Designer

Inspiration:
Since my graduation in 1997, I’ve been in the beauty industry. I am forever grateful for the guidance of a special teacher in my high school that helped me find my way into my career. He helped pave the path of my journey into something of a life I never knew was imaginable. I went to cosmetology school and the rest was history. Doing hair is my passion, my art, my release. My career became a natural extension of my creative self. I believe hair is a canvas and the artistic possibilities are endless. I mastered my craft in Philadelphia where I learned from some of the best artists, built relationships clients I consider family and created an amazing and dynamic life. My decision to re-establish myself in a location closer to my home and family led me to DJW. “Welcome Home” really means something here and I can’t thank David & Galina enough for welcoming me with open arms. I truly do feel at home!

About Me:
Interests outside of the salon for me will always be family first. I have 2 beautiful little girls with an amazing husband and every single day of my life I say thank you for these gifts.  I am a total Yogi and love to workout.  I enjoy learning and living a holistic way of living and teaching my girls and this life! Traveling is key and I try to see the world as much as possible.
