I've been in the trade for 30+ years! During those years, I took a detour in 1990 to teach elementary and middle school after receiving my B.A. degree from USF. After a few years of teaching, I had to get my hands back in hair, so I added 1-2 nights a week to my schedule... it's in my blood! After 12 years, I returned to the salon full time. Educating clients about maintaining healthy hair comes naturally. Clients, creating, cutting, and color give the salon an energy that I love. There's no better reaction than making someone look and feel better about themselves.

Being a hair industry veteran for 26 years, I've seen a lot of hair trends come and go, and I am always eager to continue my education in pursuit of those trends. There is so much new technology and better product formulations than we've had in the past. It's always exciting to learn new things and pass them on to my clients so they can get the same salon look at home. It fuels the love I have for my career because there is always something new to learn and someone new to meet.
How your hair looks is an expression of personal beauty, I take great pride in working with you to find out your lifestyle, hair type, and any personal preferences you may have, so together we can design a look uniquely for you. You may achieve this with a custom cut, dimensional color, or just a few sun-kissed highlights; the possibilities are endless. It gives me great satisfaction to assist others with their hair care needs because when you look good on the outside you can't help but feel better on the inside.

Master Colorist with Schwarzkopf International, certified with Keratin Complex, Educator, Make-up Artist
I have been in the salon industry for 20 years. I have been very blessed with the many paths my career has taken me. In my early years, I had the opportunity to train with Irving Rusk and Robert Cromeans of Paul Mitchell on advanced cutting techniques. I then decided to broaden my horizons and take advanced make-up training with TIGI. It was there where I began my bridal styling and formal work. I have always felt that education is crucial to stay current with the latest trends and fashions. In 2003 i started Studio B Salon, which is where the door opened for the Master Colorist training with Schwarzkopf International. The world of color has been my greatest endeavor. I sold the salon in 2008 and then decided to become an educator along with my salon work. I am always searching for the latest color and cutting techniques for my clients. My belief is, "There is always something to learn; growth is crucial for success!"
