About

Born in Boise, ID I grew up as the oldest of two. Early on, I developed a love of design and beauty. I started ballet at 4 and was determined that was my profession for life.  I danced in the Idaho Civic Ballet company and American Festival Ballet Company and learned my discipline at a very young age. I designed hair and make up for many performances. By the age of 13 I had already started doing my friends, neighbors, and families hair. It was at this time that I knew what I wanted to do with my life. Upon graduating from high school, I entered Boise State University majoring in marketing and accounting, with a minor in art. Upon graduating,  I started The Entertainment Book in Southern Idaho receiving 4 Top awards and was honored as the Top Account Executive in the Western U.S. I designed 6 homes and my own home was featured in the Tour of Homes in 1994. I have designed 4 salons and 3 spas, as I am always designing. Still having a passion for beauty I decided to embark on that dream in 95.  I enrolled in cosmetology school graduating with honors and quickly found work.  I worked hard at building a clientele and opened my own salon in 2000 with just 1 employee-MYSELF!  I slowly expanded and added the spa in 2005. I expanded once again in February 2008 to my biggest salon and spa. After 2 more expansions I finally decided to move to my own studio in 2016.  The most important lesson I learned was the importance of pushing the envelope and not being afraid to take risks. My technique has continued to evolve to the present day and I am in a very happy place in my career.

I am currently a professional, working from my Salon and Spa studio in Boise, Idaho. After many years in the spa and salon business, I went back to my roots and moved to my own private studio.  I have over 25 years experience with hair, beauty, nails, makeup and my specialty extensions. I enjoy meeting other professionals and following the latest trends as well as making my own. I enjoy staying educated in my field to the highest level possible. Although I am highly sought after, I am always open to new projects and ideas. No job is too big or too small. Call me today at (208)336-8020
