I grew up in downtown Chicago always knowing I wanted to be a hairstylist. When I was little my mom would take me to the salon to get my hair done and I would always feel so confident and beautiful leaving my appointment. What made me want to be a hairstylist was having the ability  to make people feel better about themselves the same way my hairstylist did for me. I received my first mannequin head for christmas when I was seven years old and my passion continued to grow from there.


All through high school I worked at a high end salon in Chicago and later decided to move to Denver.  As soon as I graduated I went straight to cosmetology school and attended the Aveda Institute Denver. I graduated at the top of my class with high academic honors. Education has always been important to me and the industry is always evolving so I love attending advanced training classes all over the world in order to  keep up with the newest styles and trends.


I am a very adventurous and spontaneous person and I love to travel more than anything. One of my most memorable trips was traveling to Dusseldorf, Germany. While I was there I had an amazing opportunity to assist in teaching at the National Hair and Beauty Congress.  


I love building close relationships with each client and I value making sure everyone leaves excited and confident about their hair. To ensure this I never double book my clients and always have ample time so the appointment will never feel rushed. I really enjoy doing color corrections, balayage, blonding, extensions, smoothing treatments and working with curly hair.


I always love meeting new people so if you are ready to feel confident about your new hair, click the link below to book your appointment with me. See you soon!
