Master Colorist


About me:

I absolutely love not only making my guest’s hair look beautiful, I also love helping them to feel good about themselves. Great hair color and the right styling products can truly lift one’s spirit. During my consultation, I take into consideration my guest’s hairstyle, hair texture, skin tone, face shape and bone structure. I also inquire about their commitment to upkeep, as I want the color maintenance to fit into their lifestyle. All of these factors play in to creating a customized color formula and approach that meets my guest’s individual needs.

I am a proud participant in the Green Circle Salons Program.  This program allows me to recycle unused hair color, foils, and the product packaging. When clients get a haircut; the hair is repurposed, NOT thrown away!


I am a master colorist and give a killer blowout! A great finish to a color service showcases the hair color beautifully. I am passionate about making my guests look beautiful and giving them a great experience while they’re in my chair.


Education / Experience:

I have been a hair colorist for 22 years. I attended Douglas J Aveda Institute and worked at Douglas J in Okemos for 18 years. I also co-owned and operating Laurel Salon for 6 years. 

I am a licensed cosmetology instructor and taught at Douglas J Aveda Institute in East Lansing. In addition to my experience, I have taken several color continuing education classes over the years and have mentored many up and coming colorists.
