It has taken some time to cultivate my voice and truly find my purpose in life.At first I always believed it would be my love for Beauty culture that would soar me to the top…being a make-up artist I knew I could change lives of women one face at a time.In a moment it became my clear mission to utilize my skills and knowledge in way that helped people creatively embrace their uniqueness as their strength .
Introducing SIR5R. I built a 20 year career in the Beauty industry,working with top brands and witnessing how making someone look good can change their entire outlook on life.. A small change can create hope.In 2001 I found out I was HIV positive and my own hope was gone.Driven into a spiral of fear and shame,I found myself in a battle for my life …This time with drugs and alcohol.With the love and support of family and friends ,today I’m sober and my HIV is undectable.
I began volunteering to provide Beauty services to Oncology clients and witnessed the dignity created by that bit of compassion for chronically and terminally ill patients.My next step was to expand and provide Beauty and grooming events to clients of drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities. My spirit yearned to do more.
“ The moment they first look in the mirror is truly amazing.They see how beautiful they really are”
The vision is simple ,yet revonlitionary: to create a sustainable business providing a world-class Grooming and personal care experience to fund services that would create dignity and empowerment for those in need.The areas of need are chronically and terminally ill cancer and HIV patients and people dealing with long term addiction to drugs and alcohol recovery.
The Beauty and wellness industry is growing as a resource for helping people heal.SIR5R seeks to be on the forefront of that change.
