We'll focus on building clinic floor traffic, increasing retail sales, doubling chemical sales, finding and filling clients' needs, and much more! You will discover how to work smarter, not harder!

During her career she has worked behind the chair in both private and franchise salon settings. In 2004, Lisa worked for a private beauty school in admissions and found herself motivation and inspiring others to enter with her into this rewarding industry. In 2007, she was promoted to enrollment manager where her role was to establish and meet goals of incoming students along with the responsibility to train and support other representatives. Her career continued to evolve when she joined the Milady team as an academic account manager.
