Hair Extension Specialist and Educator of 16 Years
I tend to identify as an accepting non-judgmental Aquarius, empath, introverted extrovert, animal lover, organizer, hair stylist, web designer, photographer, writer, yogi, intuitive, nature lover, artist, philosopher, musician, and weirdo - in no particular order. On my down time I like to relax in the sun, lay in a hammock, Google random questions that pop into my head, watch the sun go down and the stars come out, and spend time in nature. I also like hanging out with my nephew and learning from him. On any given day you'll find me repeating positive affirmations, stopping what I'm doing to look at the sky, talking in random accents to entertain myself, and referencing astrology.

My client's confidence and well being are my passion. I love to help people feel better. It's amazing how altering our appearance can drastically affect our emotional well being! When we feel good about how we look, it ripples outward and creates a domino affect. I'm so thankful to be able to help people achieve that positive emotional state. My guest's satisfaction and happiness is my main priority.

In 2010 I created the NSBW technique after having clients reach out about their experience with thread breakage on their sew-in method. My goal was to create a method free of glue and thread to eliminate tedious issues. I had a wonderful response from the clients about NSBW, and all of my clients switched to NSBW.
Since selling Glo and going solo, I have been continuing to work on clients. I currently accept clients in Citrus Heights California. I'm also putting more energy into teaching and training. I love helping people grow their business and add on services that help both clients and stylists.
I also became a certified Plasma Fibroblast technician in 2022! Plasma fibroblast is a non surgical skin tightening method that achieves amazing results. Check my Instagram for the latest updates on Plasma Fibroblast
When I was 21, I opened Glo Salon which served Downtown Fullerton, CA for 5 years. Glo Salon started out with two chairs, and grew into a 12 chair salon with a facial room, nail room, and tanning room. We won Yelp's #1 Orange County Salon for 5 years, and had an amazing clientele.
I decided to sell Glo when I felt that I had learned all I needed to from the experience of owning a large salon. The stress of running such a large operation was causing me to ask "Why?" a lot. I sold Glo to Ajay Popoff, lead singer of Lit and part owner of Slidebar in Downtown Fullerton. Moving forward solo, a weight had been lifted off of my shoulders, and I could connect with my clients like I had in the beginning, one on one.

I was blessed to attend Cosmetology school through the ROP program as a junior in high school. I graduated high school early at 17, and shortly after graduated cosmetology school at 18. Being a licensed cosmetologist at 18 allowed me to start my career early, and I'm so thankful that my high school counselor recommended cosmetology.
