Michael Fonseca

Franchise Owner
I Michael Fonseca joined Tri‐State in 2002 as a sales representative in the New York City Office. I quickly
helped grow the sales department for Tri-State in the Payroll Division by aligning himself with many
associations and government agencies (NAMC = National Association of Minority Contractors, Councilman Seabrook of NYC, DOD Contracting and SBA Government Contracting). Within the first ten weeks of working for Tri-State I sold over $5,200,000 of gross annual payroll in new business. I quickly realized that I was born to be in the industry of Payroll, HR Support, Worker’s Compensation Insurance, Health / Welfare reporting and more. I decided to open my own business MGMA Corp in 2004. I wanted to help clients with Payroll processing, Workers Compensation Insurance and back office support.

Tri-State was a great company but had its limitation. By opening my own payroll company I could help
all kinds of clients with day to day payroll processing to the more complex Davis Beacon Certified payroll
reports, Health / Welfare reports and more. I tailored my business to become the back office off the clients. Any company can process a weekly payroll but the more complex payrolls and reports not processed properly can destroy a client. The successful clients are experts in their field but never imagined the complexity Government reporting can be.

Today I control over $150 million in annual gross payroll with several clients. Where I handled the
weekly, Biweekly, Semi-Monthly or Monthly submissions of payroll hours to the back end of all the
reporting to complete the payroll.

Ashley Meraz

Lash Technician

Hi my name is Ashley Meraz

I am a licensed esthetician and a two times certified lash technician. I have also been certified in eyebrow mapping and tinting. Once I graduated high school I already knew what I wanted to do. I was eager to join the beauty industry right away. Beauty has always been my passion and the feeling of making women feel confident makes me proud. One thing about me is I am a loving and patient person and a perfectionist. That’s what I bring along with my work as well. I’m super excited for this journey & can’t wait to meet you ladies!

Angelica Fonseca

Lash Technician
Hi my name is Angelica Fonseca and I’m brand new to the beauty industry and lash world. I’m very eager to apply my training and education into making women feel confident and beautiful. My favorite part of giving someone a fresh set of lashes or facial treatment is watching the excitement on my client’s face when they look in the mirror. 

Before Lumé lash, I was an employment recruiter and HR specialist for about 5 years. Although I have completely shifted careers, one thing I will take from the HR field is listening to people’s needs; and making them feel appreciated and heard.

My goal is to ensure my clients are having their expectations met, all while being educated on how to properly take care of their skin and lashes. 

“Beauty is self confidence applied directly to the face.”
