Before life as a professional makeup artist and having a license in esthetics, I lived on the west coast completely drawn to makeup due to a close friend who did some acting in Los Angeles, where I was constantly exposed to beauty and fashion trends. A few chapters later, after helping friends with makeup and sharing in their joys, I recognized the fire in my heart to become a makeup artist and develop this form of art.  Corporate America had been good to me but I never found a deep passion there. So I graduated near the top of my class at the International Spa Institute where the makeup courses solidified my passion and became my total focus.  I love contributing with the other creative professionals who I am blessed to meet on photo shoots and events, both private and commercial. 

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