Ilisa was first licensed in California as a Nail Technician. She moved back to Chicago to be with family and friends while maintaining her Illinois license and certification. Ilisa completed her professional training at the Chicago School of Massage Therapy. She and her sister launched Green’s Nails and Massage which thrived for over 25 years in the Chicago Theather District.
