Mary Beth Parker - SmartStyle Hair Salon

Why did you want to get started in the beauty industry?

I found an industry where I can help people feel beautiful inside and out while they are in my chair. And it's a job where I don't constantly feel the need for a vacation.

What have you accomplished since graduation?

I am now working at SmartStyle with people that I consider friends. It enables me as a single mother to enjoy a job that can support me and my children while I finish my bachelor's degree at ETSU that I started long ago. It also gives me the opportunity to meet people that I can invite to the JC Flow Arts Community that I facilitate.
