Let's get real for a moment. A few years ago a crazy thing happened: a car ran me over. No really, while I was walking on a snowy night it came up from behind; the driver was blinded, he didn't defrost. What does this have to do with "the good life" in a salon? Well ... everything!

     During surgeries and physical therapy I realized anew that I was lucky to be here and dreams matter. I went back to school to fulfill my long held wish to be a Cosmetologist. This time was rich with lessons on many levels.

     Now my goal is to honor YOU so that your well being shines! I love doing color, finding the dimension, banishing grey, creating updos, braids, and individualized cuts which respect anything from pixies to long layers. I am a Borboleta Insider and have been dual certified in Volume and Classic Eyelash Extensions.

     What a life I've had before this version 2.0! I fell for fashion while styling  brides at a high end bridal boutique. My eye for color, presentation and balance was developed in photography, graphic design, and years on air as a radio and TV personality. It all plays into today

     My hours are Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.  which works great as a single mom.  I am available outside of these times by request, please contact me. Your beauty goals lift up me and my amazing boy--who is a gifted young soccer player on an Arsenal State Travel Team. When you book me at my home salon, it means the world! You will love the tea, music and movies too.

I hope to spoil you soon...
