Teacher Spotlight: Alexis "AJ" Willis

Our growing class list would be quite difficult to pull off without the awesome instructors we've been so honored to meet.  We'd like to give you the same opportunity to get to know our Chattery teachers a bit better. 

So, here are four questions to help get to know our Creating a 2015 Vision Board instructor, Alexis "AJ" Willis! 

 How did you get started in the world of beauty?

The day I was born.  Beauty has been inside of  me since the day I got here!  Haha!  I have always been a fan of all things beautiful. What I did not like is the fact that women looked to external sources for their identity and value which is why I founded Natural Beautiful Me. It’s not a perfect walk but I am enjoying the journey to becoming more and more beautiful everyday.

Why do you love Chattanooga?

I will admit I didn’t always love Chattanooga. I didn’t believe that anything was here. But when I changed my perception, what I realized was that what I didn’t see was an opportunity to create it. That is what I believe is the heart of the start up movement in Chattanooga.  I am grateful for a city that supports wacky ideas and makes it work. It’s a fabulous thing I tell ya. I LOVE Cha!

What's one topic you'd like to learn through The Chattery?

I would like to learn more about graphic design software and … bartending. I know, bartending is random but I think I would rock out a bar with my fantastic red lipstick!

What's something someone would be surprised to learn about you?

I am shy around boys… really… I am truly bashful…
