Courtney Cope is the owner of Shero Beauty Pro Academy. “I’ve been a boss babe in the beauty industry for 25+ years,” she says. “I’ve owned a total of two businesses, work full time with clients, train students and I’m also a single mother. Permanent cosmetics is truly a life changing experience. Building confidence, and making people look and feel beautiful is so rewarding. My passion for this industry was so strong that I decided to pour my heart into it full time. I closed my old business to open a larger studio/training academy. I am a Board-Certified Artist by the American Academy of Micro-Pigmentation and also a Platinum Board Certified Trainer. I am always striving to learn more and grow; I want to be the best me I can be for my business, clients and students. My brand name Shero actually stands for a “Woman Hero.” A woman that is admired and idealized for her courage and achievements. I have met so many of these amazing women throughout my long career in the beauty industry. These women have all inspired me and my business name with their personal stories of strength and resilience. Spending time with family is very important to me. I have an 18-year-old daughter, and we do everything together; she is my world. I love snuggle time with my two cats, Ozzy and Slayer. I also enjoy gardening and attending outdoor events including art shows, performances and live music with friends.”


Dr. Lisa Norman was born and raised in Dalton, GA. Lisa’s faith and her family are most important to her. She is the wife of a financial advisor, mother of four children, and a practicing physician. She is passionate about the arts, especially piano and all forms of dance, and as a former exchange student, she has a special interest in Hispanic cultures.. A graduate of Wake Forest University and Emory School of Medicine, Lisa lives with her family in Winston-Salem. Her love for writing poetry began at an early age and has continued throughout her life. During the pandemic, Lisa began writing her “Ellie Asks” book series, which focuses on the core values of hope, love, respect, joy and gratitude. These are some of the values Lisa has discovered, both as a mother and a doctor, that matter the most. Children are growing up in a different world today, and it is more important than ever to instill a strong foundation. Lisa has also published an illustrated children’s book entitled Grief to help adults discuss the difficult topic of losing a loved one with younger children in a positive light.
