Did you always know you wanted to be in the beauty industry?
Nope! Before getting into the beauty industry I actually only received a handful of professional salon services. But I have been a lifelong artist– I guess manicuring translates into tiny canvases.
What’s your beauty and wellness philosophy?
Always do what feels right for you!
Nail colors/nail care that you’re super into these days.
As far as color goes, I like muted tones such as grey blues, mauves, nudes and earthy greens. Pair them with an easily maintained rounded/oval nail shape for a sophisticated and practical look for daily wear.
What’s a misconception that people have about nail services?
That you need a special occasion to come in for nail or spa services. Seriously guys, you know how much better you feel about yourself after a foot massage? Do it for you.
You’re on a desert island – what are your must have Aveda products?
Lavender essential oil is a MUST. Besides the calming aroma, it also soothes the skin, is antibacterial, anti-fungal and an anti-inflammatory!
If you could dine with anyone, who would it be and why?
Favorite thing(s) to do in Milwaukee.
On your day off, we can find you_____.
At home. Tending to my houseplants, working on an acrylic painting, reading a fictitious novel or new age poetry on the couch with a cat on my lap.
