Distinctives: I have been a fully licensed cosmetologist since 2001, and received my first lash certification from Novlash in 2004. After mastering the art of synthetic eyelash application, I started building my dream of owning a salon to be able to perform and teach the best techniques developed over the years. I opened the doors of Vixen in 2013 with my lifelong learning platform and am thrilled to be able to coach the members of my team who have a passion for learning and a desire to stay up to date with the ever changing beauty industry.
I believe strong technical skills, professionalism, and having the ability to connect with people are the keys to success in this industry. When you put your mind and energy into achieving your goals, the possibilities are endless. For me there is nothing more rewarding than helping and empowering others. I truly love what I do!

Favorite Quote: It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again…who at best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly. -Theodore Roosevelt

I graduated in December of 2019 from IBMC with my Esthetician License! During my schooling, I fell in love with the idea of transforming peoples beautiful brows into something amazing! From there I decided to take that love and join the Permanent Make-Up Game! I decided taking my course for Ombré Powder Brows was the best direction for me. Since then I have loved making people feel even more beautiful and hope to continue this journey with the love and passion I have for this industry with both lashing and Permanent Make- Up !

Best Quick Tip:
If you ever get mascara on your eyelid after finishing your eye shadow look, allow the mascara to dry, then gently scrub it away with a spoolie. The mascara will come off without any smudging, leaving your shadow just as it was when it was freshly applied.

My love for makeup, skincare, and the beauty industry pushed me to graduate high school early and move out at 17 to pursue a career in esthetics. Over the last two years, I have worked to put myself through beauty school, and I am thrilled to say that I am now a licensed esthetician! I am so grateful to be working in a setting that allows me to learn so much about what I love most, and to be part of an industry that I have always dreamt to be in.

Best Quick Tip:
Don’t throw away your old mascara wand, it’s still got a few uses left. Clean it and use it as a brow brush instead. You might even find it handy around the house — use it to unclog sinks or clean tough to reach areas in your home.

Social Media, Photography and Technology has always come second nature to me and have always had a knack for it. Must be from my MySpace coding days. Born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana I relocated to North Carolina in 2005 due to Hurricane Katrina. I followed my sister here to Colorado and I have 4 beautiful children ages 12 through 3. I am currently working on my Esthetician License to become a Lash Artist.
