Creative, innovative, classic passionate, dedicated and caring…these are the words I would describe my 27 years as a Designer and Education Director at Ame.

My passion for doing hair started at a very young as a model for some of the greatest industry leaders. I have always been into art. Michelangelo and Salvador Dale opened up my creative skills in so many ways. I have studied with many major hair companies, but I especially admire Sam Villa. I admire him not only for his unbelievable cutting skills but also for his never-ending passion for the hair industry. I believe you can never stop learning and that will always keep you passionate.

Last but not least, my clients inspire me every day to reach new creative goals and to make them see themselves beautiful.

I use my creative skills in design and color to create individual new looks. I am a specialist in Keratin Smoothing Treatments.

Know when you first come to see me, I will always believe in the consultation for it is the most important service I give you for communication is key to any great hairstyle or can I say in life?

I also love mentoring our upcoming Ame Stylists on not just doing great hair but how to maintain success as a stylist in this industry. It makes me proud every day.

“Never give up!”
