Brent Golden


Hi! My name is Brent Golden, and I’m the founder of the Davines Professional Academy here in Lincoln, NE. After growing up in Lincoln and graduating from the University of Nebraska, Lincoln, I began my career in beauty sales eventually becoming the V.P. of Sales for Paul Mitchell, where I spent 23 years of my career. I founded the Davines Professional Academy of Beauty and Business in 2013 under its original name Paul Mitchell The School, Lincoln. My goal is to use my industry background and expertise to provide unique insights about the beauty industry to every student that walks through our door and help them build the best careers possible for themselves!
Kelly Rendel-Wilmer

Co-Director / Financial Aid

Bonjour! My name is Kelly and I am the Financial Aid Leader at Davines Professional Academy of Beauty and Business.  I have been in the financial aid world for almost 11 years, and I love helping students; prospective and current, with the financial aid process and easing their worries about paying for school.  Fun fact about me: I’m originally from Ontario, Canada but I have lived in Lincoln for the past 18 years.  While I don’t sound Canadian anymore, I can always pull out an “oot or aboot” for a laugh!

I’ve been doing hair since 1998, and owned my own shop for 12 years.  I’ve been a cosmetology instructor since 2012 and I have both my cosmetology and barber licenses.  I love teaching the basics and doing the state board testing.  My favorite part about teaching is when the students have lightbulb moments 😉
