AVANT PROFESSIONAL SINCE: 1990
At 26 years of service with Avant, Jackie Rumsey is literally our “Jack-of-all-trades”. She began her career with Avant in December of 1990 as an Esthetician and Make-up Artist at our Guadalupe location. She also worked as a freelance make-up artist for many years, working for famous local photographers as well as individuals. In 1999, Jackie became a Wedding and Salon Coordinator at our Gateway location. She spent many a Saturday and Sunday representing our salons at local Wedding Expos. It was not unusual for her to be at a wedding venue by 4:00 a.m. on a Saturday morning doing make-up for brides on-site all over Central Texas. In 2005, Jackie became the General Manager for all Avant locations. She is currently the Salon Coordinator for the Avant Salon Gateway location and a pivotal member of our Leadership Team. She also spearheads administrative and financial duties for all three of our salons. In addition to her regular duties, Jackie is our den mother, coach and cheerleader. Jackie is a Fashionista through and through, and comes to work everyday as if she’s about to work the catwalk. Family and communication are high values for Jackie, and she invests a lot of care in her relationships with others. Jackie scratch-bakes each employees favorite cake on their birthdays. In her spare time she enjoys doing yard work with her husband, hanging out in the pool, going to the beach and pinning new outfits on Pinterest.
