Inspired by a hair show in South Florida, I began hairdressing school at the age of 19. In the summer of 2000 I landed assistant position at The Strand Salon in Gainesville, Fl. an Aveda concept salon. Here I was shown the importance of education and exposed to this dream filled industry. In the spring of 2008 my journey began with Davines. Along side Danny my partner in life and in business we had opportunity to work together at Mode Salon and Spa. We became an exclusive Davines concept salon. Three years later we expanded and opened our west location, Mode salon West an Aveda concept salon. Having both Davines and Aveda gives us a global network where we are constantly exposed to the industry trends.

As a Mentor I share my knowledge and I coach our hairdressers as well as our spa therapists on their daily practices. I build their confidence technically by providing hands on education as part of our commitment. We believe so strongly in furthering ourselves that our educators have traveled to NYC, Miami, California, London, Paris and Canada to help grow our network and train with the industries most celebrated.

As the head of Education at Mode Salon Spa East and West I have a responsibility to our guest and to my team to create an environment that shares my love and passion for this industry. Danny and I were invited along with the 20 top salon’s in Florida to attend the industries most respected and sought after program redCHOCOLATE. David Adams and Virginia Meyer, founders of redCHOCOLATE, a new color education program that connects the salon owner, manager and service provider to the essential tools, techniques and processes for sustained growth. David Adams is a globally renowned colorist and former Aveda technical artistic director. Virginia Meyer is a former Aveda Corp. executive and world renown business consultant. This changed the way we see color. Six week’s later we were certified redCHOCOLATE and this changed our culture. “Beautiful color begins with healthy hair.” This famous RedCHOCOLATE saying now resonates with my team and I daily.

Shortly after redCHOCOLATE certification I completed Vivienne Mackinder’s 16 week Editorial Series. This competition focused on Editorial Styling, editorial styling is one of my greatest passions and my greatest challenges. I was the winner of this 16 week competition. Editorial styling focuses on print, runway, red carpet, bridal, and collection work. Some of the greatest hairdresser’s in the world are editorial stylist. Vidal Sassoon, Trevor Sorbe, Vivienne Mackinder, Angelo Seminara, David Adams and Ted Gibson are some of my hair hero’s.
