As with all things TRG, Arete was born from passion. As the owner and facilitator of the TRG brand, I've most times made career moves out of the necessity to provide for my twin boys. Although there has always been a high level of passion behind those endeavors, life was always moving at a super fast pace for me. Since my boys were born, life has afforded me little time to really relax and enjoy the things I love most.
After cultivating a career in cosmetology as a stylist and salon owner, I pursued a degree in Fashion Merchandising & Marketing. However, life threw me a few curveballs and I needed to pivot in order to make things work for my family. I changed my major to Business Management, obtained my certification in personal training, opened a gym and retired from behind the styling chair. After a world of craziness, Arete is my peace and the return to an industry that I've loved forever. The name represents how I live my life and how I choose to show up for the people that trust my expertise - EXCELLENTLY.
