What inspires/motivates me in the industry:
Education. I think the minute you stop learning it’s all over. Not only can I learn from classes and teaching but also from my fellow employees. I take inspiration and motivation from my surroundings and my team.
What I am happiest doing:
Blow drying and cutting. I tend to zen out an then it’s just the best place to be.
Additional industry involvement:
UNITE Educator. I have opened 3 salons in my career and trained over 12 stylist/apprentices. Education is my whole life. An I love for the journey.
What I love most about The Parlour:
The Crew and the family mentality. We are several different shops but when we are all together it’s one big family. Not to mention the education is 2nd to none.
What else you should know about me:
I talk to myself a lot while working or just start singing. Don’t know when it started but it’s a thing.
