I began my career at The Great Wave Salon in the Thriftway Shopping Center nearly 30 years ago, which is across the street from the location of my salon. I had a love of competition in beauty school and when I interviewed for my job, Janice Eberle, the salon owner, asked me if I did any competitions and when I told her that I did she said, “Good, there is a competition in two weeks, I want you to enter and do you do pedicures?” Well I placed second at the haircutting competition to her first place. Thus began a great friendship and team of competitors. I had a love for hair color and took as many classes while in beauty school as possible, from various manufacturers. This led to being a color educator for Joico International, then to Farouk Systems, also as a color educator, but of ammonia free products.

Wanting to share my experience and knowledge with young people, I became a licensed instructor and worked at Clover Park Technical College. I took a break from working at the encouragement of my husband and traveled with him as he travels for a living, but three years ago my mother got sick and died. I came home. Naturally, I was called to stand behind the chair once again doing what I love, but now as a salon owner.
