I can’t imagine a life that doesn’t include styling hair. At age 16 I was recruited to work in a Rhode Island salon and never looked back. I was lucky to have a mentor that trained me on hair cutting, hair coloring and hair highlighting techniques. She also advised me on the importance of working as a team in a professional salon setting. I’m focused on continuing education and take pride in staying on top of the latest techniques, as well as knowing the best hair care lines for my clients, many of whom have been with me for over 12 years! In 2017 I’ve studied Balayage with L’Oreal Professionnel in NYC, and traveled to Boston to earn my certification as a Surface Core Cutting Certified Specialist. When I return from these continuing education technical classes, I enjoy my role as a mentor teaching these new techniques to members of the Uptown staff. What I know for sure is that not one person has the same head of hair as the next, which means I’m never bored in my work! I love spending my days at Uptown Salon, it’s a terrific team of talented people and our clientele is the best! At the end of the day, there’s nothing I love more than heading home to my husband, children and two rambunctious dogs.
