Staff Profile


Senior Designer and Trainer

Joined staff in 2001

"As the  Director of Associates and a color trainer for our DJW Education Team, I am constantly driven to remain on the cutting edge of my craft so that I can inspire our emerging artists. That is my way of giving back … offering a bright and successful career to the future artists of our industry!  "

"As an Internationally trained stylist and former Wella Brand Color Specialist and Educator, hair color became my primary focus.I enjoy the everyday challenges of complex color correction projects."

"Much of the work I do focuses on correcting a home hair color gone wrong or an adjustment back to a more natural and realistic hair color on a first time guest.  I encourage my clientele to adjust colors seasonally to compliment skin tone changes as well as fashion trends. From the subtle to the dramatic, I enjoy creating flattering, enhancing and relevant colors for both my male and female guests."

"The core foundation of my training is based in understanding the unique needs and specific objectives of my guests. I consider myself an artist that interprets those needs and objectives and paints a canvas of colors ... blended to match every aspect of their lifestyle. "

The wonder of nature and her seasonal changes.
