In 2004, I received my education at the Jean Madeline Aveda Institute in Philadelphia, PA. The Jean Madeline Aveda Institute is nationally and internationally known among the finest institutions in the world. This education has given me the discipline and confidence to design fashion forward, wearable hair. I’ve sought after the best educators through out the country to strengthen my craft. In 2008, I studied under the direction of TLC’s “What Not to Wear” Nick Arrojo in NYC and the five time Emmy Nominated Stylist, David Evangelista. I have been accredited and nationally recognized as a “Master Colorist” giving me the additional skills to provide a truly customized style. During my career, I have traveled along the west coast as a personal stylist to corporate clients. I have had the pleasure of being an onsite wedding hair and make up coordinator. Best Sept Secret Salon welcomed me to their team in 2012 and I was given the opportunity to own it shortly after. I am honored and blessed to have a highly skilled and professional team to work with. I look forward to sharing my experiences with you and I appreciate you trusting me!
