From a young age, I knew that I wanted to be a hair and makeup artist. I’ve been blessed to have been able to do what I love since 2001 and, to make it my career. I started by going to cosmetology school in high school. I got a job as an assistant my last year before getting my license. I worked for Carol Martin Salon and Spa (Tallmadge, OH) for nine years with a few detours along the way. My passion has took me to The Beauty Lounge (Akron, OH), Amici’s Salon and Spa (Orlando, Fl), and Blue Velvet Salon (Los Angeles, CA).
Along the way I’ve picked up many tips and techniques that have molded me as a stylist. While in Orlando, I went to Joe Blasco makeup school to learn professional makeup artistry and special prosthetics. Along the way, I’ve done hair and makeup for television personalities and commercial shoots. After making my way back to Ohio, I made the move to Beauty Lounge East in early 2013, and bought the salon the following January. I couldn’t be happier to have a place to call my own. It’s even better that I get to share it with a group of highly talented professionals! I absolutely love being able to make people look and feel beautiful it is, above all else, the most important thing to me.
