Before my life as a professional makeup artist, I lived on the west coast completely drawn to makeup due to a close friend who did some acting in Los Angeles.  Years later, after helping friends out and knowing the illuminating effects of good makeup and skin care, I realized the depth of the fire in my heart to elevate beauty and become a makeup artist.  I realized that it's what I was meant to do.  Corporate America had been good to me but I never found a passion there.  I graduated near the top of my class at the International Spa Institute where the makeup courses ignited my passion and became my total focus after completing licensing in esthetics.  I love contributing with other creative professionals that I am blessed to meet on photo shoots and many projects, both private and commercial.

My husband and I live in Hampton, Virginia.  We pursue health and fitness by working out at Crossfit and eating well ...most of the time!  We also enjoy running in a few races each year, which is how we first met in a chance encounter.  Yes, I am a romantic at heart.
