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.
