After working in a corporate salon for nearly a decade, I decided to take a leap of faith and open Salon Bonita in 2014. I had the goal of offering a friendly, fun and honest way of doing business.  My passion for hair comes from the desire to make people feel good about themselves by tailoring cuts and colors to bring out the best features in every client.  I am truly proud of the path Salon Bonita has taken and look forward to what’s coming.  Outside of the salon I love spending time with my husband and two beautiful daughters.

I’ve been in the hair industry since 2010 and have been at Salon Bonita since we opened in 2014.  I have many passions in life. One being art, which is why I love this industry.  Each person that sits in my chair is a new canvas and I feel blessed I have the opportunity to listen to other peoples stories and make them feel beautiful. Nothing excites me more than being challenged, so bring it on!

I’ve always wanted a career that I can be myself and help others.  I love this industry because I get the opportunity to meet new people and constantly learn.  One of my favorite things is teaching my guests how to feel confident styling their hair at home. Outside of the salon I enjoy spending time with family and reading.

After staying home with my children, and my youngest starting school, it was time to start a career in what I love. So, I went to cosmetology school and started my career as a cosmetologist. After being in the salon for a few years, I decided to further my education and become an educator. I taught cosmetology for eight years before deciding to get back behind the chair full time at Salon Bonita. I love seeing a vision with my clients and creating it, making them look and feel their best. When I’m not doing hair, you’ll find me enjoying life with my husband, my three children and our dog.

I have been in the hair industry and behind the chair, doing what I love, since 2009.  My passion for hair began at an early age and has continued to grow over time through my experience in the industry.  My favorite things about being a hairstylist are building relationships with clients; being creative and technical in my work; and evoking positive and exciting change by transforming clients’ hair, whether by refreshing a current look or creating a new one.  This brings about change in attitude, perspective and confidence.  I believes it’s crucial for clients to feel heard and understood.  My main goal is for my clients to leave the salon feeling satisfied and happy.  I loves doing color, balayage, blondes, and fantasy colors (can someone say mermaid hair?). I also enjoy cutting and styling hair (long hair, pixies, curly hair, you name it).  Through continued education, I stay up to date on current coloring and cutting techniques so I can always offer the best to my clients.  I am excited to be a part of the Salon Bonita team and look forward to taking care of you!

Ever since I was a little I knew I wanted to do hair.  I began my journey in 2018 at PCI Academy in Ames, Iowa.  I have been loving every minute I get to spend in the salon.  Cosmetology has given me the opportunity to show my passion for hair through color and design.  Outside of the salon you can find me teaching dance or spending time with family in the outdoors.
