Stylist • Owner • Wax Specialist • Nail Technician
I have been in the beauty industry for over 20 years. As a Navy wife, I have created hair styles from Maine to the West Coast and have learned a lot along the way. I bring a warm personal approach to my clients and love being a cosmetologist. I specialize in fine hair, working with cowlicks, and challenging hair. I enjoy finding the right colour to enhance your best features and to fit your lifestyle. I also provide manicure, pedicure, and waxing services.
I focus on the personal touch, listening to my clients needs to ensure the finished style is exactly what you are looking for. Taking a seat in my chair may take a few more minutes than the faster paced stylists, but I think you will find the finished style to be worth it.

I can't remember a time when I didn't want to do hair. I started at home when I was about five doing styles on my dad while he napped in his recliner. I started beauty school when I was a senior in high school and graduated in 2004. The first salon I worked at was in Crystal, Minnesota where I learned a lot! I moved to Oregon in 2006 and have only grown from there. We opened Salon Mariposa in May of 2009.
I love the challenge of creating what my clients what while maintaining the health and integrity of the hair. There is nothing better than using my creativity to create something that leaves a look of joy on my client's face. I get to help people with the one accessory that they wear ever day! I have a wide range of clients from every day styles to very wild/edgy styles and colors. I specialize in funky color, razor cutting techniques, and updos. I also do waxing and make-up.
When I'm not at the salon, I enjoy spending time with my two beautiful daughters, friends, and family.

I began my beauty career at the Summit Salon Academy in Portland. I’ve been a stylist since 2015, and continued learning under Stephanie in our associate program. Education is very important to me, and I make a point to go to as many classes and seminars as possible. I love keeping up on all the latest hair and makeup trends; though I tend to drift towards more natural looks, I enjoy working with vivid colors and statement pieces as well. I offer all hair and aesthetic services, however I like to focus on color, blow outs, and makeup.
Most of my free time is spent outside; a lot of it at the local dog parks with my fur baby. I also love hiking, swimming, and curling up with a good book. Volunteering is very important to me, and I love being able to use my cosmetic knowledge to be able to give back.

I have had a love of hair since I was a child. It all started out with braiding my Barbie’s hair. As I got older my close friends were always willing to let me play with their hair. In high school word got around and soon I was doing updo’s on friends of friends for homecomings and proms. When I graduated it was a natural decision for me to attend Cosmetology school. I graduated cosmetology school in 2004. I worked for JC Penney in Kansas for a while until my husband and I moved to Oregon in December of 2006. I continued to work for JC Penney where I met Stephanie, Jennifer and Jo. I am blessed to be working with friends that are so individually talented.
My specialties lay in updo’s, fun unique color, as well as a more conservative color. I enjoy a good challenge while keeping the hairs integrity intact. Healthy hair is beautiful hair after all.

I finished beauty school in 2000 graduating from Magee Brothers School of Beauty. I went on to further my education with Edward Wadsworth for Hair by doing a year and a half color specialist apprenticeship program. After completion, I went to work for Aveda for 10 years. Over the years, I have mainly specialized in color. I also taught at a beauty school for 3 years.
I enjoy doing classic, yet edgy cuts and also color to add brightness to your life!

I graduated from Summit Salon Academy Portland in 2010. After 2 1/2 years behind the chair, I was pulled back to be an educator! I couldn't stay away because I love helping students have their AHA! moments. I know students need an instructor that treats them like a real person and is committed that their skills are at their highest. I have been able to take my skills to the next level through so much training through the school.
I am a California transplant and Portland has provided me with a new start for more than just my career. I have been married for over 3 years.
