Stylist/ Instructor/ Coach
About the instructor
I am MOST passionate about creating opportunities for people to experience transformation and reach for their dreams! Stylists, salon owners and anyone interested in creating beautiful hairstyles.... Welcome!
I started in the Beauty Industry in 1980 and enjoyed seasons as a salon owner, Updo educator, platform artist and webmaster.
Then, I moved into the wedding industry educating brides as well as wedding planners on how help brides avoid wedding morning madness. I was a freelance on location artist for high end weddings in New England and NYC.
I am the author of two books, The Morning of Your Wedding and The Business of Bridal Beauty.
In 2005 I "left" the beauty industry for a decade joining my husband, who is a licensed mental health counselor, to live and serve as a coach/mentor at two residential addictions treatment centers. I lead self-improvement and life skills workshops, I helped run trauma groups, as well as crafting events and up-cycling interiors with the residents.
Currently, I am a certified Clarity Coach working in our Mental Health Practice while creating courses on the things I am passionate about for Thinkific!
