I have been a nail professional for many years. I attended the Scott Lewis School of Cosmetology and after graduation immediately started to work at Ficocello’s in St Paul and Minneapolis. In my time there I became a manager and trainer in the nail department. By the time I left Ficocello’s I had risen to the rank of assistant manager for their downtown Minneapolis salon. I also have worked at Spalon Montage in Edina and as an independent in Wayzata. My passion for what I do is why I continue to enjoy coming to work every day. I love meeting new people and learning about them.
I graduated from the Aveda institute with training in Cosmetology. Shortly after completing my education I joined Bella on the Bay and studied under their master stylist. I have taken advanced courses with Moxie and have attended Atelier with Oribe in San Francisco. Here I spent time focusing on my technical skills while being inspired by some of the top stylists from all over the nation. I was drawn to this field because of the ability to change someone's state of feeling, and therefore, when I am not doing hair I am doing nails. I enjoy classic colors and being able to create looks by enhancing someone's natural look. I stay current on trends in fashion, music and lifestyle magazines, knowing we pull inspiration for our everyday lives from everything around us.
After graduating from Atelier Academy of Beauty, I joined Bella on the Bay.
I finished my Bachelor’s degree in Broadcast Communication but realized hair is what I am meant to do. I thought salon styling was a perfect blend between my passion and expertise in communication along with my lifelong love for cosmetology.
Alongside my professional education, I have also attended product styling classes including COLOR WOW, Wella classes with Sonya Dove, and a keratin complex certifications.
I enjoy performing color services including root touch-ups and highlights and nails.
I have always admired “go-getters” and people who follow their dreams and I intend to create personal connections with my clients while making everlasting experiences for them and their beauty needs.
After completing my education at Atelier Academy of Beauty along with seven years of salon experience, I joined Bella on the Bay in hopes of pursing my lifelong dream of professional cosmetology.
I have always had a passion for hair and nails, and I pursue this by helping you “treat yourself” to exquisite, beautifying experiences.
Alongside my professional training, I have continued my education by attendding multiple color and cut trainings and product knowledge seminars.
My inspiration stems from people who always strive to learn more and chase after their dreams.
I exceptionally enjoy performing extensions and highlighting services and I promise to always put my expertise and caring heart into every service I provide.
