I grew up in Westerly, RI, and was drawn to working in the salon industry because I enjoy a job that makes people look and 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 online 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 on how much they like my Balayage and foiling work. I love to be on-trend when it comes to color, and my best day is when a guest lets me change it up and play with the subtle tones and natural sun-kissed lightener with my free-hand hair painting. 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 in season.
Others might be curious to learn that I have skydived in Hawaii! 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 styles and looks!
