The most rewarding part of being a mom: Watching him grow up to be a well-rounded boy. He’s such a gentleman and he is so smart. He’s changing all the time and I couldn’t be more proud of the little man he is becoming.
The most challenging thing about going to school and being a mom: Juggling everything. I’ve been a stay at home mom for the past nine years so this has been a huge adjustment.
What made you decide to go to school at this point in your life? Kayden is a little older now and I was ready for a change. It was now or never!
What advice do you have for other moms who are contemplating about going back to school? It seems that no time is the right time. As moms we put our kids first, as we should, but there is a time when you have to do something for you— so do it!
How do you plan on spending Mother’s Day? With my husband and son at home relaxing.
“The teachers were amazing! Without Bellus, I wouldn’t have the rewarding life I have today. School was something I looked forward to every single day. I can’t believe I have a job that I love going to every day.”
“For the past year I have been working on super-yachts in Spain as a massage therapist for billionaires and have loved every second of it! I don’t know what I would’ve done without Bellus’ training and expertise.”
“I love how hands-on the nail program is at Bellus. I am a visual and hands-on learner and I appreciated the time and focus on my advancement throughout the program. I would definitely recommend Bellus Academy to anyone interested in beauty and wellness education, especially the nail program!”
“The program and educators in Make-up Artistry are exceptional. The curriculum was so well designed that each day I couldn’t wait to get to school and begin the next step in learning high-end makeup. I feel very comfortable after taking this class to apply for a job anywhere in makeup, including a Hollywood studio, theater, photography or in a high-end salon and spa.”
“As a cosmo crossover, the Barbering Program was not only an excellent way to brush up on the basics, but also the best way to take my career to the next level. The staff was so helpful in every aspect and I highly recommend the program.”
