My profession is my passion. I had the privilege of graduating from a vocational high school where I learned the art of hair, and I was licensed as a Cosmetologist within one month of graduation.  I have been licensed since 2001, but I’ve worked behind the chair since 1999. 

I take pride in staying on top of the latest techniques, trends, and haircare. I have focused my continuing education on color, highlighting techniques, and advanced haircutting. I studied balayage in 2018 at the L’Oreal Academy in New York City, and became the first hairstylist in Rhode Island to earn the balayage certificate. I also enjoy educating myself on all of the product lines that we carry here at Uptown. I love seeing how hair responds to different products based on the season and the individual needs of each style and texture. 

Uptown allows me to work on the cutting edge of new techniques and products which I love! I enjoy spending my days here, where I’m part of a terrific team of talented people, and my clients are the best! Your hair color and style is an important part of your daily life, and having your best hair contributes to happiness and quality of life. I consider it a privilege to be part of this process (no pun intended!)
