At a very young age - sporting crooked bangs (with school pictures to prove it) and carrying a purse full of makeup - I always knew I wanted to be a stylist. Growing up I became the "unofficial stylist" for my girlfriends and when prom season rolled around (my favorite!) I'd pack up my beauty bag and spend the weekend beautifying my bestie and honing my skills.
My adventure in hair continued right after high school when I moved to Minnesota from South Dakota and attended The Model College of Hair Design in St. Cloud. After graduating (2006) I packed my bags once again and moved to Minneapolis to pursue my dream of becoming a stylist in the Twin Cities.
I value education immensely and right after getting settled in to my first job as a stylist, I pursued and received a Marketing degree from the University of Northwestern. I have also completed numerous continuing education classes, such as precision cutting and multi-dimensional coloring, and believe strongly in staying advanced with my skills and techniques.
My adventure kept unfolding and in 2014 I found myself with a new opportunity of becoming my own boss. Working as an Independent Stylist I've found an even deeper understanding of the beauty industry and began forming long-lasting relationships with my clients.
One of my favorite parts of the adventure was discovering Eufora hair color and products. Their dedication to the stylist community along with their commitment to the environment are what drew me into the Eufora family and I am currently in training to become a certified Eufora Color Educator.
I recently got the entrepreneurial bug, took a leap of faith and moved into a rental space at Salon Concepts in Uptown Minneapolis. This move allows me the freedom to further advance my career and to provide existing clients, as well as new clients, the very best I have to give.
