"Being a hairstylist for the past two decades has been fulfilling to say the VERY least. Since graduating from the Aveda Institute in the early nineties I have never had a dull moment. In the last twenty plus years I have been able to assist and learn from some of the top stylists in the world, including the late, great Horst Rechelbacher, founder of Aveda. I have enjoyed working behind the chair in prestigious salons, traveling and teaching in other states, working with local television personalities, and most recently, I have begun speaking and teaching at different beauty schools around Minnesota to pass on my knowledge to the next generation of stylists. In addition to this, I am the official hairstylist to Miss Minnesota and Miss Minnesota Outstanding Teen scholarship programs! This has blended my passion for hair with my passion and belief in continuing education. Ask me about it and I will entertain you with stories from the Miss America pageant, held every year in Atlantic City!

This year I have been able to find a great home for myself and my clients at The Rat's Nest. Being able to spend more time behind the chair has renewed my excitement for working one on one with my clients, or as I like to call them, my people. I love to cut hair and perform color services. My favorite part of the service is styling a clients hair. I get such fulfillment knowing I can enable a client to feel his/hers best when they walk out of the salon. My whole belief is that everyone's outsides should match their insides! My inspiration comes from just listening to my clients stories, and working with them so they can become the star of their own show. Knowing I can do that makes me excited for the next two decades of being a hairstylist!"
