I’ve been a licensed cosmetologist for over twenty-two years, and still manage to learn something new everyday. I received my first cosmetology license in California, worked in San Francisco at Hubert Braun, in the Stonestown Mall, then moved on Sloat St., where I worked at the Slone Square Salon. After I married in 1993, we moved to Portland, Oregon. I attained my Oregon cosmetologist license, and began working in downtown Portland, at Alder West, on Alder & 10th. Patty, from Shear Creations, had little trouble convincing me to come work with her here in Lake Oswego in June of 2009; I liked it so much that I have happily become the new owner. Portland, Lake Oswego and West Linn are very special to me, filled with caring, creative people and I love being here.

I believe cosmetology is both an art and a science, and as an artist, I find myself using everything I’ve learned through experience and education: I’ve always been interested in art, and have a BA in art from Marylhurst University. However, there is a lot of science involved in creating newer and safer hair products, too, which I stay abreast of through ‘continuing education,’ and I enjoy letting my clients know about the latest developments, so that they can achieve the most from these hair products.

My most important and challenging goal is to create a style that best suits each individual, with consideration to each client’s desires, needs, occupation, and other special requirements: weddings, graduations and other special occasions.

I enjoy working with people and creating new styles. I’ve had some very interesting and fun work experiences over the years including, working on a movie-set, working with elders in nursing homes and fashion shows.
