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.
