Hi, I'm


Bio & Services

I love what I do... I get to make the world a more beautiful place...one person at a time. I have so much fun “playing” with hair color at the salon! I am a family oriented person with lots of life experiences that makes me a “relatable’ person to everyone. I LOVE education!! I believe in constantly updating my techniques and skills with frequent classes and seminars. I am always seeking out the newest tools, products and trends to share with my salon guests.

I have enjoyed a long, fun-filled career in the beauty industry. (37+ years) I am in the twilight of my career, and I am no longer accepting new clients. My business roles are evolving , and my focus at this time is managing our two Pewaukee salon leasing facilities. I’ve often joked around with people...that I am just an “average hairdresser”, but I’m really good at “people building”. I love helping new professionals launch their businesses. I get tremendous satisfaction in watching their excitement build with their new found self-employment . Providing an opportunity for these courageous professionals to grow their businesses under our roof, is one of my greatest accomplishments.
