Michael Shea

School Coach

I've had the privilege of immersing myself in the beauty industry for over three decades. My journey has taken me from the salon chair to the boardroom, allowing me to explore various facets of this ever-evolving field.

In 2003, I embarked on a new chapter in my career by joining Summit, where I had the opportunity to share my knowledge and expertise with salons and schools. My time with SSBC lasted until 2011, and during this period, I made a meaningful impact on countless professionals in the beauty industry.

One of the highlights of my career occurred in 2006 when I opened what is now known as Summit Salon Academy in Tacoma, Washington. This endeavor allowed me to combine my passion for education with my love for the beauty industry, creating a nurturing environment for aspiring beauty professionals.

Beyond my professional pursuits, I am a true Foodie and wine collector, savoring the culinary delights and the rich stories behind each bottle. I am also a dedicated sports fan, finding joy in the thrill of competition and the camaraderie of fellow enthusiasts.
