My favorite product is…

Extra-Body Finishing Spray® because it's a workable spray with great hold and it is easy to brush through.

My greatest accomplishment is…

My love for the craft. The hairstyling industry is always changing and there are so many opportunities to express creativity. I never get sick of it. If I'm not doing hair, I'm thinking about doing hair.

I love Paul Mitchell because…

It feels like family. The company culture is like no other. John Paul sets an amazing example of being people-focused and it transcends through the company.

I started with Paul Mitchell…

When the first Paul Mitchell School opened in Costa Mesa in 2000. I created the original color curriculum for the schools. From there I began doing session work as a freelance stylist and I became Editorial Director in 2004.

The first time I styled on stage…

I realized I needed to practice more!

The best advice I ever got was…

Be yourself.

To me, living beautifully means…

Finding a balance between your family, life and career.
