Owner, Hair Stylist Level 4

Why is Avanté special to you?

The team we have here at Avante is what makes it special. Together we focus on customer service and helping people feel great and look amazing. I couldn't fulfill this dream of owning a salon without having a strong committed group to carry out our collective passion.

Do you have kids?

My husband and I have two boys. They're both into soccer, football, snowboarding and skiing.  They love being outside, being ninjas, and watching movies. They keep things interesting, for sure. I can't imagine life without them.

What is one thing you love about your profession?

I love having the opportunity to give someone a brand new look. Our hair is such an important part of our identity and it's good to reinvent it now and then. It's fun to see someones confidence build after giving them a chance to see some new hair color or a new haircut.

What do you like to do outside of work?

Spending time with family is a important part in my life. We live close to our extended families and we do a lot together. The beach is definitely my happy place, Taking my boys and do something for their first time is fun, their first flight was one of my favorite memories. I like to do DIY projects, decorating and I love to sleep!

What's your favorite food?

Cookies, pumpkin bread, and pizza. I love sprinkles... a lot.

Why is Avanté special to you?

I love Avanté because it is genuinely the warmest, most supporitve work enviroment that I have ever worked in. We all enjoy each other and we all want our guests to be as satisfied as possible. We care about the atmosphere that we create and I think that translates really well into our work.

What do you enjoy doing outside of work?

Oh my gosh! So many things. I love crafting (all sorts), video games, reading, going to movies, baking, and listening to music and podcasts! 

What is your dream vacation?

I have a degree in Art History so I'm a sucker for anywhere with museums. I would love to visit Rome, Prauge, or the Netherlands! Actually I will travel anywhere for any reason, ha.

Do you have any pets?

We have two cats Berta and Momo! 

How would you describe your style?

Low fuss, trendy, with hints of vintage? I prefer a simple silhouette and color scheme (aka lots of black)  but I love accessories and bright punches of bright color.  I also love mixing patterns.
