Hi! I am the proud owner of Locks and Loaded Salon and Sittin' Pretty Salons since 2019. Being a salon owner has been a dream of mine for as long as I can remember. Keep reading below to find out more about me and how I got here.

I've grown up in Fort Collins since 2001 and I'm proud to call it my forever home. I decided to go to The Paul Mitchell Cosmetology School of Denver after years of lack of motivation in high school. A traditional class room was not for me. So I gave beauty school a shot. I immediately was flooded with creativity and passion. I participated in school clubs, like The Design Team,  where I fell in love with makeup. I did fashion shows and photo shoots with some of the biggest names in Denver. I was even featured in fashion magazines for my makeup work. I was also in the honor society of my school called Phase Two where I learned more advance skills and real world knowledge. Continuing my education is my number one passion in my career. I have traveled over the U.S. to continue learning new skills and perfecting my craft. I want to give my clients the very best experience by offering them new hair trends and perfecting the old ones.  My connection I have with my clients truly is something special. I want you to come into my salon and feel like you gained a new best friend friend within minutes. I strive to give you a comfortable clean space while you indulge in yourself. I cant wait to meet you!
