I love hair, always have. My hair story began 17 years ago at The Aveda Instititute, where I pursued my passion as a stylist, artist and personal confidant. It was the best decision I've have ever made. It has given me an exciting life of creativity and friendship, with both clients and mentors.
The personal connections I have been honored to make is what makes hair the most interesting canvas an artist can work with. Like life, its forever moving and changing, making this one of the most exciting and dynamic industries.
I've studied with the best, including Vidal Sassoon, The Institute of Courage under Michael Orouke in LA, The Redken Exchange and Tony & Guy in New York, just to name a few.
Before hair, I was in corporate b2b sales in NYC selling telecommunications and executive recruiting.
I graduated from Fairfield University with my BA in American Literature and minor in Psychology.
For fun, I hit the gym hard. I love to cook in my Instant Pot and am always playing with new recipes. I am a writer and am working on stand up comedy as well as a book and blog. I am a proud mom of two great kids and two very muddy fur baby golden doodles, Cookie and Kong.
That is my hair and life story.
I cant wait to hear yours.
I have 25 years making clients look and feel beautiful from behind the chair.
I am a self proclaimed product snob and nerd.
Before choosing any product I heavily vet and test it. My number one priority is preserving and protecting the integrity of hair.
I am trained in technical cutting by Vidal Sassoon and have studied creative cuts with Toni and Guy. I am a fiercely trained barber in men's grooming with Roffler and am an Aquage hair artist in dressing and styling.
I am passionate about continuing education and am always in school studying something to keep me on my toes.
I can talk Panthers and football with the best of them, and love to cook and garden.
