Behind every successful woman is herself and a great story…..
Tell us a little about yourself….
I was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico. I am from a military family, so growing up took place where ever the Army decided my dad should be stationed. Luckily, I got the chance to be in places like Germany, Puerto Rico, Colorado, and, lastly, Texas. I’ve been in Texas for 14 years so I consider myself a Puerto Texican hehe.
What is the best advice you could give to someone who is thinking about a new career in the beauty industry…..
My best advice is to never give up and to adapt to change. There will be highs and lows but when you keep moving forward with all the challenges you may face, it makes your success story even sweeter.
I started my first Eyelash Extension business at the age of 23 and it was nerve-racking but I knew that if I wanted to be successful, I had to take risks. I had no business experience and I really didn’t have a lot of money but one thing I had was passion. I believe if you’re passionate about something, success always follows. You don’t have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great.
Early on in my career I relocated to a new city shortly after starting my new salon. It was hard to leave a business that I had not only worked hard on, but I had barely even started. I knew that in order to be successful, that I would have to adapt to change, whether planned or not, because change is inevitable. My ability to adapt, has allowed me to capture many opportunities. From crossing over my fitness career, to creating a fitness beauty content for major fitness publications, to extending my current business PeachyKeen Studio and experience into an online platform, my newest endeavor, BeautyFix.io.
We all love beauty products, what are your top 3 you CANNOT live without?
My top 3 beauty products that I cannot live without is #1 eyelash extensions because you wake up feeling made up, concealer because I have dark circles whether I get 1 hour of sleep or 10, and blush or bronzer. My Favorite concealer is Mac Cosmetic’s Prolongwear because it has a great coverage and it doesn’t crease. My favorite blush is Mac Cosmetic’s blush in the color Peaches.
Tell us an interesting fact about yourself.
An interesting fact about myself is that I was a professional bodybuilder (in the bikini division) for 4 years and I am a Bodybuilding.com Spokesmodel. Fitness is a way of life and whether I do it professionally or not, being healthy will always be one of my passions.
