Owner & Master Stylist
"I am a lover of simplicity with a twist. I love not only the end result, but the thought process behind it". Creating something that looks simple but is actually difficult, is always my greatest personal challenge. However, my inspiration is every client that puts their trust in me while I take time to envision and create.
When I get hugs from my clients, expressing their gratitude for making them feel special and beautiful- that’s my biggest reward right there. No amount of money can give me that whole sense of satisfaction. I love to serve my clients and my community with excellence and much love.
I am an Aveda professional(2016), A certified Wella Color Specialist (1995), An Educator for Sebastian Del Caribe (1994). I am also the proudest mom of two boys and blessed to have married my best friend and perfect half!
Facts about me:
I always slip in a Spanish word or two in my conversations!
I’m terrified of mice.
I love the beach, coffee and books.
I grew up knowing I wanted to work with hair. So when I graduated Evergreen Beauty College I was ready to make people feel beautiful and happy. My favorite services are foils, fashion colors, or basically any kind of coloring. When I'm not at the salon she enjoys gardening, hiking, and learning new crafts.
I have been lucky enough to grow up around hairstylists all of my life who have inspired me to pursue my own career in hair design. I love connecting with people and being behind the chair gives me a special place to do that. Not only do I get to use my creativity, I also get the opportunity to have the best conversations and make others feel good about themselves.
I received my education through the Atarashii Apprentice Program where I was able to train in a salon setting taking clients. It was the perfect, hands-on experience to prepare me for this career. I love balayage and learning new techniques.
When I am not in the salon, I am spending time with my daughter who inspires me every day, creating pottery, gardening, or getting outside and exploring.
Social Media & Digital Arts Consultant
I am our Salon Coordinator. I graduated from the University of Washington in Seattle with a degree in Interdisciplinary Visual Art and Digital Arts and Experimental Media. With my experienced customer service, I want to provide the best experience for the clients and make sure the clients’ needs are being met. I will ensure that you are taken care of from the moment you book your appointment until you walk out the door looking and feeling fabulous!
I started working at Mint Salon because Lisabella was my Spanish teacher and she meant so much to me. As a student of hers I asked for the position persistently and I am here now. I love exploring the outdoors, painting and most of all spending quality time with some good people. I am passionate about saving the environment and protecting what we have left of it. Mint Salon is an absolute blessing and I am beyond grateful for this opportunity and being part of a great team.
Advanced Junior Stylist
I've been working with Aveda products in Aveda salons for over fifteen years now, I'm a firm believer in the company and in this product line! I've been a stylist for about 7 years, and have absolutely found my passion in this career. Nothing makes me happier than hearing the joy in a client's voice when they see what Aveda products can do for their hair. I'm active in continuing education to make sure I can give you styles and colors that are on trend and that you see in current media. I specialize in all hair textures for both cut and color!
I've also discovered a passion for interior design and architecture, and I've been astounded to realize that I actually enjoy hiking up a mountain now that I'm living here in the beautiful Pacific Northwest!
