I have been a medical technician and optician since I graduated high school, yet always somehow made time to do hair on the side for fun and challenge myself to try new things. After 6 years of making friends and family beautiful (and hearing from numerous people I should be doing hair full time), I finally decided it was time to follow my dreams of becoming a hair stylist. With much support from family & friends, I quit my medical career of 15 years and began cosmetology school. I went to a competency based Portland Beauty school- and because of my past experience and determination, I was able to finish 4 months early in front of my class. Seeing my clients love their results makes me love what I do even more, and know I made a good choice. Working with brides and creating a picture perfect look for their dream day is a special passion of mine. Portland Make-up & Hair is a perfect fit for me, and is allowing me to do more of what I love.

When I'm not working I'm making special memories with my amazing 2 kids and better half, we love vacationing, camping, fishing, sports and all kinds of crafts.
