My passion for the beauty industry stemmed from the time I was a little girl. From braiding/stylng my barbie's hair, to cutting my own and playing with color formulation since I was 11. I studied at the Aveda Institute Minneapolis in 2004 and was later recruited by Van Michael salons in Atlanta, Ga. While there, advanced education in color and styling became a fast love of mine. I was able to thrive and cultivate art through hair in ways I never knew possible. The minute details of color placement, learning to customize enhancement of client's features and the flawless perfection of designing a bride's dream style into a reality.

Upon returning to Minnesota, I was able to further my skills through education and working side by side with some of the best in the industry in the top salons of the twin cities. Through commitment and dedication I've learned to hone my skills with precision in color, cutting, weddings/ specialty styling, and makeup. There is nothing I love more than working one on one with clients down to the last detail for what best fits their needs! With 13 years specializing in the beauty industry combined with continuing education and staying current on trend, the possiblilties become endless opportunites. I look forward to meeting you and helping tailor your possiblities into realites!
