Where do you live?
I live in Cedarburg WI. It's about an hour and a half north of Chicago.
What competitions have you won?
I've won all types of competitions from Pink & White Sculptured nails to nail art.
What was your first competition?
The Midwest Beauty Show in 1991, flat nail art. I placed 3rd!
What made you decide to compete?
People I worked with had competed and it looked like something I wanted to try.
Why do you enjoy NAILPRO Competitions, as compared to other nail competitions?
I've competed in many different competitions and NAILPRO is by far the very best competitions around. Everyone at the NAILPRO Competitions has worked many years on their rules and regulations, judging, scoring etc... They are completely non-political. (I've judged for NAILPRO and seen this first hand) Jewel and Carla also listen to the competitors for suggestions and implement them in the following cycle. Because of NAILPRO's stellar reputation, top competitors from around the world compete in them.
