Shantea Kennon

I’m a motivated, hard-working individual. I have over eight years experience in the field of cosmetology and four years experience in graphics communications technology and photography. In 2003, I attended Charles Academy of Beauty Culture in Mobile, Alabama . For the past eight years, I’ve been enjoying my journey as a cosmetologist.

Growing up, my sister inspired me to come out of my shell and pursue my career in cosmetology. She took nothing and made it into something magnificent. That’s when I knew being a cosmetologist would be a good start in my career as a designer.
In 2010, I received a degree from Bishop State Community College in Graphic Communications Technology and three years later from Alabama State University in Business Administration with a concentration in Marketing.

Patricia believes that God has given her the mandate to “empower” all people to be all that God says that they can be.  She does this by speaking/teaching the Word of God in  a revelatory, yet simplistic manner.  Patricia utilizes this in every facet of her life, whether in the church, the community or at work.  She believes that there is no place, no mountain too high and no valley too low, that can’t be overcome by the help of God.  Phillipians 4:13: “For I can do everything with the help of Christ who gives me the strength I need” (NIV) ; III John 1:2:  “Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.” To that end, I know that I can bring not only experience and professionalism, but I have the heart and passion needed to provide excellent quality services to assist you with achieving and maintaining your goal.
