What is Bosley Professional Strength?
Bosley Professional Strength is the answer to fine-textured, thinning hair and hair loss issues for both women and men. We have the advanced technologies and the expertise to address the needs within what is the fastest growing segment in the beauty industry.
What do you say to salon owners who don’t currently carry a line of hair care products for fine, thinning hair?
I actually ask them a question: What is the percentage of you clients that have fine texture hair? Every salon has 25% – 75 % fine texture hair guests and those guests want fuller, thicker, healthier hair. If the clients’ specific needs are not being met, the salon may be losing business, or have the potential to. The client may go somewhere else to buy the products they need. One of the great things about Bosley Pro is that the guest will begin to see some results within the first 30 days with.
What does your typical work day look like?
Everyday is completely different; mostly I travel to connect with our distributors. I strategize and implement plans, attend sales meetings, distributor launches/trainings, salon and stylist trainings, education classes, business events, detailing and lets not forget about all of the shows.

I hear you have a couple of dogs you kind of like?
“My Boy’s” Capone & Kalu – They are the best! They put a smile on my face and make me laugh no matter what kind of day I have. Best therapy ever!
I have one day to spend in Utica. What should I do?
You have to visit Starved Rock State Park, voted the #1 attraction in the state of Illinois. Beautiful waterfalls, wildlife, trails to explore, fishing and boating. It’s a magnificently beautiful park!
What would be your ideal vacation?
The beauty industry has been very good to me, I have had great opportunities to travel all over the US and internationally, getting to meet great people and getting to see our beautiful world. That being said, I would love a good “staycation”…where I can just stay home and relax.
I hear a good way to unwind is with a couple of Kamikazees. True or false?
I will take the 5th! LOL
How many trade shows would you say you’ve worked in your career?
I have lost count over the years! From the time I started my career in the Beauty Industry I have always been part of the show team and I love them!
Along with “the boys” I hear you have some kids. Best thing about being a mom?
So many things that I don’t think I could pick just one…everything would be my answer. From the first time they smile at you, hold your finger for the first time, their first word, discover everything for the first time, all the great milestones you have with your children is amazing. Watching them grow up to be the most amazing, loving and caring adults. So proud of my children and bless to be their mother!
