I grew up in Carolina, RI and graduated from the Empire Beauty School with a Cosmetology degree & license as a CND Certified Professional. After graduating from Empire, I apprenticed as a hairdresser for 6 months. During that time I realized that I love doing nails. In 2018 I completed the Akzentz Gel Nail Art Class. I enjoy delivering a guest experience that is special and memorable, and try hard to make every Uptown client feel at home. I can’t live without Melly, my 14 year old kitty. Other must haves are glitter and flip flops! Others may be surprised to learn that I love collecting vinyl records and listening to them on my classic record player.
