In 1985, I obtained my Cosmetology license from Horst & Friends, which later became the Aveda Institute. Following my education, I furthered my studies in color theory and business development. As part of my career journey, I served as an in-salon Hair Color Educator, earning certifications in weft and tape-in hair extensions. I also pursued advanced education focused on curly hair. Interestingly, my path into this industry was sparked by a disappointing bang trim experience, This incident inspired me to pursue a career where I could provide better experiences for clients. When I'm not working in the salon, I find joy in activities like bike riding and spending time in the kitchen, cooking. Additionally, I have a passion for painting and drawing, and I prioritize my fitness through workouts and weight training. In fact, I am a certified personal trainer. However, my greatest inspiration comes from my daughter. Her confidence, independence, passion, drive, and positive outlook on life constantly motivate me to keep pushing forward.
I’m a hairstylist with a passion for my craft and a dedication to helping people look and feel their best. In 2013, I graduated from Empire Beauty School, where I laid the foundation for my career. I furthered my expertise by becoming a master colorist through Paul Mitchell, specializing in blonding techniques, child haircuts, and men's haircuts. My journey into the world of hairstyling began at a young age, driven by my innate desire to help others. Beauty has always captivated me, from cutting my dolls' hair to applying makeup on my pets. I knew deep down that this was my destiny. I want to assure clients that the inspiration pictures they come across on Instagram are indeed achievable goals. However, it's important to understand that transforming hair dreams into reality requires patience, commitment, and consistent follow-through. Outside of work, I enjoy meal prepping dinners and spending quality time with my son and our two cats. A pivotal moment for me was when my beauty school instructor emphasized the significance of education, a passion that has never waned since that day.
