Business Acumen

Directly after having earned a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, Marketing from the University of Southern California, I worked at Merle Norman Cosmetics on the core marketing team doing product development and management for their color cosmetics. After leaving California and arriving in Oregon I took on a position with and eventually became the chief financial officer and HR director. It’s there I truly learned about the needs of a growing business in a market serving independent businesses – at the time we serviced approximately a quarter of a million musicians.

Industry Know-How

The on-the-ground experience I offer comes from having successfully executed numerous cosmetics events for various multi-national brands such as: Maybelline, Lancome, L’Oreal, Merle Norman, Physician’s Formula, KISS Cosmetics– to name only a few.

As a lead educator for both Burberry and Merle Norman cosmetics, I’ve trained artists/sales staff on a large scale for the retail environment. In those roles I have been able to help companies create a very complete structure to support freelance artists in various in-store event situations and to reinforce the overall brand communication.

I had the chance and the opportunity to work with Kristen during my previous professional path – for a cosmetic brand. Both her know-how in make-up applications and her abilities to master in-depth training approaches allowed us to work efficiently. Her wide expertise allows her to provide perfect and adjusted training tools. Indeed, she is capable of training many profiles from retail staff (with limited knowledge in make up) to more expert artists. Her professionalism and personality make her one of the most efficient brand trainers I have worked with. She knows how to leverage both a Brand DNA and sell-out. She is very good at her job and also very creative. I recommend her and I would certainly work with her again in the future. – Emilie T., International Operational Marketing Director for Interparfums, Burberry Beauty
