I knew I wanted to be a hairstylist when I was in the 6th grade. I started my family early in life but with the love and support of my children and parents, I achieved my goal. Over the years, I've had the opportunity to work with and gain knowledge from some amazing stylists. But the best part of this career is helping clients realize their potential and transforming them into the beautiful individual she is meant to be. I look forward to meeting you.
