Becoming a hairstylist had been a goal and passion of mine since I was in high school. I was working as a receptionist at the salon my sister worked at as a stylist. She totally mesmerized me by creating beautiful living works of art. I wanted so much to do that!! I always wanted to be like her growing up but this was something more, something that I really thought I’d be good at. Now my daughter is following in my footsteps and is a  hairstylist and my assistant. My grandpa was a barber too, so it must be in the genes!

In high school my sister taught me how to foil and gave me tips on haircutting. She saw how my hair (then straight hair) was a little wavy when wet so she permed it and taught me how to style it curly. I loved it!!



Over the years I had taught many friends, family and neighbors about their curls and  how to style their curly hair. After going through the DevaCurl training I realize now that this is my gift! I am a curl whisperer! A curl doctor! A curlologist! This IS my calling! I need to share it with the world!

Confession: I’m a total hair nerd! The science and chemistry of hair totally intrigues me. I love to educate my clients on the “why” and “how” and I am constantly taking new classes.

I also have a knack for is listening and understanding. Not only with what people say but with what they don’t say and what they really mean. Since I strive to see someone’s vision, this makes me great at working with brides.  I also absolutely adore working weddings and being a part of the special day. 

So if you are looking for a perfectionist stylist to take the time to really get your vision and do it right, and make you a living masterpiece, I’m your girl!
