My interest in hair styling grew very organically from a young age when I began to learn how to style my own hair. At 18 I enrolled in cosmetology school and ever since then I have found this career to be so rewarding! It has been the perfect balance between my creative and technical side, and I love spending one-on-one time with each person who sits in my chair.
I was born and raised in Northern California, which is where I went to cosmetology school. Shortly after graduating, I moved to San Diego and found an amazing salon to call home for 5 wonderful years. I started off assisting our salon owner behind the chair to absorb as much knowledge from her as possible before building my own business. I was so inspired by how much I still had to learn after finishing school that I have made it my goal to never stop learning!
In my years as a stylist I have learned one of the most valuable things to know is solid communication. I truly believe the only way I can be successful is if I can fully understand my guests wants/needs so that I can deliver the results they are looking for. My second passion is teaching, so I love it when my clients ask me a lot of questions. I believe knowledge is a powerful tool, and I’m always looking for opportunities to share the knowledge I have with others.
After spending 5 years in San Diego we decided it was time to leave, and we landed here in Washington! Since the summer of 2017 I have been falling in love with the Pacific Northwest. We live in the small town of Granite Falls which was quite a transition from the busy city of San Diego. We are truly enjoying the small-town life. In the summer you can find me in my massive garden surrounded by fresh veggies, and in the winter I will most likely be baking sweet treats and praying for snow! I love the number of hikes we can find just a short drive from our front door and my goal is to hike at least once a week, year-round, rain or shine!
