I am a makeup artist and visibility coach based in Minneapolis and the Coachella Valley. I have been doing makeup for 12 years. During this time I realized that my love for makeup artistry wasn't just the makeup itself, it was the way I helped clients to bring their vision to life. My favorite ways to gather information about a client's needs are to ask them questions like "What are you trying to express with your look?" and "If you could say anything without having to use words, what would it be?" I have a people-first approach and take pride in genuinely connecting with who I work with. Because every person is different, I believe that the greatest gift that I bring to my work is the ability to listen and empower people to feel heard.
I graduated from Scot Lewis School of Cosmetology and became a licensed esthetician in 2010. Since then, I have traveled from Los Angeles to New York City and many places in between! My freelance experience includes world-renowned cosmetic houses such as MAC Cosmetics, Laura Mercier, Aveda, Cargo, Revlon, and Bare Minerals. I have also had my work published in Travel Brazil, Nostalgia, Moon Magazine and many others. My television credits include Travel Channel and Food Network with Andrew Zimmern and Brian Bowen Smith. I hold a special place in my heart for charitable organizations helping to empower single mothers experiencing homelessness and domestic violence as well as women and girls living with serious illnesses. Beauty isn't everything, but it is something that can bring joy, peace and power to our lives.
