Stylist / Owner
The year I started my profession: 1993
Hair Solutions start date: April 2002
What made me interested in the beauty business was: In high school I picked up a shears in 10th grade and cutting hair came naturally to me. I have always been artistic and enjoyed serving others.
What I love most about my work: Serving others with greatest intent. Making people happy! Our clients and our staff! My compassion drives me to help those in need.
For many years I grew an amazing clientele, today I grow beauty professionals and show them a successful pathway to their beloved profession. Today I have even more passion for our beautiful profession than ever!
Today I love to teach all aspects of hair services to our new talent. Our company is very involved in helping breast cancer survivors on their personal journey.
What excites/motivate me about my work is:

I am also ADDICTED to the new Redken Control Addict 28 Hair Spray with 24-hr hold without the stiffness!
The three words that others use to describe me are:
