Hairstylist, Advanced Education/Social Media Coordinator, Salon Coach & Educator for The Aveda Academy Denver & Pure Talent Salons

WHAT SHE DOES FOR LOVE: Spend time with the kids at Mount Saint Vincent (home for mentally disabled or orphan children), read, drink coffee, drink coffee while reading (shocker) or just play with hair for FUN!

HER STYLE + BEAUTY:  "My style has evolved over the years from laid back, sweatshirt-wearing, Birkenstock-loving, ponytail swinger to an Audrey Hepburn, Banana Republic, chic, trendy woman. My go-to item, is my Lululemon black and white scuba hoodie. It's the most comfortable thing in the world - and I would wear it everyday if I could."

HER 2015 GOAL: "Do something for myself. That sounds weird, but I'm constantly working for other people, making other people feel good, look good, be good. I want to do something for me -- whether it's get my work published or take a trip for myself or learn something new without feeling guilty about doing it."

A WOMAN SHE ADMIRES: "I admire strong, brave and courageous women from Christine Caine to single mothers to my all of my girlfriends out there. This is a challenging and difficult world and I love sharing life with all of the beautiful women out there!"
