I grew up as a bit of a nomad. Originally from Pennsylvania, I lived there throughout my childhood. When I was eight years old my family moved to Ohio and we lived there until I was 16. We then moved to Irmo. It was my junior year in high school, and a time when I was making tons of friends. Then, when I was 18, right after graduating high school, my family and I moved again, this time to Louisiana. I was there for 2 years before I decided that Columbia was home. I moved back by myself and have vowed not to move again for a long, long time. I love it here for so many reasons. My favorite part is its central location and how you can go to so many places on a day trip. The beach, the mountains, Charlotte, Charleston, Savannah, are all so close.

I started in the hair industry in 2017. I attended cosmetology school in my high school here right in Irmo. I didn't have my heart set on any one kind of hair and was open to all that the beauty industry had to offer. I knew I liked the esthetics field and even considered becoming proficient in facials. It wasn't until I did my first balayage that I discovered my true passion- transformative coloring. When I finish a style with a beautiful blow-dry and reveal a brand new look, it feels like opening a gift on Christmas morning. I love how I can make my clients feel when they see their new look for the first time.

When I'm not working, I love to explore. I'm adventurous and I love to travel. I've been to New Orleans, The Bahamas, and I daydream of going to Hawaii and every tropical corner of the globe. My ideal vacation is anywhere warm with a beach, sun shining down on me, and a fruity cocktail in my hand. Road trips are my fave. I love discovering new places and stopping at every little restaurant along the way. Meeting new people, trying new foods, I live for it. I do consider myself to be a bit of a foodie. If I had to choose one favorite food, it would be charcuterie board. I love the assortment and variety you can get all in just one plate.

Things I love:

  • Netflix bingeing

  • charcuterie boards

  • road tripping

  • Amazon 2 day shipping

  • amazing hair transformations
