Stories of FREEDOM, EMPOWERMENT and SUCCESS.
“Being an older woman coming back to school was a very scary time for me. I wasn’t sure how schools would see me or even if they’d give me the time. I met Stephanie first and from that day I knew this was a school I wanted to be in. She guided me through the process and I started on time. My instructors I felt were picked just for me. There was never a day I felt they were there for anything else than to see us succeed and be the best nurses we could. The support, knowledge and encouragement was always there, never a lack of anything we needed to make it through the program successfully. I built a family while in school and if you’re looking for a place to not only learn, but grow as a person, Blake Austin is the place to go.”- Rhonda B.
“I’ll never forget her words. ‘You’re here because you want a career. You’re tired of having a j.o.b. – just over broke.’ We had also met Mr. A who gave us our uniform vouchers, etc. He’s an awesome teacher with a great sense of humor but he is humble and has a lot of experience to offer. After 10 months of the most learning, fun, intense, emotional, intimate, growing experiences you can have as a person I had my first day of externship. You do learn in school but it’s nothing like what you learn on externship. Blake Austin College really does do one heck of a job preparing us for our externships. I was always hearing about how outstanding we are and how excellent and professional we are trained. I was assigned to dr. William O’Connor office in Vacaville for Medical Assistant and Vacaville Valley Hospital for phlebotomy externship.”- Nina M. (Medical Assistant)
“When I enrolled I was a bit apprehensive about starting a new career. I am a breath away from turning 30, and just had a brand new baby. I wasn’t sure if going back to school was even realistic for my lifestyle. However I was at a point in my life where I knew I needed to make a change because I was tired of dead end jobs and wanted something better for myself. When I came in I was a bit insecure about being one of the oldest in the class and starting over but Mr. A made it easy and really creates a team atmosphere in the class so you don’t see age, gender or any other barriers that you may have elsewhere.
I will be going on extern next month and feel so ready and excited. You always hear people say “if I can do it anybody can” but truly if I can do it, being out of school for over a decade and a mother to 5 children… you most definitely can.”
“My favorite experience here at Blake Austin Beauty Academy would probably be the time I met my “forever client.” To experience first hand a genuine bond between a hair stylist and a client was a radical feeling. To be able to make this client feel more beautiful in her own skin with the hair she, for so long disliked, was a priceless experience.”- Meika L. (Licensed Cosmetologist)
“At Blake Austin Beauty & Wellness Academy, I truly felt that feeling of belonging. ON my first day I was welcomed with open arms. They welcomed my like family. I also become more confident with my clients. Being in school helped me overcome those fears and grow more sure of myself.”- Flynn Pule (Licensed Massage Therapist)
“My favorite experience so far has been getting to know my classmates and instructors. It’s so good to see different people from different walks of life come together and do something they all love. I love the camaraderie between the staff of different programs and the administration team.”- AJ A. (Licensed Esthetician)
“I’ve never been to a school quite as beautiful. Every client that I have that is new to the campus always compliments the facility for its cleanliness, contemporary equipment, and smiling faces! I also really enjoy all of the continuing education classes/seminars! These courses render great insight to the latest and greatest trends within our ever-changing industry.”- Erica R. (Licensed Cosmetologist)
“The most valuable thing I’ve learned at Blake Austin Beauty Academy has been to always believe in yourself and know your worth! I will always keep that with me in my professional career.”- Jeymi C. (Licensed Cosmetologist)
