I attended Cosmetology School In 1988 and continued on to complete my Instructors course.  After graduating my long term goal was to own a Salon,  in which God blessed me with in April of 2005.  I believe strongly in continuing education, keeping up with the latest styles and giving my Guests a look that not only compliments them but one they can achieve on their own.  Team work and a Friendly Professional Staff is also something we strive for daily.


I’ve been here at Agape Salon & Spa since 2006.  Hair Design has always been my passion and there was no doubt in my mind that this was going to be my career.  I’m always attending classes and shows to further my education,  keeping up with the newest trends and styles.  I am also a licensed SkinCare Specialist along with Make-Up artist.  I love to make people look and feel beautiful.



I have been at Agape Salon & Spa since 2009, after attending David Pressley school of Cosmetology in Royal Oak.  I love my career and I’m always up for new challenges.  In 2013 I attended an intense Training class for Pravana Color line.  I came back inspired and with new techniques.  The most important thing is to use my creative side to give my Guest the best look possible


My whole life I’ve always been more on the creative side with everything I do. In high school I was given the opportunity to pursue cosmetology during my senior year. So, after receiving my high school diploma and graduating cosmetology in the same year I jumped right into my career here at Agape Salon and Spa.  I began with the assistant program and then became a full time stylist in January 2010.
I’m always exploring my career, learning new techniques and styles that will benefit my clients.
