WARNER ROBINS: Cochran native, Morgan (Knight) Strange has experienced a lot of firsts lately – and for a twin, that is something rare – as most ‘firsts’ are shared.
Morgan recently got married. And then of course, there is the pandemic that has fast and furiously spread all over the world, and even has reached lives and caused the loss of lives in middle Georgia.
Though Morgan and her husband are taking caution as preventative steps to stay healthy and keep others around them safe, she is also taking the opportunity to learn more and improve on her skills. .
A master cosmetologist at Salon Fusion in Houston County, Morgan said, “During this time at home, I have really focused on what I can do to improve my business. I’ve watched so many videos on hair education, and I became certified in a few different product lines.”
She said, “God has shown me so many things not just about my job, but also life. I can’t wait to be reunited with my amazing church family and see my Ignition (middle school ministry) students.”
“Being home has been amazing, my husband and I have cooked meals together, we have done a few projects around the house, and just enjoyed spending time together.”
Morgan added, “I am definitely ready to get back to work. I miss my clients and work family so much.”
She said, “I started off in the respiratory therapy program, and I just wasn’t happy. The beauty industry always intrigued me. Helping people to make them feel beautiful is the favorite part of my job.”
“During Covid-19, I have received no help concerning my income from the government,” Morgan said, and added, “But my sweet clients buying products, purchasing gift cards, participating in raffles, and even donating has helped keep me afloat. I am so blessed.”
Morgan will return to work May 14. “In the salon, we have implemented many new ‘rules’ during this time. Stylists and clients will be required to wear masks.”
She explained further, “Everyone will wait in their car until I text them to come in … to limit people in the waiting area. Between each client the room will be cleaned and disinfected.”
“I will do everything I can to keep my clients, my coworkers and myself safe,” Morgan commented.
She encouraged people to be cautious, but most importantly trust God.
Morgan concluded, “Though this time right now is uncertain and seems to keep changing, I will put my faith in God, for He is forever constant.”
