While toiling away at her well-paying paralegal job at a prestigious law firm in sunny Palm Beach, Florida, Kristen Wade realized her career wasn’t making her happy. With the encouragement of her super supportive husband, she took evening classes to become a licensed esthetician which led to her first of many lash courses. That was it; she’d found her happy place. Kristen resigned her law firm job to focus on her new passion in lash artistry, and in three years hasn’t looked back since. She graduated from all of SugarLash PRO’s courses and programs and saw her lash business take off. Early in her career, Kristen told herself she’d never become an educator, worrying that the young lash industry would become flooded with lash artists. But it didn’t take her long to realize that there was no need to worry — in fact, with such a huge demand for quality lash work, and way too few properly-educated lash artists, it became apparent to her that veteran lash artists would get more out of the industry by helping train others to continue elevating it. Now that her daughter has just turned one, Kristen’s goal is to strive for success and teach her that dreams can become reality; it’s a goal she’s now helping new lash artists attain as well.
