I started out with a career in Finance and Accounting as I was seeking stability and practicality, and like many people, was hoping to climb the ladder in the corporate world. The further I climbed, the clearer it became to me that I wasn’t following my passion. Even though I had put in the hours and hard work to obtain an MBA, I wasn’t happy in my career. It was time to make a change. I have always loved being a part of people’s special occasions, whether big or small. I come from a very large family, and as I attended more special events, I realized that the part I enjoyed the most was helping my family and friends feel beautiful. Over time, it became obvious that I wanted to learn more about makeup artistry. I began working with artists who were hired for weddings, showers, fashion shows, as well as other events. Slowly, I found myself seeking a certification to work independently as a makeup artist. My journey has been amazingly rewarding so far, and I am excited to continue to fuel this fire by helping to make even more people feel naturally beautiful on their special occasion. Often people have pressure when they are the center of attention of a big (or small) occasion, but they are not comfortable with this role. It is my goal to make you feel comfortable with that role. Now, my personal satisfaction in my career comes from seeing how simply using the right tools to bring out a person’s natural beauty can transform a person’s confidence and self-image. Other people are completely confident in the limelight, and I can make them shine even brighter. That is why I do what I do. Now I enjoy climbing my own ladder by becoming an independent artist and having my own business. I am continually refining my skill-set by learning from my mentors and through certification programs. I want to offer an all-inclusive experience for you. So please continue to visit my website to see what I have to offer. Currently, it is hair and makeup, but who knows what the future will hold? Born in Chicago, raised in Orlando, Florida and based out of Atlanta, Georgia, Ami provides hair and makeup services across the U.S. and internationally.
