Cosmetology is my second career after serving in the Air Force for 5 years. It wasn’t until doing an exercise with the military where we worked with a Hollywood make up artist to create looks for a mock drill that I realized my true calling. I fell in love with the transformations we created through hair and make up and decided when my time in the military was over, I would peruse a career in Cosmetology. I attended that Aveda institute in Chapel Hill, and during our extensive training, I found myself being drawn to color, in particular balayage and ombre. I also love playing around with different braided styles. I look forward to exploring more with make up in the future, but in the meantime I am enjoying mastering my technique with hand painted, customized color looks. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my son traveling places near and far.
