Did you always know you wanted to be in the beauty industry?

Nope! Before getting into the beauty industry I actually only received a handful of professional salon services. But I have been a lifelong artist– I guess manicuring translates into tiny canvases.

What’s your beauty and wellness philosophy?

Always do what feels right for you!

Nail colors/nail care that you’re super into these days.

As far as color goes, I like muted tones such as grey blues, mauves, nudes and earthy greens. Pair them with an easily maintained rounded/oval nail shape for a sophisticated and practical look for daily wear.

What’s a misconception that people have about nail services?

That you need a special occasion to come in for nail or spa services. Seriously guys, you know how much better you feel about yourself after a foot massage? Do it for you.

You’re on a desert island – what are your must have Aveda products?

Lavender essential oil is a MUST. Besides the calming aroma, it also soothes the skin, is antibacterial, anti-fungal and an anti-inflammatory!

If you could dine with anyone, who would it be and why?

Salvador Dalí, because he’s just so bizarre. I’ve always wanted to try dishes from his cookbook, Les Diners de Gala.

Favorite thing(s) to do in Milwaukee.

I love spending time at the art museum, biking the oak leaf trail, and going out to eat. Cafe CorazónRice n Roll Bistro and Odd Duck being my favorite go to places.

On your day off, we can find you_____.

At home. Tending to my houseplants, working on an acrylic painting, reading a fictitious novel or new age poetry on the couch with a cat on my lap.
