I started my career as a stylist in the Bay Area town of Los Altos. I thrive on teaming up with my clients to create a style that they love and that works with their hair texture and face shape. Choosing a hair color that compliments your skin tone can make you glow! I think finding a look that fits into your lifestyle and that you can manage at home is just as important as how it looks in the salon. I also enjoy working with my clients for those occasions that deserve a special look; be it a wedding or a special night out. I'm proud to be the owner of Echelon Salon, and proud that Echelon’s clients have chosen Echelon as the Best Salon in Folsom numerous times in every media reader’s poll in the area.*Folsom El Dorado Hills Telegraph Best Hair Stylist 2001 2002 2003 2004 2005

I enjoy the beauty industry because I get the opportunity to make people feel their very best every day. I believe that beauty embraces all shapes, sizes, and colors. I started my career nearly a decade ago in Orange County, CA. Upon graduating from the Paul Mitchell Academy, I sought out a salon that gave me the opportunity for two more years of education by Vidal Sassoon educated stylists. I have since become an educator for Paul Mitchell, and I’m a DevaCurl Certified Stylist. I am also a Certified Framesi Colorist. I have fallen in love with this area and feel fortunate to have made my home at Echelon Salon. I believe in collaborating with my clients: finding out what their needs and desires are and using that to create their special look with their best interests in mind.
I have been doing hair since 2014, and I love working with all types of hair. My specialty is creating new looks with color and balayage technique for a dramatic change or a more natural look. I am always staying current with new trends and styles by taking professional development classes in and outside of the salon. My goal is to have every client of mine leave my chair happy and confident with their hair style and with the products they need to maintain it.
I am a homegrown artist with a love for color, form, and chemistry. I am so lucky that my profession allows me to explore these things every day and channel my creative nature in a way that makes people feel good. Hands down, the best part of my job is seeing the smile on a person’s face after sitting in my chair. I love the variety I get to work with, be it natural-but-better balayage looks, exciting creative color, or gorgeous bridal and special occasion styles both vintage and modern. I also love getting to know my clients as individuals, and working to create looks uniquely tailored just for them.
