West Liberty, IA
Hello! My name is Maggie and I am new to the professional world of makeup, however I have had a long time passion for all things beauty and especially creating gorgeous looks with makeup.
I have lived in eastern Iowa most of my life and love it. I am a mother to a two and a half year old beauty named Sloane and am married to the love of my life Nick. In October of 2017 I was diagnosed with stage four cholangiocarcinoma that I am still currently battling. I am in a clinical trial based out of the University of Chicago and travel their often for treatment. I currently am employed with a major hospital working within the medical insurance sector as an instructional services coordinator. For the past year or so I have also become a Mary Kay consultant as I love their skincare line and use it regularly on myself. While I love my career, I was looking for something more.
After my diagnosis in October, I have done a lot of soul searching and looking into what my passions are and what really makes me happy. I have decided to further my self by enrolling in QC Makeup Academy to receive my accreditation and turn my passion into a career. Once completing my accreditation, I hope to start both a makeup/beauty blog, as well as start a freelance makeup artistry career offering services for photography shoots, bridal, as well as teaching clients about makeup application and putting together portfolios for clients for their day to day needs with makeup.
