Our Team


Owner, Stylist, Wax Specialist, & Nail Technician





Stylist • Owner • Wax Specialist • Nail Technician

I have been expanding my skills as a cosmetologist over 30+ years and truly enjoy it.  I have been fortunate enough to have practiced from coast to coast, so I have had the opportunity to learn from many different styles and many different eras. My love of learning and education fuels me in many aspects of my life including how I relate to my clients. I can take a little longer than the average stylist because of this, however I think that you will find that the wait is worth your while.  Everyone is unique in their haircare needs which sometimes can be challenging but I look forward to getting to know you and helping to make it easier. I bring a very unique warm and caring approach to developing each individuals definition of their ideal image.  I like to factor in each person's characteristics as well as the demands on their time and haircare needs to develop a style tailored to each person. That is one of the favorite parts of my career. I specialize in fine hair, challenging directional growth patterns (cowlicks) and hair with a variety of curl. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to achieve your favorite style.

Choosing to attend Cosmetology school, where I graduated from in 2004, was a natural decision for me.  I have always loved playing with hair as a child.  In high school my love for hair continued, I enjoyed taking care of my friends' hair for homecoming, and prom and my talent for special occasion styles continues to grow.  JC Penney in Kansas hired me on as a beginner stylist.  Working for this company allowed me to grow as a stylist and discover my love for color.  In December of 2006, my husband and I moved to Oregon.  I transferred to JC Penney at Washington Square, where I met Jennifer McKim.  Jennifer, the owner of Salon Mariposa, asked me to join their team in 2013.


Formal event/occasion hair was my first love and continues to be so.  I will travel for wedding events that are within the Portland Metro area.  It’s my goal to help you feel special as well as look great for your formal occasion.


I have always been a creative person, using hair as my canvas, is the perfect form of artistic expression for me.  Corrective color services, fashion color, bright blonds or grey coverage services are what I thrive on.  I love a good challenge when it comes to color.
