Years in Industry: over 27 years
What sets you apart from other manicurists?
I have been in the industry long enough to know when trends will work, what is the newest, latest, and greatest as well as keeping traditional services up to date, example, Ombre French Nails, colored acrylic, and nail art. I also don’t use any products unless they are made of high-grade material and I never buy in bulk to get a cheaper product. I have an extremely high standard for sanitation and disinfection in our Nail Bar which goes beyond State Board regulations. I listen to my guests’ needs and I can communicate with them. Each one of my guests walks out happy with their signature look.
What are your passions for your art?
My passion for doing nails started when I was 14 and I had my first full set! I knew from that very first appointment that nails are what I was going to do. I love the intricacy, the detail, the precision, and the creativity it takes to do nails.
What do you love about your career?
I love that I can meet local people who are from our community and I get to know that person. I am not stuck in a cubicle all day. Every hour I have a different person in my chair with a different story. I get to express my creativity through nails and transfer the art that is in my head to hands and feet!
How would you describe your work?
My work is unique and creative! I do a lot of custom nail art that is locally known and it is exciting to me when I have a guest tell me “I saw your work on one of your clients!”
