Testimonials

Annalise Ochoa-Jackson

I graduated July 18, 2007 from the manicuring course offered by Sam Brown’s.

The staff is simply wonderful. They really care about their students. I felt right at home during my time at the school. You couldn’t ask for better people. They take great pride in what they do, and make enormous strides to ensure everyone succeeds.

The school has built a reputation to be proud of, because of that my employer felt confident in my ability to be successful. Attending SBI has allowed me to have a rewarding career in the industry for the past three years.
