I'm a third generation stylist and graduated from Wilmington Academy of Hair Design at nineteen. My main interest at that time was studying color, hair texture and how the prisms reflect light. With this enhanced knowledge, I opened my first salon at twenty-three (Masquerades Hair Design) in Hockessin, DE where I mentored a staff of ten for thirteen years. Although I took great pride in my staff, I knew it was important to follow my aspirations. In the spring of 2001, upon relocating to D.C., I was fortunate enough to start collaborating with Illusions Hair Salon while living at Pentagon Row. During this time, I had the privilege of getting to know Callista Gingrich, Miss Collin Powell, Icy Jenkins and also had the opportunity to style hair for two presidential inaugurations. I've won the Philadelphia Sophisticate Lady competition and also became certified as a Colorist with Schwarzkopf! Since arriving in Raleigh, I've worked in North Hills and opened my first studio within two years. Personally, some of my greatest achievements have been working on set, doing hair for charity and becoming certified with The Brazilian Blow-Out Treatment. Upon reflection, I've been blessed by living closer to my family, friends and working with great clients over the past eleven years.
