Welcome to Cosmetology at Coastal Bend College. I am privileged to introduce you to this highly successful instructional program. For more specific information regarding my educational background and credentials, please refer to the Educational Background page. My main concern herein is to inform you of my personal background and teaching philosophy. Forty years ago, I enthusiastically entered the world of cosmetology. At the time, my main concern was to support my family's need. My five children needed my time, attention and devotion, but as they grew older, I decided to expand upon my passion for cosmetology. Struggling with a growing family, I went back to college and first obtained my Cosmetology Instructor's Certification. This specific accomplishment is one of my proudest as it allows me to impart years of knowledge in my chosen career built by much struggle and effort. One of my greatest responsibilities is to help students realize that they can successfully work in the cosmetology industry with great pride and true satisfaction, as I have for over four decades. I passionately enjoy my work at Coastal Bend College, and I hope you will join us. You will find a warm environment conducive to a vigorous educational experience here. As you will see, I have a strong desire to help students reach their highest potential in spite of life's struggles.
