Hairstylist / Owner
Hairstyling has been my passion for 30 plus years, making people smile, feel and look beautiful. I enjoy all aspects of the hairstyling world, especially working with curly hair!! I love the excitement when clients are ready for a “change” and willing to entertain a makeover! Outside the salon my husband Kevin, and I love spending time with our three children Katelyn, Tyson, Michaila, and family dog Jada May. Keeping my mind and body healthy with yoga and running, is an important part of my life. Owning, operating and guiding my fellow co-workers at Expressions has been a very rewarding experience. The warmth, kindness and welcoming atmosphere, felt as you enter Expressions, are what make coming to work everyday a joy.
