Erica Allen­-McKenzie, MEd

Asst. to the President/Educator, Director of Education

Born and raised in Jamaica West Indies, Erica's parents were disciplinarians, with a strong professional and ethical philosophy that formed the solid foundation of her life.

Upon her marriage to husband Lensford McKenzie, she moved to the United States and settled in Houston, Texas, here he lived.

The United States is a place of opportunities, so Erica didn’t hesitate enrolling at North Harris Community College for studies in Corporate and Continuing Education. There she successfully completed her practicum, and graduated. An article in the Houston newspaper about Mr. Ross Briggs, the president of Champion Beauty College, prompted Erica to meet him and the CFO Jim Adams. They saw her potential and offered her a scholarship to attend Champion Beauty College and Massage School Inc. Erica is Licensed in Cosmetology, Esthetics, Nursing and Massage Therapy.


"I majored in Education in the related field under the Strict tutelage and Supervision of Mr. Ross Briggs, who became my role model, I made a conscious decision to follow his footsteps and became an Educator who will always go to the extra mile and to ensure student would have the support they need to realize their full potential."


After graduating and obtaining her state license, Erica was offered a job as an Educator at Champion Beauty College. In 2005 she was promoted to Assistant to the President.
