I've been with Aveda for 26 years. That's when my twin sister and her husband opened Modern Wave Salon in 1992. I was hooked! It wasn't until 2002 that I joined the staff as the salon manager and I quickly learned the ins and outs of a fast-paced, expanding and very talent-oriented salon. In 2007, with the expansion of the spa we became Modern Wave Salon and Spa. This inspired me to attend cosmetology school to pursue a passion for helping others with their beauty needs and goals. Over the years, Aveda has meant to me a high quality, high performance, botanically-based product in an eco-friendly package. They are innovative, ethical, environmentally responsible and socially elite. The award-winning holistic beauty brand has been at the top of their game. Although I miss some of the amazing products that have come and gone over the years, I have new favorites to share with my guests. One of the greatest compliments that I have ever received was from a guest who told me that I just gave her a HAIR EDUCATION. I take great pride in the quality and experience that each guest receives. I look forward to continuing my education to better myself and my guest experiences.
