I have been in the industry for over 30 years. I started my career with Gene Juarez, while I was a senior in high school. I trained at the academy and went on to specialize in both cutting and coloring.
I have also trained with Oribe, Bumble and Bumble, Wella, Goldwell , Tigi, Jamison Shaw, etc. I feel that continuing education is very important to staying current and on trend. I feel that you can learn so much from every person you meet. I never want to stop learning.
My love for this business is not only making people look good, but feeling good when they walk out of the salon doors. My favorite quote from Maya Angelou, “ I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel”. That is my motto to live by. And I want everyone I meet to feel that way.
