My experience started as a passionate hairdresser knowing from day one that I wanted to own my own salon, I bought my 1st salon after 4 years as a stylist. Many things happened (good and bad) in my 1st years of ownership which help me today be a great coach & trainer. I have walked in the shoes of the people I work with. After hiring a business coach to help me grow my business as well as support my team in reaching their potential I sold my salon and moved to California to help salon spa owners to grow and expand, one of the best decisions I ever made. In the last 19 years, I grew as a coach and trainer, managed the consulting department of Salon Training International and then once again started my own coaching and training company.

Mind Map Specialist

I am so humbled by my experience in starting this salon and love to share the valuable lessons I have learned with my team, as well as my clients. I hire like minded individuals who have the same passion in creating a unique look just for you, with the intention of drawing out your best assets. It is so important to teach you how to duplicate your look at home with ease until your next visit in a relaxing and friendly environment. IT STARTED WITH A DREAM! From dream to reality in 90 days. I had been doing hair for 16 years when I was chosen to be on a TV pilot called Dream. Dream was about achieving your goal in 90 days. I currently own and manage Salon Cartier in Northern California.
