New to The Church Studio Team: Entrepreneur Ronnie Carlson


My name is Ronald (Ronnie) Carlson and I’m the new operations team member at The Church Studio. I am so excited to meet everyone. Most recently I was the President and Owner of Jenks Beauty College from 2017-2022. When I  took over the college, there were less than 10 students. When I retired, there were over 130 students. Prior to that, I worked for 12 years at Oklahoma’s largest non-profit career college group in numerous aspects of administration, student life, and college culture.

Ronnie Carlson is happy to be at The Church Studio.

My background includes experience in various aspects of career, vocational, and technical education, including admissions, career services, financial aid, compliance, accreditation, strategic planning, default aversion strategies, security and safety, faculty development, human resources, and institutional effectiveness.  I’m passionate about creating human connections to enrich the quality of life. The connection the LeonLifers (Leon Super-fan group) have with Leon and each other is very special and unique. I am thankful to be a part of it in any small way.


Born in Tulsa, Oklahoma: I am a lifelong Okie. My wife is named Shanice, and I have a son named Malachi. In addition to working for The Church Studio, I am a property manager of single-family homes and I sell commercial real estate on the side. I hold a master’s degree from the University of Oklahoma, Boomer!

Some of my hobbies include politics, listening to music, bicycle riding, trying new food, MMA, community events, and all things Leon Russell! I look forward to connecting with guests and helping to make The Church Studio the benchmark to which all studios are compared. The true epicenter of the Tulsa Sound is once again alive and well.
