Student Experience Coordinator

Iowa City, Iowa

Maria is a licensed Cosmetologist and Educator and also holds certifications in Microdermabrasion and Chemical Peels. Maria serves our Iowa City Campus as a member of our Student Experience Coordinator Team. As a Student Experience Coordinator, Maria works with our Admissions, Financial Aid, Guest Services, and Education Team to make sure that each student has an amazing experience during their time at PCI Academy. Our Student Experience Coordinator Team helps host Student Orientation, make sure each student has their technology profiles set up, helps with all aspects of student's schedules, and tracks student's attendance and grades throughout their entire journey with us. 

Maria is one of our original Team Members when we opened our Iowa City Campus and has been with us since 2019, first as a Cosmetology Educator and now as one of our Student Experience Coordinators. When Maria began her career she felt that she wasn't set up for success and had to teach herself not only how to perform the necessary technical skills she would need, but also the business skills required to become successful. This experience has instilled within Maria a deep passion for teaching all of our students the Business Skills that they will need to be successful in their own careers right from the start, and she takes great pride in being able to pass down the information that she has gathered along the way. One of Maria's favorite things about the Beauty Industry is that we get to take care of other people and help them to feel good about themselves and that when we look good, we feel good!

When Maria isn't working you can find her outside enjoying all kinds of outdoor activities! She especially loves to go fishing, hiking, boating, cycling, and camping!
