Licensed Cosmetologist | Certified Makeup Artist | Hair Stylist
I feel so fortunate to do the work that I love & share my passion for beauty & lighting up that inner confidence in the people around me. My big secret is that I don't believe anyone needs makeup, but it sure is fun, & I love that a little lipstick can make a big difference in how I feel some days - I hope it has the same uplifting effect on you too!
When I'm not serving clients, you can find me snuggling up to my sweetheart, Keith, or my pound puppies, Spike & Ollie.
Thanks for stopping by; I'm really looking forward to getting to know you!
