She has now been in this industry over 11 years working strictly with Aveda. Becoming a manager and educator at only 20, she proceeded to open her own salon at the young age of 24. “I always knew I wanted to be my own boss and I wasn’t going to stop until I was. It is such a blessing that everything worked out the way it did, so that I could be where I am today.” To her this isn’t work; it’s doing something she loves- day in and day out.
“I’m most passionate about seeing my team succeed and fulfill their dreams. I love the relationships I’ve built with all of my guests in addition to making them look AND feel great! There’s nothing I want more for my team than to see everyone’s dreams come true and reach their goals. I enjoy being able to teach people what helped me succeed, and watch it help them as well. There’s nothing I would have rather done with my career than open Salon Pure.”
“Through hard work and perseverance not only a business was born but a place where our guests and employee’s get to come and escape their reality for a short while and feel beautiful again. We wanted this to be a workplace our employees look forward to each and everyday, and our clients look forward to coming back to after each appointment. That in the end makes it all worth it.”
