I graduated in 1996 from the National Academy of Beauty Arts, in St. Louis, with my Cosmetology and Aesthetics license. I moved to Columbia in 1997 and worked in several salons before deciding to become a small business owner and open my own salon in 2009. Being a business owner was an incredibly rewarding experience, but I realized my true passion was to be “behind the chair” full time so in 2019 I closed my salon and joined the Hair Therapy team that July.
In addition to my two+ decades of experience, I was also a Surface Hair Educator for four years. I traveled regionally training salons on cutting techniques, styling and products. I became a Core Artist with Surface and am considered an Expert with their product line and cutting techniques. Click on the Surface logo below to see one of my training videos on YouTube. As a licensed Esthetician I also do full body waxing.
