It wasn’t one particular thing that made me become a stylist. After graduating from the University of Washington with a Communications Degree, I was looking for jobs that combined both working with people and being creative. At the time, I was using Aveda products and loved the way they smelled so on a whim I signed up at the Gary Manuel Aveda Institute and have been enjoying this adventure ever since! I love that the world of beauty is a place for everyone to explore who they want to be. Individuals can control and change their lives on a range from a trim to a bold color to a new shampoo. I’m inspired by the women I work with and that makes me a better person and stylist every day. I’m obsessed with the brand (Aveda) we use I love the beauty of our location that allows people to feel pampered and welcome to share their lives with us.
