A Little About Me: From a young age, I have always had a passion for the arts and knew I would end up in a profession in which I could express my creativity. When I started working at V&A as a shampoo assistant, I soon realized that doing hair would be the perfect creative outlet for me to utilize my skills and imagination, while enjoying the opportunity to make people feel good about themselves on a daily basis. I take pride in my ability to give my clients a look that best suits their individual personality and lifestyle while letting my inner perfectionist shine through so the end result is everything you’d hoped for! When I’m not behind the chair, I like spending my time traveling and exploring the culinary world whether it be out and about or having fun in my own kitchen.

We have a small zoo of 2 dogs, 2 cats, and 2 bearded dragons. I love weekend trips, baking, Disney, and White Chocolate Mocha's from Starbucks.
