Additional Information

As a hair replacement specialist I worked for Hair Club for Men in New York as a technical manager and opened up their Minneapolis location. As a hair replacement specialist I had national recognition.

I also worked at Cancer Treatments of America as a consultant for an in patient image enhancement program. I was instrumental in running a community outreach program for cancer strategy seminars and educating people on the needs of cancer patients. I did platform work for many trade shows and was commissioned by several performing artists to do specialty hair pieces.

I was the 2005 recipient for all of Chicago and northern Illinois by the BBB for market place ethics and business integrity and I was invited to a luncheon for 400 people to receive my award. I was also the recipient and given a key to the city of Highland Park, Illinois from the mayor of Highland Park for many community projects I have initiated and raised money to support.

I was able to get health insurance companies to assist with paying for patients wigs because I was a licensed supplier and had a national provider id number.

Unfortunately I got sick in June 2016 and had to close my business after 24 years.

I made a full recovery and found a new career being a cake decorator. I really enjoy the artistic aspect and have found many useful skills from my former career of designing and using color to maximize cake design.

I am a hard worker and have no outside obligations that would prevent me from showing up to work everyday on time and being productive.
