Favorite Hairstylist for the second year in a row
Like so many other people
I know the lure of Ashland and living in Southern Oregon was too great,
and in January of 1999 my husband and I relocated from Portland. We
love the slower pace and bluer skies that this area offers to all who
live here, and cherish all of the friendships that we have made. Our
lives have been enriched by the personal relationships and connections
that we have made and we feel blessed to call Ashland our home.
I was born and raised in
left for 2 years to explore the U.S.A. This not only allowed me to see
and experience our country but it gave me a new appreciation for living
in Oregon as we really do live in a beautiful state.
did my initial training
Portland, completing both cosmetology school as well as barber school
and apprenticed to be a master barber. I worked in several salons in
the Portland area, and have taken advanced training courses from Toni
& Guy, Sassoon, Yosh, Aveda, Schwarzkopf, Matrix, Goldwell,
Label M and Lanza.
I opened and operated two
salons in the
Portland area, worked on stage and television sets and teamed up with
two photo studios doing makeovers for glamour photo shots. For several
years I was an educator for Nicole and participated in workshops held
in the top salons in downtown Portland.
I believe in having fun
in what I do. If I
had to choose, doing hair color is my favorite service, but I really
enjoy making so many people happy with a great new haircut or a
consistent look that suits them.
moving to Ashland my husband and I have learned to balance work with
play. We have a small motorhome and a large dog and both are ready to
hit the road when we have time off together. Life is good when you
explore your options!
