I just joined AVEDA in August 2016 and have been doing hair for eleven years. I love making my guests feel great about themselves after leaving my chair! “Do what you love, love what you do!”
Xennon Academy 2015
Executing a customized look that all my guests can re create at home is my #1 priority. In my off time, I love spending time with my fiance and our son. Obsessed with doughnuts and weiner dogs.
As a designer, I strive to enhance the beauty one already has! As a kid, I felt like a princess leaving the salon and I want my guests to have the same feeling and experience!
I have been practicing esthetics since 2016 and along the way found a passion for using safe, all natural products that bring out the natural beauty and well being of my guests. I love hearing guests unique stories and customizing treatments to their exact needs. Aside from my professional life, I love spending time with my family, witty humor and handcrafted cocktails!
