I am proud to be the owner and a hairstylist at Portray Salon. I have been in the industry for 38 years now. I started my journey as a graduate of Capri Institute of Hair Design. I love my job because I get to make every person that sits in my chair feel great about themselves. I get to meet so many new people every day and everyone has a different story and wants a different look and I get to help them accomplish that. I love to go to classes and further my education by learning about the latest trends techniques and products and sharing that knowledge with the salon staff and my clients.
     As a Senior Hair Color Educator for Alfaparf Milano for eight years I enjoyed learning and teaching with fellow colorists whether behind the scenes on the stage or in a classroom. It was one of the most rewarding experiences as a hairstylist.
Skilled as a master colorist in all techniques of hair color. Corrective hair color is one of my favorites.

Sign: Libra


I have been doing hair since I was 16 years old. I joined the cosmetology club in high school as a freshman and loved it. I joined the cosmetology class the next year and continued the class for the next three years. As a senior in high school I took my cosmetology exam and had my hair license before my high school diploma. 

I started working as a receptionist, and hair assistant after school and on the weekends and worked my way up to having my own clients by the age of 21. I started at Portray about 6 years ago and it was one of the best decisions I have made. We are a family and treat our customers like they are as well. I continue to take classes based on my personal interests as a stylist and keep up with the newest trends to further my education and to keep my mind and techniques fresh.

Proudest Moment: having my 2 babies


As a little girl I always styled my Barbie's hair and gave them hair cuts.  When I was going to college for environmental engineering I got a job in a salon where I grew from receptionist to assistant, and eventually a stylist/manager...20 years and a few salons later I am still at it and have never looked back!
I am the newest member of the Portray family (started Feb '18), and I already feel like it's a perfect fit!  I love my new home and can't wait to grow here!
The most rewarding part of my job is seeing the look on my clients' faces when I give them "exactly what they were looking for" even when they don't know themselves.  My career is not just about giving people a new look, but also about the connection made and being reminded we are all connected to eachother in this crazy world!

Education:  I never stop learning.  I am always taking continuing education and am currently training to be an educator myself.
