Victoria Parrish, Owner of Lashtastic Lounge, 3rd year Committee Member

Lashtastic Lounge began from a desire to create a space for women to express their feminine side fully and unapologetically. Modern day women are tasked with so much from being the center of home life to providing for their families in emotional, spiritual and often financial needs, and on top of all of that - we’re supposed to also exude femininity. 

Owner and Founder Victoria Parrish found this to be overwhelming as she navigated life as a new working mom. She took it as a personal challenge to create a space for any woman to express her femininity easily and effortlessly. Victoria herself experienced that transformation through investing in self care and fell in love with how lash and skin treatments not only helped her confidence in her physical beauty - but also how it transformed how feminine she felt internally.

The mission of Lashtastic Lounge is simple - we bring the inner beauty that each woman who walks through the Lashtastic doors embodies to their own awareness. Each woman is unique in how her beauty is expressed, and the results driven services provided here at Lashtastic Lounge allow each and every single woman to UNLEASH her own unique femininity.

Alexis Plunkett, Pierce-Jefferson Funeral Home, 1st year Committee Member

Through a series of life events, Alexis found herself working at Pierce-Jefferson Funeral and Cremation Services in April of 2021. Initially hired as a part-time crematory operator, she discovered a passion for serving families in their time of need. This career calling translated into her pursuing schooling and licensure for funeral service by the fall of that same year. Having completed mortuary school and state licensure requirements, Alexis is honored to serve families in the Kernersville community by demonstrating care and compassion in their most dire hour of need.

As a funeral service professional, Alexis meets with families on an at-need basis to nurture, support, and be a knowledgeable presence to the family throughout the funeral planning journey. Her highest priority is to make what is already such a difficult process, just a little bit easier. Nothing brings as much pleasure to Alexis as to have a family express their satisfaction in the proper memorialization of their loved one.
