I've been in The Salon Industry in Lorain county for 36 years. Through my career I worked on an Air Force Base learning advanced barbering techniques and also attended an advanced Martin Parsons Cutting School in Toronto, Canada.  I was an Instructor at Vanity Beauty School of Cosmetology,  Attended Special Occasion workshops, Certified in Keratin Smoothing Treatments and Owned an  Independent Salon for 23 years.

   My passion has always been Hair color. The Creative side and the Science behind it.  I've worked hard towards being trained and mentored to become an " American Board Certified Hair colorist" back in 2004. I was multi tested and passed into becoming one of the first 1000 in the United States and the only one in Lorain County! All ABCH members have reputations to uphold  Professional Ethics and to keep the Integrity of the hair, even if we have to decline the color service that the client really desires.

I still update my skill and knowledge with advanced training by attending courses in Los Angeles and

Portland, MN annually.

I also have certifications for teaching Pilates and YogaFit (a gentle,balance,lengthening,strengthening, chair style yoga). Soon to be offering in our Wellness Center.
