I’m proud to express my excitement for being in my industry for 26 years and counting. I feel it is incredibly important to do what you love. As a stylist, owner and educator for Surface, I stay busy getting the most joy from seeing my guests happy everyday and watching my talented team grow. From my skills in cutting, coloring and straightening hair, to my updos, facials and teaching, my main focus is to ensure that every experience a guest has here is a great one. I’m hoping when you walk through the door of my studio you will feel this passion as well.

I specialize in the latest fashionable styling cuts, shaping and coloring. I am also knowledgeable in Matrix Opti Smooth and certified in LaBrasiliana Keratin treatments.

I am a graduate of Norwich Technical High School. I have been a hair stylist and nail technician for 6 years. I am an educator for Surface and love to be out in the world sharing my knowledge about high performance hair care that respects the earth and me as a stylist. Giving back to the tech school is very important to me. I love to go and teach the students the latest styles and updos. I also enjoy sharing my passion for nails and the proper care and maintenance required to keep them healthy and strong. My skills have grown over the past few years. I’m certified in Bioelements facials, I have honed my skills with OPI Gel polish and always stay educated on our Goldwell color line. My job isn’t just a job it’s my life and passion. I always want my guests feeling better than they did walking in!


I have been involved in the beauty industry for a little while now, but have become actively involved in it for the past 3 years. I am currently focusing on make-up, face and body waxing, and nails. So far, I have had special training in make-up application at the MUD Academy, Curls Certification from Surface, and training in the Four States of Slow Beauty from SpaRitual. My heart and passion belongs to make-up, so if you have any questions you need to ask me come on down to the studio and feel free to ask away. I plan to continue my education, learning as much as possible about the industry. What will I do next? Come get to know me and find out.

I am passionate about connecting with my clients and helping them achieve their goals on their path to wellness. At the end of the day, I find fullfillment knowing I have made a differenct in helping my clients feel better.
