A former Visual Merchandiser, Fashion Stylist and Set Designer. I have enjoyed twenty plus years of prosperity with a loyal clientele in Chicago and have recently ended my tenure from Duet Inc. A relocation sideways finds me looking forward to the next exciting chapter of my career here in sunny California. Spacial Planning is my natural gift and I have been very fortunate to earn a living doing what comes naturally to me. I am a proficient team player and understand the synergy of a Salon Environment. I have excellent time management and people skills. My techniques are creative and versatile and I enjoy what I do. I approach beauty from the outside in.
