During high school I was always cutting everybodys hair in sports
and I became really good at it. When my friends kept asking more and
more for me to cut their hair I grew a good eye for making them look
their best. I began to grow a passion for it and wanted to expand my
skills, so I attended Gene Juarez Academy to learn everything I
could about womans hair and that grew into truly loving what I do. I
love to do it all mens cuts, creative color and womans design. I
came to Stan Parente salons the next day after finishing cosmetology
school where I worked with Stan apprenticing and assisting where I
really got good with cuts & color. I am very grateful to be a part
of Stan's salon and love building long relationships here, I always
have fun and make sure my clients look amazing and have fun while in
