What was your first job ever?
I was a salad bar girl at Ponderosa Steak House! It was so fun dealing with the public.
Who would you like to work with?
I would love to work with a major nail product brand so that I could co-brand Footnanny. Celebrity-wise, I would like to work with Lady GaGa on a regular basis; she is always on her feet!
If you could be anybody famous, who would you be?
I would be Oprah Winfrey because, even though she is my private client, I would love to be able to make some of her major decisions for just one week; it would help me with my present company decisions.
What inspires you?
The Holy Bible inspires me to have faith that all my blessings are here and now. I just have to believe and keep the faith.
What was your most embarrassing moment?
When I tried to polish with a pearl white polish after only being out of nail school a few months! So embarrassed, but a wonderful goal to accomplish!
What was your childhood ambition?
I wanted to be a nurse and take care of people. I guess that is why I care so much about mankind.
What is your favorite type of music?
I love R&B! My favorite song though is “Let’s Get This Party Started.”
What is your most treasured possession?
My Nail Technician license.
I can’t discuss nails without…
discussing the importance of pedicuring.
