When and how did you get your start in the industry?
I went to cosmetology school in 2007 at Graham Webb International Academy of Hair. I started working at The Hair Company in 2009 right after I graduated cosmetology school.
Why did you choose the beauty industry? Saying “I’ve always wanted to be a hairstylist” is kind of cliche but it’s the truth! I’ve always been a creative person. Whether it was through art, dance, hair, or make up. I just knew becoming a hair stylist was exactly what I wanted to do from a very young age.

We’re a family! Who else can say they work along side their best friends everyday?! We have such a great team!
