Best part of my job:
Coaching my wonderful staff. Interacting with clients and facing daily challenges that have made me a stronger human being. Enjoying our beautiful ocean view everyday…even in the fog!
My hero is…
Anyone who can give back to the community, be it fundraising for a great cause or helping abused animals or children…being a good person.
My inspiration comes from…
The younger generation and how free they are to express themselves, as well as current music videos and Hairdresser’s Journal
If I wasn’t a Hairstylist, I would have…
made a career of dance and ballet.
