EASTERN 2009 Cosmetology/Upper Moreland High School graduate, Kaitlyn Reading Bussman, is currently a stylist at Bliss Salon in Saint Joseph, MO, where she resides with her husband and daughter.
After high school graduation and completing her program at EASTERN, Kaitlyn passed the State Board Examination for Cosmetology. Before moving to Missouri with her husband in 2012, Kaitlyn volunteered her time as a member of EASTERN’s Cosmetology Occupational Advisory Committee, which helps the instructors and administration to keep the program’s curriculum state-of-the-art, and she co-taught EASTERN’s Looking Good Summer Fun course in June and July of 2012. While she was still in Pennsylvania, she worked as a stylist at Shear Madness in Warminster, PA. During her time as a Cosmetology student at EASTERN, Kaitlyn was very involved with the school’s student leadership organization, SkillsUSA.
“Thanks to the education I received at EASTERN, I am working in a top rated salon in Missouri with a current Pennsylvania license, said Kaitlyn. I am a successful hairdresser with knowledge that astonishes my coworkers. Thank you to my instructors, Ms. Wilson and Ms. Leyden for giving me the skills to succeed no matter where I go.”
EASTERN’s Cosmetology program is a two-year half-day program that provides the skills necessary to begin a career in the cosmetology field. In Pennsylvania, as well as other states, cosmetologists and nail technicians must be licensed to practice in the field.
