"I pride myself on being efficient and always on schedule.  It is important to me that I respect my client's time and I believe each client should experience quality work and great customer service in a timely manner.  Prior to becoming an Avant color specialist I worked  
as an artist doing faux finishes in homes.  One of the reasons I enjoy being a color specialist is because just like faux painting I can see a blank canvas and make it into a work of art. I like  Aveda because it maintains the integrity of the hair without using harsh chemicals. I especially enjoy working with the Aveda color line because each client has a customized color that I have personally formulated."
