My Journey into Hair and Scalp

...and qualifications

 

The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step ~ Lao Tzu

 

My hair and scalp journey began in February of 2020 and in my mid 40's.

 

I decided after almost 20 years in front of a computer (HR, project coordinating and office management), that it was time to move forward with new purpose. 

 

With prior experience working in traditional salon settings, 2023 has ushered in change and I am most humbled to welcome you into my home salon. This journey of mine is proving to be so exciting, sometimes scary, blessed, rewarding, on occasion exhausting, full of amazing people, it's so much fun and I could go on and on. 

I recognize how unique my story is and I hear from friends, guests, past colleagues, and strangers even how much they wish they could start over and follow a dream or a passion. 

 ~ Oh my heart!! ~

Listen up! My advice: Do It! Start. Create one goal. Take one step. Believe in yourself. It may be difficult but when the heart leads, the feet follow. Life isn't a dress rehearsal my friend. If you are reading this; this is your sign :)
