For as long as I can remember, I've been fascinated by hair---the textures, colors and the different things it could do. When I was about five, my mom noticed my attraction to hair and bought me a doll so I could experiment on her. Unfortunately, I was afraid of the doll, so I decided to practice on my own. Ended up cutting off one of my own little plaits. HA! As I got older, I became a "kitchen beautician" for several of my friends and family. I noticed how having beautiful, healthy hair positively impacted women's self-esteem and it eventually led me to cosmetology school.
Now, I'm a licensed cosmetologist, who's driven to inspire, enlighten and encourage women by sharing my knowledge of healthy hair care practices, clean(er) beauty, and wellness across my social media platforms. As an independent hairstylist and educator, some of my artistry has been featured in commercials, campaigns, on billboards, and in magazines.
Attending the Aveda Institute, where I earned my cosmetology license, sparked a greater passion for, not just hair care and styling, but also environmental responsibility. Surprisingly greater than what it was! From the hair and beauty products that I use and the (mostly) plant-based meals I prepare, to the clean + green household items that sustain my family, I share a diverse body of beauty, wellness, and lifestyle content with my audience. My hope is that they're encouraged to embrace an ethical lifestyle as much as possible and be their highest and best selves.
My life's work and journey are ever evolving, thanks to solid relationships, valuable lessons, losses, gains and the desire to serve humanity with my God-given gifts.
