Renee serves SSBC as a Summit Salon Consultant in our School Division.  She brings 30 years of beauty industry experience and has co-owned  The Salon Professional Academy, located in Kenosha, WI since 2007. Her school is one of many that have fully implemented the Summit Salon Systems. This has led to tremendous growth for both her school and for the students they teach. Renee says that the SSBC Level System in particular “is what truly defines the difference between hobby, job, and career-minded graduates.”

Renee’s passion lies with new talent entering the industry. She believes that students are our future and schools bear a critical responsibility for raising the bar on business education. By incorporating proven salon-business systems into the students’ training they graduate with the momentum and knowledge they need to become top stylists in today’s industry. Renee’s dedication shines through her successful students. Students who routinely surpass their goals and become the highly-desirable, salon-ready students, our industry needs.
