When I started doing hair: 2001
When I started at The Parlour: 2002
What inspires/motivates me in the industry:
I love to see the new trends every year in hair cutting, coloring, bridal hair and make up. Learning new techniques is a fantastic way to keep myself challenged and excited about what I am doing behind the chair! Being able to create new looks and make people feel good about themselves when they leave is why I do what I do.
What I am happiest doing:
I am most happy spending time with my husband Adam and our daughter Sloan. They are the light in my life, they keep me grounded and make me strive to be the best I can be!
Additional industry involvement:
I have been a part of the education team and the wedding team since 2006. I love to watch students grasp a new technique, and/or explain how to get the desired end result. I feel in this industry, there is always something new to learn, even from a team member I work with on a daily basis. I love the bridal trends that surface each season because they are forever evolving. Vintage hair and make up is a favorite of mine because I feel it is a timeless and classic look.
What I love most about The Parlour:
There are so many things I love about The Parlour! The teamwork, the sense of family, the continued education and of course our wonderful clientele. I am so blessed to have found such a wonderful home here at The Parlour, and couldn’t ask for a more talented, kind and generous group of people to call my family. I always feel supported, challenged and appreciated for what I do every single day.
