I have been in this amazing industry for 14 years.  I still feel the excitement today as I did from day one. 

I have lived in Central Iowa most of my adult life. I love spending time with my husband and daughter, while we go mushroom hunting, long walks in the woods, stargazing, listening to music, watching the latest blockbusters and of course all things hair. 

My husband is a huge gardener and each year it gets bigger and bigger. See picture below.


We have gotten the travel bug and are now planning family trips. Ideas welcome if you have been anywhere amazing.

I didn't know until later in life what I wanted to do.

Most thought I was going to be a computer programmer. Well that lasted a whole two seconds as I couldn't see myself sitting behind a desk all day long. 

When my daughter was 3 years old I decided I wanted to have a career where I could support my family and still be a mother to Amber.

I was a hairstylist in Ames since 2007-2018, then in September 2018 I moved to Ankeny were I started renting out a private suite.

I absolutely LOVE my private suite!! 

It has been an amazing journey so far.

I am very blessed to be able to work in a career that is so rewarding. Making my guest feel inspired, desired, and that they can always achieve their style with a experience like no other.

I'm am so honored to be the

Thriver of the year for 2020.

I have been a hairstylist who has worked with a business coach "Britt Seva" for the last 3 years this spring.

The Thriver's community voted me to be their Thriver of the year for 2020!


Think Peoples Choice Awards but for Hairstylist who are in the top 5%.
