I have worked in the beauty industry for over 25 years, a senior cosmetologist for 16 years, and was a salon owner for 15 years, too!

Paul Mitchell Graduate?:
No I am not.

My Mentor, or the person who has inspired me is…
My first student, my husband. He has been my inspiration for over 25 years. When I was ready to give up on my career goals, he encouraged me to reach for the sky. We worked side by side to make our dreams a reality.

To me living beautifully is…
Never giving up doing what you love.

Something you don’t know about me….
I’m adventurous! I love jet skiing and zip lining.

When I am not working, I am…
Spending quality time with my husband and two sons or creating magic at my salon

My appointment book, business cards, and a word of encouragement.
