MY MORNING ROUTINE WHEN NO ONE IS LOOKING Typically, I avoid routine all-together. I’m delighted by days that are free of agenda-- I’m not always the most productive, but I’m certainly happy.
MORE ABOUT ME Currently, I’m finishing my undergraduate studies in order to pursue a master’s degree in occupational therapy.
STYLIST / ADVANCED CUTTING & STYLING EDUCATOR
I LOVE BEING a hairdresser because its a craft that combines all the things that feed my soul; its a creative expression and craft that can continually be honed, the science of hair color chemistry and formulation technology, and education - continually learning and discovering how and why and sharing that knowledge with my guests and colleagues in the industry.
I FEEL BEST when I’m with my family. Im from Atlanta Georgia by way of Los Angeles and all my family is back east. We as a family make a point to spend time with each other, they always come out to Seattle for my birthday and I alway go home for the holidays and any chance we can in-between! Also, that feeling of coming home to a pristine clean home after a long adventurous vacation.
MY FAVORITE SERVICE TO GIVE are professional Botanical Repair and Nutriplenish treatments! I believe healthy hair is beautiful hair.
My MORNING ROUTINE WHEN NO ONE IS LOOKING wake up, coffee, walk Mousse (my 10+ year old border collie mix) and hopefully clean the apartment, put the dishes away, finish the laundry and then veg on the couch to some youtube or TV. If it’s a sunny day out, hiking or weekend adventures with Mousse.
I have been apart of the beauty industry since 2012. One of my favorite parts of my job is making human connections. I love building a relationship with my clients, I want them to truly feel that I have their best interest in mind when it comes to designing their new style or formulating their personalized, perfect color. Wedding or special event hair and makeup always makes for an exciting day of work! Nothing makes me happier than passing on knowledge of how to recreate certain looks at home and having a success story return to my chair. I also find great fun in teaching men the advantages of using a blow dryer! The little things truly can make a huge difference in our appearance and I believe it is my purpose to aid people in achieving their best look.
I am always looking to expand my education in this industry. Getting out of the salon for a new class feels like a field trip and I can’t wait to bring new techniques back to my guests!
When I’m not at work I love staying active at yoga, the gym or hiking in the mountains. I absolutely love spending time with my husky pup, Lyla and my boyfriend, Andrew. I am truly an adventurous spirit and am always looking forward to booking my next travel excursion.
