I started in this business about 15 years ago after beauty school as a manicurist, but eventually felt limited in that field. From there I went on to my first hair salon and began taking specialized classes. I’ve had extensive training with Vidal Sassoon. I’m a certified hair colorist with Toni and Guy. I’ve taken the Eufora academy for foundations, structures and expressions and I’ve taken classes at Vickie Lavanty International for advanced hair design to name just a few. In 2005 I sold my home in Central California and moved to the Temecula Valley and I am happy to say that this has become my home.
What is your craziest story from working backstage?
No crazy stories, but I’ve certainly heard a few.
Where do you find your inspiration?
As a stylist, I’m trained to listen to my clients and help them maximize their natural gifts. I can look at a person and talk with a person to get a good sense of what will and will not work for them. I love having a hand in something that can be so transformational for a person.
What gave you the desire to become a hairdresser?
I like people and I’ve always had a good sense of style and design. Working with people as a hairdresser just seemed like a natural fit and I couldn’t be happier with my career choice. I’ve always looked forward in this business and I’ve never looked back.
