I first began styling hair in the San Francisco Bay Area. After graduating cosmetology school, I trained under master stylists in San Francisco developing my technical skills, & creative artistry for 3 years. I then moved up to Portland, and began styling hair on my own exclusively at Aveda salons in the Portland metro area. After working in salons for 8 years, in order to have more flexibility (after having my second baby boy) I decided to leave the salon. I began working in my home salon, and on location for weddings.
After working weddings exclusively for a few years, I founded the Portland Makeup & Hair team in 2012. We are an award winning team of incredibly skilled & personable artists. I'm so proud to be able to say that the company continues to win awards, be featured in several magazines, grow & thrive every year.
I continue my education attending top hair classes, shows, & conventions each year. I also enjoy working on commercial, editorial, and a variety of projects. Some of my most recent clients include Intel, Animal Planet, and senator Gabby Giffords.
I have been a professional cosmetologist for over 20 years, and absolutely love working in the wedding industry. I love what I do, and love that I often get to work with some really amazing artists & friends!
