I have been in the industry for 14 years, I started in Tampa, Florida (where I am originally from). Working in salons with Schwarzkopf platform artists while getting my Bachelors of Arts from University of Tampa. A couple years after getting my degree I moved to London to pursue my Masters degree, where I focused on redesigning cosmetology books and also attending courses at the Sassoon Academy. Later I moved to North Carolina to be a Master stylist at a salon in Asheville, where I specialized in color corrections. I have advanced training with many different academies and am absolute hair nerd.
As an artist I admire anyone's individual style, I love making people feel like their true selves. The kind of hair and the art I produce is typically pretty with a little edge. From a silvery blonde razor bob to black hair with Betty page bangs, I love it all. I want to make my guests feel like they can and want to express themselves.

I always knew the beauty industry was my calling, studying Kevin Aucoin and testing every brand Longs Drugs carried before becoming an Esthetician and graduating from The San Francisco Institute of Esthetics and Cosmetology in 2007. After years of customer service in the hospitality industry, I began working at a Medical Spa in San Jose, CA where I was the only Esthetician working among all Registered Nurses and Nurse Practitioners. There I flourished in the application of chemical peels before managing a Medical Spa in Kirkland, Washington and attaining my Master Esthetician license. Once I became pregnant with my daughter, I transitioned into eyelash extensions where I performed a variety of applications of lashes for over three years. My specialty focused primarily on volume application and I continue to attend volume trainings because I believe you can never be too much of a master in any skill.
