I was born and raised here in Des Moines and am married with three children.

My girls are 16, 13 and 5 and keep me very busy! I graduated from Roosevelt High School, got my cosmetology degree from Iowa School of Beauty and have been a hairstylist for 22 years. Staying updated with current trends is important to me so I’ve attended various classes throughout my career to learn new styles and techniques and improve on the classic ones. I am also a certified make up artist. I’ve been with Elements for 2 years and enjoy the upbeat salon atmosphere. My clients love it and you will, too!

My hair product line is Kevin Murphy. I’m really excited about these products because I’ve seen amazing results in this completely organic line.

My make up product line is Mirabella. I love these cosmetics because they are all mineral based and create a very natural finish.
