Salon Manager, Senior Stylist, Makeup Artist
I graduated from Aveda Institute Minneapolis in 2006. Continuing with my Aveda training, I worked as a color specialist at Juut Salon in downtown Minneapolis. In 2007, I relocated to Sacramento to work at a salon on a college campus creating many artistic/funky haircuts and colors. My freelance career was born in California. I preformed up-dos and make-up on location for weddings and special events. In 2009, I moved back to my home town of Cedar Rapids to manage a children’s salon. I continued my freelance career and have done many on-site weddings since then. In 2013, I was fortunate to team up with Angie to bring to life our creative vision which is now Salon Voché.
I have participated in Macy’s Glamorama and LA’s fashion week. I have advanced training in wedding styling, hair color, and movie production make-up. In 2014, I received my bachelor’s degree from the University of Iowa with a concentration in Chemistry.
My Specialties for hair color include Natural Blondes, Bleach & Tones, Corrective Color, and Ombre. I also love to cut short funky hairstyles, Blow-out styling, and make-up applications! I enjoy pampering everyone who sits in my chair. I believe hairstylists have the ability to stress relieve and ease one’s soul. A complimentary scalp massage is offered with every haircut and color service! In my free time I like to hike with my dogs and watch movies.
Graduating from La James International College in 2014, I am approaching my four year mark in the industry. Upon graduation, I was hired at Blaze Color Salon and was promoted to Senior Stylist after my second year. I enjoy a fast paced environment and learning something new every day. I am incredibly passionate about hair which translates to building great relationships with my clients. I specialize in balayage, French cutting, blonding, tape in extensions and corrective color. I excel in educating my guests on their specific hair needs while showing them how to create their look at home.
When not in the salon I enjoy spending time with family, going on road trips and cheering on the Hawks! I am excited about joining Salon Voche to further my career while continuing my passion as a stylist, developing new relationships, and working alongside other talented stylists!

Continuing education is very important to me as I have traveled for classes in places such as San Diego, Miami, and Chicago. I’ve done specialized training in tape-in extensions, color formulating and placement, personalized French haircutting and more! Coloring hair is my biggest passion, while blondes and balayage hair-painting are my specialties . I strive to reach each one of my clients hair goals while maintaining integrity of the hair.
I reside in North Liberty with my husband and baby boy. I spend my free-time working out and spending time with family and friends. I also have a passion for cooking and trying new recipes! I’m overjoyed to start this new chapter of my life at Salon Vochè.

When not working I enjoy spending time with my friends, or cuddling with my cat. I love live music, festivals, traveling, and meeting new people! I have a passion for plants, food, clothes, and coffee 😍
About a year after graduation from Vinton-Shellsburg, I attended Capri colleges Cosmetology program. I always knew I wanted to be a hairstylist. Growing up, I don’t think I remember having a Barbie with hair that wasn’t cut off or melted from my curling iron. My brother always had cute hair too 🙂
I would say my specialty are updos. Wedding and prom season are defiantly one of my favorite times of year. I really like to get crazy with it! I also enjoy women’s cuts and coloring. In my free time I like being around friends and/or family. I try to see as much live music as I can, and enjoy camping/fishing.

I spent several years of my career with a premium chauffeured ground transportation company where I cultivated my management, customer service, sales, recruiting and logistical skills.

I am very much a “tell it like it is” type of person who is passionate, hardworking and fun. I believe that taking risks comes with great rewards and successful business owners are those who are constantly pushing boundaries, challenging themselves and staying innovative.
In my free time I enjoy participating in anything competitive, spending time with my kids, family and friends, enjoying an adult beverage, watching football and spending time outdoors.
