President & Executive Director
LeeAnn believes in the power of education for small business owners and realized the lack of such education from the beauty industry is a liability. With her background in nonprofits such as Central Nebraska Community Services, Head Start, & Project Homeless Connect, LeeAnn is equipped with a thorough understanding of nonprofit budgeting, operations, and awareness campaigns. As the President and Executive Director of the Sovereign Stylist, she values the free flow of ideas from her team, and the creativity each director brings to the table.
In 2018, LeeAnn started a small Facebook Group to help educate fellow Booth Renters on the legalities of misclassification. The group’s popularity grew, and LeeAnn decided to expand the type of content offered and build a nonprofit business out of the result. Thus, The Sovereign Stylist was born. Over the years, the group has gained 8.9 thousand members and continues to grow.
In 2018, as a board member for Project Homeless Connect, LeeAnn led a team of local cosmetologists, which performed free haircuts & shaves to the homeless to boost self-confidence and help increase their employment chances. In 2019, LeeAnn, while a board member at her local Head Start, led the donation drive, which helped families affected by the Nebraska floods.
As a wife and mother, LeeAnn’s proudest accomplishment is her family. Her husband and four children keep her life interesting, and seeing her children grow and succeed over time, has provided one of life’s greatest privileges.
LeeAnn holds an Associates in Human Services & an Associates in Psychology from Central Community College in Grand Island, Nebraska. She attended Joseph’s College of Cosmetology and graduated with full honors.
“In the words of Oscar Wilde, ‘you can never be overdressed or overeducated.’ Wise words to live by because people should never stop learning. One should also want to present one’s best-self each & every day and to be better; one must work to be better.”
