I attended Cosmetology school 13 years ago, and have been actively expanding my education ever since. I have taken classes in Minneapolis, Red Wing, and Chicago, and I am a member of varying cosmetology education organizations. I truly enjoy cutting and coloring, but my first love is “total package” styling.
I have been playing with hair and makeup since I was old enough to spend my allowance on Wet ‘n Wild nail polish at the drugstore. I started doing theater at the age of 9, so stage makeup and wild hair were my first calling. By the time I got to high school, I was doing prom hair and haircuts for my friends. On top of experience working with other people, I have quite the head of hair, so my life has been non-stop practice!
I believe that everyone has a “something”; their eyes, their smile, that little dimple in their chin that is just like Grandpa Hal’s. A "something" that, when featured, can take the observers breath away. That something is what makes you, you. My job is to make that something shine, while teaching you the skills you need to be able to make it shine, at home.
A few random things you may not know about me... I was the lead singer in a band. I have a sweet little boy, and two beautiful baby girls. I love to craft, and try new projects all the time. I am a total night owl. When I was in high school I got to reinvent myself the two times I moved. I was a 3 sport athlete at my first school, a speech and theater kid at my second school, and I graduated from an Arts High School with an emphasis in Theater! I also have a Masters Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, and love to help people improve their lives through counseling.
