T A Y C E
Rebellious visionary, storyteller, hustler, and humanitarian. I navigate my career through my heart-led pursuit for inclusion, womxn empowerment, and fierce self expression in the beauty industry. I crave an uplifting, challenging, consumer-obsessed work environment. I am constantly curious: what is next, what is new, what is working or not working. I have an itch for betterness, grounded in my life’s purpose to “empower the womxn and impact the world.”
MY PROFESSIONAL PROFILE
Up Close & Personal
After being connected to one of the best networks in the world as a graduate from the University of Southern California Marshall School of Business, I am trained to seek opportunity fearlessly. And now, as a young professional in the beauty industry, my pursuit of gender equality pushes me to advocate for female empowerment in all of my decision making in the beauty industry, currently at L'Oreal. My lifelong goal is to move the needle for women in business, and to lead by example by becoming a CEO of a beauty conglomerate one day.

ADOBE CREATIVE CLOUD
I am fluent in Adobe Illustrator, InDesign, and Photoshop. As a total nerd in high school, I mastered InDesign as the Editor-in-Chief of my school newspaper. Taking my skillset into college, my Communication Design minor is where I became proficient in all aspects of digital manipulation, especially in Illustrator.
I am the millennial that grew up with a laptop at age eleven. Needless to say, I am above qualified in all of Microsoft. I can spew out a beautiful deck in Powerpoint, using my background in design. I can write a speech in Word or do a Vlookup in Excel. My middle name could be Microsoft.
MAKEUP AND STYLING
My journey in fashion and beauty started at a young age with my Barbie dolls. In high school I took summer classes at FIDM to understand fashion design and styling. I also worked as a freelance makeup artist all throughout college. I toured Los Angeles sorority houses at USC and UCLA to perform makeup tutorials for formal recruitment.
UNIVERSITY OF SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA
2013 - 2017
I graduated from USC's Marshall School of Business in May of 2017 with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration. I also pursued a minor in Communication Design housed in USC's Roski School of Art and Design. Instead of spending my spring breaks in Cabo, I travelled with USC delegation on a 10-day business tour to India, Phillippines, and Hong Kong where I met with top executives all over the world. My involvement outside of the classroom was prominently placed on 28th Street as a founder and elected executive council member of Alpha Gamma Delta. I also became involved in Women and Youth Supporting Each Other (WYSE) as a mentor to middle schoolers local to South Central Los Angeles.
NOTRE DAME HIGH SCHOOL
2009 - 2013
As a top performing student in high school, I was also very involved with extracurriculars. I took the title of Editor-in-Chief of my school's newspaper which I turned into a magazine for higher readership. I was also the French Club President #nerdalert and Women's Empowerment Club President and Founder. It is here where I decided to navigate my career around empowering women.
