Before becoming a makeup artist, I lived on the west coast completely drawn to makeup due to a close friend who acted 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 compelling passion there. I graduated near the top of my class at the International Spa Institute where the makeup courses ignited my passion profoundly. I am licensed in esthetics (skin care) but because makeup was a higher calling, that is my focus.
I love working with other creative professionals that I am blessed to meet and learn from in this industry on photo shoot projects and at clients' special events. My husband and I live in Hampton Roads, Virginia. We pursue health and fitness diligently 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!
