I was born and raised in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Although I travel often, I've always known Washington was my forever home. I opened Siren Salon in downtown Vancouver Washington in July of 2013, and now have 7 stylists that call my salon home. I completed my cosmetology degree at the Aveda Institute of Portland and have been in the industry for 8 years. I have experience with several color lines, but I am now a proud Joico Certified Colorist. I love to further my education and do so often, most recently becoming a Certified Pureologist. I am thoroughly obsessed with hair and my passion lies in all aspects of my art, from the creation of a beautiful and unique cut & color... to the relationships and inspirations formed through my craft, to participating in fashion shows and other community events & charities.
In my spare time I mostly think about hair, how to improve my abilities, and how to next rearrange or redecorate Siren. I also love to hike (especially in the gorge), read books of all kinds, watch films, garden, and spend time with my husband on our tiny urban farm. I am a mother to many "children", including our dog, 5 cats, our nigerian dwarf twins, Sunny and Luna, & 4 chickens we call The Golden Girls.
