Its great being my own boss but I don’t think I would have been able to do any of that without the ton of education and foundation I received from Aveda

Megan Bitterman

Educator at Aveda Institute Columbus

I went to a 4 year college... did corporate America for about 7 years and did not enjoy that grind whatsoever. I just did not feel the payoff. So, I found Aveda, took a tour and signed up!
