During the 2013 Association of Private Sector Colleges and Universities Convention and Exposition, Career College Central Editor Kevin Kuzma visited with a number of sector leaders at the magazine's booth space. Well-known innovator in beauty and wellness education, Lynelle Lynch, president of Bellus Academy, was among them.
Throughout her career, Lynch has helped transform the perception of cosmetology schools, reinvent the quality of education they provide, and engage an elite level of professionals to offer advanced academics and a stronger focus on career development. Under her leadership, Bellus Academy has become the leading institution for advanced beauty and wellness, earning the title “the Harvard of Beauty Schools” (San Diego Magazine 2008) and attracting international students and the most prestigious industry figures alike.
In this interview, Lynch discusses cosmetology schools and Beauty Changes Lives, a non-profit organization for which she plays an integral role.
