I started my adventure in the beauty industry in October of 2015! I love the variety of services I am able to offer with my double license in Cosmetology & Esthetics! I enjoy attending as many educational opportunities as I can and, since joining the Sunjara tribe, love educating my guests about Aveda products so they can achieve the same look at home. I am very excited to expand my Esthetics work with a new non-invasive skin care treatment called HydraFacial, new to Sunjara.  When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time on my farm, with my family and friends, and watching Grey’s Anatomy!

Massage Therapist

Massage therapy is something I wanted to do for a long time and I have been practicing for about three years. I enjoy hearing the benefits it gives people and improving their life style. I joined Sunjara Salon in May 2018 and I am glad for the opportunity to learn, grow and be a better therapist, along with my amazing tribe! Trying new things, going to different places, and meeting new people is what I enjoy the most about life.
