Ames, Iowa City & Plymouth, Iowa and Minnesota

Brady is a graduate of our Ames Cosmetology Program, licensed Cosmetologist, and licensed Esthetician. Brady currently serves all 3 Campuses as an Owner, President of the Company, and member of the PCI Academy Leadership Team. The PCI Academy Leadership Team is dedicated to mentoring the leaders within our company, being innovative, spreading kindness to those we interact with, and being driven while maintaining, upholding, and fostering our Core Beliefs. Our Core Beliefs as a company are: 

  • Our Students are our #1 Guest
  • Bettering our Best
  • Passing it along
  • Team Culture
  • Living in the Top 20

Brady began her career working in a Redken Salon Company in Des Moines, Iowa, where she would unfortunately develop an extreme allergy to hair color. Eventually this allergy would cause Brady to leave the Salon, but opened the door for her to become an Educator at PCI Academy (something she thought she would never do). During her career Brady has grown from being a service provider, to an educator, consultant, and eventually owner. Thanks to Brady's undying dedication to the Beauty Industry and deep rooted work ethic she has received Redken Color Certification, Pureology Certification, Microdermabrasion/Chemical Peel Certification, Hydrafacial Certification, Coaching Certification, and serves as a Consultant in the School Division for Summit Salon Business Center. While Brady loves every aspect of the Beauty and Wellness Industry, her absolute favorite is to coach and mentor others while helping them earn and live better. This passion of Brady's is evident in every area of our company as she has impacted each member of our Team through her kindness, grace, and leadership. Brady has a deep passion for learning, growing herself, growing leaders in the beauty industry, working with our students, and helping our staff in their own career. When asked what her favorite part about PCI Academy is, she said it's that we truly believe in our students and want to help them succeed.

When Brady isn't working, she loves to spend time with her husband and their two daughters traveling, being outside, and tending her (large) garden together.
