Brenda E. | Salon Coordinator
Service Industry Detour
Before Brenda stood behind the desk booking appointments at greeting guests at Chop Tops, a salon on 39th Street, she was sitting was sitting in one of the stylist chairs as a customer. They needed someone; she did it because she likes all the girls at the shop and "it's a sweet job." A student in x-ray technology, Brenda will be graduating in May. She says, "It's kinda nerdy and satisfies my need to not be broke, do something with people and makes me think."

Originally from Puerto Rico, Brenda lived in Florida for eight years before moving to Kansas City three years ago. She says she loves Kansas City. "It's really easy to make friends here. I think I'm going to stay a while." She likes going to shows when she's not studying or working: Adam Lee & the Dead Horse Sound Company, Whiskey Breath and other local honky tonk bands. Brenda's tattoos are the work of Cory Farago.

  Make KC Better » It would be good to see more people out to see shows. For people to support art and music. More person to person community building
