Staff Spotlight: Emily Hernandez

We were thrilled to welcome Emily Hernandez, a beautician, to Newton Presbyterian Manor in April! Emily splits her time working in our salon as well as another salon, Magic Mirrors, in Wichita. You’ll find her on our campus Mondays and Tuesdays from 9 to 5.

“I really enjoy the atmosphere and people here. The staff seem to love their job and all the ladies who come in have been so lovely and a joy to be around,” said Emily. “It’s been such a positive environment already.”

Emily grew up in Topeka and went to college in Wichita where she also taught art to middle school students. Once she decided to change to another creative career – cosmetology – she moved back to Topeka. But earlier this year, she made the move back to Wichita to be with her boyfriend.

“I would call myself an artist – I tend to draw, paint and make jewelry. This is a very creative field. I’ve loved every minute of it. I’ve been in cosmetology for three years and still feel fairly new, but I love it,” said Emily.

Emily and her boyfriend have three dogs. She loves music and coffee and wants all residents to know that they are welcome in the salon.
