Background: “I basically got started in this business through my mother. I needed a career. I love what I do and I started in Las Vegas. I moved out to Pahrump and was here from 1991 to 2007. I then went back to Las Vegas to work and manage JW Marriot Spa from 2008 to 2013. From there I worked on my own private business. I am a manicurist and do spray tans and pedicures. I use organic products that are known in the big hotels in Las Vegas.”
