Summit Daily/Jennifer HuffmanJulie Beck, nail technician

Like the mother of any 2-year-old, Frisco resident Julie Beck could always use another set of hands to keep up with her toddler’s antics. But when it comes to her job at First Impressions, she could always use an extra pair of hands to pamper.Surrounded by bottles of pink, red, purple and blue nail polish, Beck smiles and chats with a client as she finishes up her manicure. The client leaves beaming and relaxed with another appointment already on the calendar – the mark of a great salon experience.What do you like about your job?

“I love meeting new people – clever and interesting people. Plus the job really complements me being able to spend time with my son.”What are the job’s challenges?”Probably having enough customers and building my business, especially since I’m part time. Otherwise, it’s pretty easygoing.”

What brought you to Summit?”I wanted to come skiing. It’s my eighth season here. I drove up from Denver and looked around at all the towns. I decided I liked Frisco the best, and here I am still eight years later.””I had traveled around the world twice before making it to Frisco. It’s just so beautiful here.”What do you do when you’re not working?

“Take care of my son, of course. I cross country ski and snowmobile. I also really like organizing parties and entertaining at home. I used to bartend, so I like to bring my friends to the house now and make everyone margaritas.”What’s something people might be surprised to know about you?”I used to model bridal wear when I was 16.” – Jennifer Huffman
