Greeting Members and Staff. My name is Shelley Ann Ponce. The image I posted is my final project in my Photography class during my studies towards my associates degree in 2008. 

I love all of the wonderful options and opportunities offered by the Hat Academy and look forward in interacting with both members and the wonderful staff. 

 Currently, I just started my Millinery inspired small hat business. I am in the last stages of designing my web site and will post the URL as soon as it is complete.

I consider myself a self taught Milliner with a strong will  and passion to continue advancing  my skills and experience. I am experienced with commissioned projects and love designing  one of a kind hats,  bridal parties, and special occasion pieces.   Professionally, I am a Fashion Designer/Graphic Artist. By choice I am following my long loved passion and dream, hat designing.

Long term goals and plans are becoming a successful Milliner  to the stars. Who doesn't aim high? 

My short term goals and aspirations are many. One day I will design a hat for a major motion picture or for a run in the theater.  

After a 27 year career in the beauty industry, as a color specialist, and going back to school in my later years, I have finally found my Niche. Through it all I learned all dreams can become reality if you really want them to. Working hard daily is key for a good start. 
Thank you for reading my intro & "Headlines". I look forward in communicating with you soon.
