Congratulations to Ms. Vickie Andres as CACCS Faculty Member of the Year. Each year, Colorado Association of Career Colleges and Schools selects one faculty member from hundreds of nominations to be awarded Faculty of the Year. This year International Salon and Spa Academy’s very own Ms. Vickie was chosen.
Vickie’s commitment to teaching and training her students is unsurpassed. Vickie took over as Director of our Esthetics program over 5 years ago. With hard work and determination she has created a program that is sought after by persons not only in the Colorado Springs area but across Colorado. Vickie continues her education every chance she gets. Vickie’s commitment was recognized by the owners of Image Skin Care Products. The owners of the company asked her how do you do it? Vickie replied “I love what I do and who I do it for”. Vickie’s career goals are simple: be the best and stay the best. Vickie strives for excellence in herself and her students daily. Vickie has taught students in our program as well as teaching over 30 instructors how to teach Esthetics. Vickie’s work is never done. Vickie not only works with our Estheticians, she works tirelessly with our Cosmetologists, Hairstylists, Barbers, and Nail Technicians.
Vickie represents the Academy in every education event she can find. Vickie’s students come back to visit with her and spend time with her. Vickie has two students who return to deliver education in her classroom on products that they now endorse and are sales representatives for. No task is too small or too big for Vickie. All any of the staff, students, or clients need to do is ask for her help and she is there for them. Vickie teaches us all how to work together, play together, and create a culture that is kind, considerate, and selfless.
