I am proud to be a hair stylist and massage therapist here at Milieu Salon, where I get to work with amazing people and meet so many great clients. I have always had a strong passion for arts and crafts when I was young, and loved to create and transform with either sketching or glasswork etc. With hair, I am able to channel my creativity and artistic nature.


I am a great listener when people tell me their wants and needs with their service, whether it be massage or hair. I'm just so fortunate to be in an industry to connect with so many amazing people, and I really cherish everyone that comes in. For hair I love color and cutting and am good with different hair types. I can work with curly, fine, thick hair and I love it all. I enjoy trying to learn new things and stay up to date the best I can with the new trends. As for massage, I am very nurturing and soothing but can work out problem areas and go deep when needed and customize my massage to my clients needs. I have been doing massage since 2006 and cosmetology since 2009.
