I have been a licensed professional since 1988. I worked at local salons in my hometown of Pensacola, Florida up to 1996. Then I started longing for more creativity and to expand my knowledge of my industry. In 1996 I moved to Atlanta, Ga. to begin my advanced Haircolor training at the Vidal Sassoon Salon. It was there that I was an apprentice under the head of hair color for North America. I was able to master my craft and become a professional hair color specialist. At Vidal Sassoon, my hair color training was broken down into many categories to ensure that I mastered all aspects of hair color, so I could meet any challenge. I've taken those skills with me and always have strived to continue to learn throughout my career.
