“Women can be doctors and they make good ones, too.” As a teenager, my father encouraged me with this advice. Then he took me to the hospital to meet his female colleagues. Following in his footsteps, I became a physician.

“It’s important, before you make a comment to someone, to see what it would feel like if you got the same comment back.” As a makeup artist, that advice was instrumental in giving me the keys to success. I work with beautiful celebrities all the time, but they have the same human concerns and sensitivities that anyone else does and it’s important to understand that.
