When I was going through beauty school it was hard to image what my life would be like now. What an adventure it has been, since my beauty school graduation in 2000.
For beauty school, I went to Mt. Hood Community College and received my Associates Degree in Cosmetology. I've worked at a couple of salons in Portland, but notably, I worked at Toni & Guy where I started as a color apprentice. After my intense 7 month apprenticeship, I worked there for 4 years before moving down to Albany. Working there gave me an immense appreciation for color theory and hair education. I truly am a color specialist.
I am also passionate about my family. 2000 was a big year for me again because I married my Chris that year. Our family grew to 3 in 2010, then 4 in 2011 when the adoptions of our children were finalized. They each are growing so fast and definitely keep life interesting.
Our family now owns The Mane Event Salon & Spa. Chris and I carry the responsibilities, but I say "family" because you may see Austin running the front desk or Emy dusting the shelves. I feel honored to be part of The Mane Event Story and I feel compelled to uphold it well. I am passionate about all these aspects of my life, and am very thankful for them.
