Growing up in rural Northern Idaho, it was always my dream to become a hairstylist, and live closer to more artistic ventures. After graduating high school I moved to the Portland area and attended Mt Hood Community College’s cosmetology program, receiving my Cosmetology license and a Associates of Arts degree in Science.

 

In the last 25 year as a stylist, I have had many opportunities of a life time, these include, being involved as a member of the International Hair Color Exchange, working with  Portland’s  WNBA basketball team “Portland Fire”, training team for L’Oreal International Hair Color , Preferred Beauty advisor for the ABC show AMNW, Certification thru Business of Balayage, and many other industry training advancements.  These opportunities have all refined my art of creativity and attention to detail. While focusing on the needs of my clients I strive to achieve color and cuts that are wearable and suitable for women to recreate at home. I truly understand the need and importance of balancing work and family life while maintaining a sense of style and fashion.

 

While I am not working, my husband spend time with our son and daughter hiking, gardening,  backpacking, skiing, knitting, snowshoeing, reading,  playing with our dogs and cats. I love spending time outside enjoying the Oregon landscape .
