As a haircare professional, I see myself as an artist. Each client in my chair is a unique individual, with their own particular beauty and style to draw out. The most fulfilling part of my work is to help clients discover what they want their “look” to be through exploring their lifestyle, personal aesthetic, and natural hair color and texture.
I have 17 years experience, including continuing education with the Devacurl dry cutting method for natural curl, Davines, and Kevin Murphy. I draw my inspiration from various forms of media, the natural world, my talented fellow stylists, and the rich variety of people-watching in the world of Portland, Oregon.
In my life outside the salon I am the mother of two children with a large extended family. I love the outdoors, yoga, community college classes (when life allows), travel, good food, and that never ending challenge of modern life - trying to keep my pace as slow as possible.
