Hairdressing has been my goal and passion from a very young age, and it feeds my soul to know my guests have the hair goals they’ve wanted forever.

Flip your hair and walk these streets as the most beautiful version of yourself! Bonus points if you wanna talk about Lady Gaga & Gossip Girl. Single dog dad of one.

Xennon Academy – 2015,  Aveda Certified Stylist

Executing a customized look that all my guests can recreate at home, is my #1 priority. I want you to feel and look like your best self.

I love staying on top of my education and consistently challenge myself behind the chair. Outside of the salon, I love spending time with my husband & our young son. We have a miniature dachshund, Charlee (who I might be obsessed with)

Fun facts about me: My favorite food group is baked goods and my husband and I eloped on a mountain

I specialize in hand painting and lived in colors. I am here to give you a natural look with either using a balayage technique or foils!

Outside the salon you’ll find me being your #1 plant mom and auntie. I enjoy the simple things in life and good conversation.
