I have been in the salon industry for almost 11 years. Starting out as a color specialist with Rocco Altobelli in downtown Rochester. Then moved to Richfield for an opportunity with a new business and concept, EQ-Life (a subsidiary of Best Buy) also as a color specialist. I worked in the Richfield location as EQ-life's lead colorist, assisting in training and educating in processes and color and texture techniques. All EQ-life locations closed as of November 2008, and I moved on to work independantly which eventually brought me to the Edina area which I love! To work for myself and also be surrounded by so many motivated, passionate salon operators. Continued education I believe is a large key to success in this industry. I chose to take on cutting and styling a few years ago...which has been very rewarding to be able to completely finish my visions and ideas. I work with Wella as my color line, I have worked with many lines and personally feel I can create the best results and lasting color with this line. I also use product lines that I feel will maintain my work and style best at home!
