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 daughter Sloan. She the light in my life, she keeps me grounded and makes 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.
