I began my career in the nail industry in 1996 at Regency Beauty Academy in Blaine, MN. I had a couple jobs in different salons until I landed a position in a 3 chair barber shop in Downtown St. Paul. I rented a chair as I built up a nail clientele. I remained there for 5 years. After my daughter was born I wanted to be closer to home. I Started work at Adevia Spa/Salon in Forest Lake and made that my home for the last 10 years. While there, I attended many trade shows and numerous continuing education classes including, Strategies, Live, Love, Be. Champs Camp. I took on the team lead position and helped the growth of the nail department. I became an Educator for LCN in 2003 and continue to grow and learn my skills through their extensive training. And became a National Trainer in 2011.
