I specialized in blonde hair and special occasion hair and makeup but have a passion for a multitude of services including but not limited to: hair color, color correction, ombre, balayage, foiling, cutting, makeup application, conditioning treatments, glosses, nails, waxing and skincare. After my husband finished his training in Florida we finally moved back home to Colorado after almost 4 years away and I am thrilled to be able to return to the Aspen Grove team.

Hair Stylist and Nail Technician

I've been in the industry for 5 years and recently moved to Colorado from New Jersey. I attended The Aveda Institute in New Jersey. I had the privilege of working the Milly show during New York City fashion week in 2012. I was able to apprentice while taking clients during the first year I was out of school, learning so much from those ladies. I feel living in New Jersey and being so close to New York kept me on my toes while I kept up with all the new fashion and hair trends. I push myself every day to become a better stylist. I try my best to treat every client as if its their first time in my chair. I really enjoy building relationships with my clients. I love being a hairstylist because it allows me to connect with people on a personal level. The saying "if you love what you do, you won't work a day in your life" and I find that to be so true in my life! Working at Aspen Grove, this teaching salon, with their new cosmetology school, I have all the education I need right at my fingertips. I look forward to furthering my education in the spa industry doing facials and nails. Also having the barber shop right here so I can't wait to brush up on my men's cuts! Blessed to be a part of such a great team!

Esthetician

I was born in Kansas and have lived in Colorado since I was four years old. My blended family and I love Colorado. All of the sunshine we get makes it a hard state to leave. I worked as a stylist for 16 years, but as I got into my thirties I started to see my skin aging. Although Colorado is beautiful, our skin ages faster here, due to the high amount of sun exposure and dry climate. I was looking for solutions so my curiosity led me to continue my education in skin care. I took advanced classes, becoming certified in Microdermabrasion, Chemical Peels and DermaPlaning. I also have become very skilled over the years with extractions, developing a technique to be as gentle as possible. This works well with acne clients who are dealing with sensitive skin and inflammation. My curiosity led me to my passion that I didn't know existed. The best part of what I do, is seeing the real changes I can make towards improving a clients skin, which in turn builds their self-esteem and confidence. That is what gives me joy! . I am excited to be joining Aspen Grove's family and look forward meeting many new clients!
