A make-up junkie simply watching, learning, exploring my mother’s Mary Kay Kit, and playing in my mother and aunt’s clothes and J. Renee shoes as a child, is where the love affair first began.
After graduating high school, I began working full-time and attended the University of Houston; graduating with a degree in Business Management and Marketing. While already fast and steady in my career at an HP Remarketing Company, I began laying my roots in the corporate world and later moved on to Baker Hughes then General Electric.
Although successful in my career, my heart was still not content, so I signed up to be a Mary Kay Consultant and begin taking makeup classes and became a free-lance makeup artist. Beauty and fashion have always been sisters and brothers to me and I knew it was time for me to explore my true passion for fashion and opened Trésor Caché Boutique in April 2014. Using my knowledge and business ethics obtained while in corporate America, my business began online and later flourished to a storefront.
In January 2015, I received news that would ultimately change my life forever; I was diagnosed with oral cancer: Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma. Faced with a rare form of oral cancer for God’s chosen rare jewel, I endured 4 surgeries, the inability to eat and drink, a dramatic 50 lbs. weight loss, and learning to speak again all in one year! I was chosen to fight this fight to let women know to pursue their dreams, follow their passions, and know that for with God, Nothing Shall be Impossible! After completing the fight, I knew it was time to follow my dreams and leave the corporate world to become 100% a full-time entrepreneur. This was the best JUMP I’ve made in my life.
An ordeal such as this not only affects you, but also ones you love the most! I thank God for blessing me to be a wife to my college sweetheart, Terrance Easley, mother to the best son in the world, Chase, and sister of the Jerrols’ Girls clan!
