Hair Stylist/Colorist/ Esthetician
I've been doing hair since 2007 and I enjoy my career more and more with every year that passes. I started working with Kristy at Elevations Hair Design in May of 2010. I love my job and what I do. I love the salon, the people I work with and I love the people I work for (You, my clients). I am very fortunate to have found this wonderful family, and I look forward to countless more years to come.
I am a very laid back, yet structured person. I am a great listener which has always helped me achieve what my clients ask for, as well as in building strong relationships. I want to make everyone around me comfortable and free to be who they are. That's very important to me, and it makes me happy to make other people happy.
I was born and raised here in Portland, Oregon, and love all the culture and diversity this town has to offer. The older I get, the more I love it here. Growing up, I wasn't the little girl that played with everyone's hair and dreamed of becoming a Hairstylist. I actually wanted to be a professional Roller Skater (but hey, it's never too late right!). After I graduated from Wilson High School, I took classes for two years at PCC Sylvania trying to discover my life's passion. While attending school, I worked as a receptionist at a local salon and discovered the fun and creativity of the beauty industry. From there, I started beauty school and started my journey developing my career. I love art in all its forms and enjoy seeing all the unique ways people bring it to life, and this industry is just one of the ways I can surround myself with artistic imagination.
I strive to have my salon environment reflect the way I live my life, creating a space that's welcoming, non-judgmental, fun, creative and happy. I pride myself in being surrounded by great people, friends and loved ones, and I'm always grateful to welcome new individuals to our salon family!
