In the past I have trained, licensed professionals, how to perform various aesthetic procedures, including but not limited to business development.

Interests: I successfully homeschool my son. When I am not tutoring, I enjoy the peace and tranquility of reviving vintage furniture. I find this to be very relaxing in the same way as cooking as they both soothe the soul, allow original creations and bring family together for great dialogues.

In conversations I engage in an array of trending topics: self-help, current events, parenting and much more.
