My favorite product is…

Sculpting Foam™.

My greatest accomplishments are…

Being Global Artistic Director for John Paul Mitchell Systems, owning my salons and two Paul Mitchell® Schools, being featured in Milady’s Standard Cosmetology textbook, and my award for Legends and Icons presented to me by John Paul DeJoria.

I love Paul Mitchell because…

It was love at first sight.

I started with Paul Mitchell…

In beauty school when I knew the least about the industry. I made the best decision.

The first time I styled on stage...

I thought I was doing a finger wave with Hair Sculpting Lotion™. Turned out I was using Shampoo Two®. The result was wavy and full of lather—the crowd loved it.

The best advice I ever got was...

When the Paul Mitchell sales consultant in Memphis, Tennessee came to my beauty school and suggested I go to a Paul Mitchell class. 

To me, living beautifully means...

Being part of this company. Never in my wildest dreams did I see what was in store from being part of the Paul Mitchell culture. It’s a lifestyle filled with beautiful people. Everything I've become, I owe to John Paul Mitchell Systems.
