I am an East Tennessee native and I love the beauty of our region. If I am not cutting hair, you will probably find me running trails in the woods or paddling on the lake.

My early career started in the mid 1990s in the grocery wholesale business as a merchandiser, sales rep, and a coordinator. I enjoyed serving my customers and employees in that business for many years. In 2010 I decided to change careers and move into the spa business . I enjoyed my work in the industry and decided to further my education in 2014 by attending Tennessee School of Beauty. I received excellent instruction by people who had mastered their craft. I decided to focus my attention on cutting hair and specifically, clipper cutting.

I began working at the Barber Shop at the Grove Center in 2015. I have had the privilege of working under the direction of 2 master barbers with over 35 years of combined experience.

In May of 2017 I had the opportunity to purchase the barber shop from the previous owners who decided to retire.
