Gillian began her journey at PCI Academy in 2018 after taking a gap year following high school to pursue her love for skin and makeup. As a student, Gillian quickly realized that she was not only passionate about performing the services she was learning, but also about the business side of the Beauty and Wellness Industry! Once completing her time at PCI Academy, Gillian began working with a local Salon and Spa Company where she built her clientele and skills, until the 2020 Shut Down. Following the Pandemic Shut Down Gillian made a career change and went to work for a popular Facial Bar Chain that had opened a location near her where she could continue her career as an Advanced Practice Esthetician. After working for the company for a year Gillian was promoted to manager of the location she was working at; Gillian remained with this company for a few years and had an absolute blast leading her location, but also helping train new staff members and franchisees! As Gillian began to train she discover another passion within the Beauty Industry, teaching! This passion has brought her back to PCI Academy where she can now pass along her vast knowledge of skin care, business, and leadership!
When Gillian isn't working you can usually find her spending time with her high school sweetheart, their four pets (2 dogs and 2 cats), doing makeup, or watching some skincare videos on TikTok!
