I love preforming color services! Everywhere from rich brows and reds, to bright sunny blondes to ashy, icy blondes and everything in-between! I am passionate about both foils and balayage. Foils allow me to be very systematic and strategic with my placement while balayage allows me to be more creative. Having the ability to use both techniques in my pocket make it so that I can offer customized color services!
I also love doing textured haircuts such as pixies and shattered layers. Being able to use all of my tools to create a look that is easier to style is so much fun!
Passion for the Industry
I love that I have the ability to make people feel better about themselves! Nothing compares to seeing the smile on someone’s face when they love their hair and feel like them! I love making my guests feel comfortable and happy!
Who Inspires Me
My coworkers inspire me more than anything! I am truly blessed to have the opportunity to work with so many amazing people. We are all constantly learning from one another while supporting each other’s growth! Working with a close supportive team has been such a wonderful experience in my career!

In my free time I love to relax with my family. I usually a bit of a home body but I do love to get out in nature and explore, especially by the water. I enjoy cooking, baking, and working on crafty projects.
