I grew up in Westerly, RI and was drawn to working in the salon industry because I enjoy a job that makes people feel beautiful. I trained at Toni & Guy and Aveda Advanced Academy. At Uptown, I have the opportunity to take in-house classes to stay on top of my skills, which is great. I gain inspiration on the Internet all the time where I follow beauty influencers on social media. Being on the Uptown team gives me the chance to work with other professionals that inspire me and share my values. Clients comment often how much they like my Balayage and foiling work. I also am always on trend when it come to color. I listen closely to how my clients describe their needs, and then make recommendations based on what I think will work best for their hair type and lifestyle. I never want a client to feel stagnant, so I’m always ready with ideas for new looks, especially during the changes of the season. Uptown clients can also count on me to incorporate the trends into their personal style. Others might be curious to learn that I went sky diving in Hawaii once! When I’m not working, I enjoy time with my husband and two boys. And on the rare night out, I’m usually with my girlfriends enjoying some wine and dishing on the latest beauty trends!
