On top of her amazing stylist skills and wonderful ability to build relationships with her clients, Rio’s top talent is really her persistence. She simply won’t take no for an answer when fearlessly following her dreams, and this quality has taken her so far in life.
Between playing sports, pursuing art, maintaining a college softball scholarship, and studying special education, Rio gives everything her all. And while her interests varied in college, they always came back to one thing: she wanted to help others.
It wasn’t until Rio started Beauty School at Aveda Institute that she realized how she could truly make a difference. During her time in school, she chose to embrace her creative side – taking extra courses and graduating top of her class. With her experience and additional certification in hand-tied extensions, Rio decided to join the Facetté team!
The amazing associates program and positive growth environment are just a few of the reasons Rio couldn’t imagine being anywhere else.
Initially, she got into beauty to follow a passion, but now she realizes there’s so much more to it. Seeing joy on a client’s face & watching as they regain their confidence is something that continuously adds value to her life.
