I have always had a passion for fashion, hair and make-up, and I love learning new techniques and staying current with trends. I have more than 17 years' salon experience and, for many of my clients, I am a secret weapon. Because I am fascinated by the science and behavior of hair, I can offer expert guidance when you're choosing a new style. I see my relationships with clients as partnerships: We work together to achieve your desired look while taking your hair type, physical features, daily routine and, yes, budget into consideration. I take pride in empowering my clients through education, and I produce free resources on a variety of topics that you'll find on Instagram and Facebook.


I specialize in curly and wavy hair and earned my DevaCurl certification on-site in New York City in 2018. I have also taken various online courses for cutting, coloring and styling curly hair from curly hair educators Evan Joseph, Krista Leavitt, Chrissy Collins, Cut it Kinky, Jessica Fitzpatrick and Innersense Organic Beauty.


Styling your hair is more than just a job for me. I love my work and getting to know my clients. Utilizing my knowledge and skills to help you feel confident and attractive is why I choose to spend my time behind the chair.  For me, it is a joyful and rewarding experience, and for my clients, it can change their world.
