Growing up as a Navy “brat” with 3 sisters, I was constantly exposed to the world of hair and makeup. Following my love of art, theater and fashion, a career in the hair industry seemed like a perfect fit.
I completed my education after attending the Gene Juarez Academy and Paul Mitchell NW Hair Academy in 1992. Upon receiving my Cosmetology License I apprenticed under noted stylist Antonina Barbagallo for 2 years. I went on to work for 4 high profile Salons in the Seattle and Whidbey Island area where I was voted Most Creative Hairstylist by South Whidbey Record.
In 2004, I opened my own salon, and in 2006 expanded to our current location in Downtown Freeland.
I am a firm believer in advanced education and have attended countless seminars and classes to stay up to date on the latest techniques and hair styles, most recently graduating from Bumble & Bumble's Immersion courses in New York.
My goal has always been to create a team concept salon with a comfortable relaxed environment where clients come first and your satisfaction is always guaranteed.
Since 1993 I have been working as a hairdresser and have loved every phase of my journey thus far. I have a passion for people and the art of communication, and find great satisfaction in making people feel good about themselves.
I have been fortunate enough to receive extensive training in the Pivot Point method of haircutting, advanced styling, and advanced training in color and chemical work. Communication emerged early on as an important factor in my career. After 4,000 hours of study and demonstration, I earned my Journeyman card from the Washington State Apprenticeship Council in Cosmetology. I then taught classes in professional skills and salon management/operations for this program.
I moved from Seattle to Whidbey Island in 2004. Here at the Color Box Salon, I enjoy all aspects of my job, including the role of Network Educator for Bumble and Bumble. I feel fortunate to have had such an opportunity made available to me, and look forward to working within our community for years to come.
