Coaching for Success
Before becoming a professional coach, I was a proud hair stylist and salon owner for 27 years. In my former career, I learned firsthand what it was like to run a business and be the business. I also learned that business and life are all about connections and relationships. My work in the salon gave me a broad insight into humanity and the joys and challenges that life throws at us.
I started my coaching journey more than a decade ago when I hired a career coach who helped me see things more clearly at a time when my vision was cloudy. (You can read more about it on the home page.) I now work with individuals and groups to harness their own innate gifts and strengths to overcome obstacles that are standing in the way of a fuller, richer life.
My early career as a hairdresser took me to New York, Atlanta, and Miami Beach, where I worked with some of the industries top talent and beauty business titans before moving back to my hometown of Salt Lake City in 2002 where I built and managed salons for Sanctuary Day Spa, before founding my namesake Landis Lifestyle Salons in 2005. With more than 60 employees in two locations, we reached 2 million dollars in revenue our first full year while averaging $70,000 per month in retail sales, thanks to the environment we created, the team we assembled, and the systems we put into place.
Beginning in 2009, I worked as a consultant for IMAGE Studios, a salon suite concept which now boasts over 100 locations nationwide. I had my own hair studio at the Salt Lake location for over seven years. I currently serve as the Industry Expert for the franchise where I develop and teach business-focused education for our health, wellness, and beauty professionals.
Curiosity, connection, and creativity are my greatest motivations, and it's those pursuits that drew me to try life in places all over such as Germany, Australia, San Francisco, Atlanta, Miami, and New York. I live in my favorite of all the places, Palm Springs, California, with my husband, Steven, and our dogs, Bruno and Ruth.
