Cosmetology Educator

Ames, Iowa

Nelia has been a licensed Cosmetologist for over 10 years, and spent 4 of those in a leadership position. Nelia currently serves at our Ames Campus as a Salon Area Classroom Educator. 

During her career Nelia has been extremely fortunate to gain a large amount of product knowledge when working in the Product Distribution side of the industry. Nelia is an avid seeker of knowledge and continues to seek out the latest color techniques and information about the newest products. Nelia also loves to teach haircutting and feels that this is where she really begins to see the students build their confidence in both their techniques and themselves. Nelia's main goal as an educator is to encourage our students to be themselves and to be the very best version they can be each and everyday. 

When Nelia isn't working she loves to try out different and new kinds of food, restaurants, and to travel to new places with her fiancé! Nelia recently went canoeing down a river and is excited to continue doing that in her free time!
