A native of Oregon, Elya moved to California after graduating High School and soon found herself working as a dental assistant in Ukiah, CA. Though the job was rewarding with potential at becoming a career she found she "Hated it! Way to blah for me." She liked the interaction with clients that she had but it didn't fulfill her artistic needs. "I've always loved meeting and getting to know new people. So I thought, why not try Beauty School."
Elya soon found herself enrolled at Ukiah Beauty School.And she quickly "fell in LOVE with Hair!" She found it fulfilled her need to artistically create as well as allowing her to meet and develop new friendships every day.
"I feel so lucky going to work every day and actually loving and wanting to be there. This is my calling and I will do it 'til I die!"
Elya is certainly one of our Rock Stars here at Image Provocateur and we couldn't be happier that she found Dental Assisting so 'blah'!
