I have been in the industry for over 15 years. I started as a front desk coordinator and would style my friends hair on my lunch breaks. I always loved to braid and style my hair and my friends when I was in high school. I took as many classes as I could on styling and loved re-creating styles I saw in magazines on my coworkers. I also loved helping stylists who were more experienced learn new braiding techniques and always had a passion for sharing my knowledge.

Watching Real Housewives and pretty much any Bravo reality show.
