Tell us about your education and professional experience.
I joined VAIN in 2016 after 7 years doing hair and expanding my clientele in Texas. I did my training at the Academy of Hair Design in Beaumont, TX.
Life/interests outside of VAIN?
I love hanging out with my dog, Pennie, and value time spent with awesome friends…especially those who will indulge my enthusiasm for karaoke (it's one of my favorite things!) I also love being in nature and exploring outside the city — it’s great to go hiking and have a chance to take in all the beauty around us.
