From Hair Stylist -> Salon Owner

I am the proud owner of UES. This salon existed in a different form before I purchased it and has evolved a few times since. I guess with Evolution in the name, it was destiny.

I have worked in the salon industry since 1997. I started as an apprentice in Kenosha, WI. (I am a midwestern girl).

After a 2 year false start there (beautiful salon, no formal training), I waited tables for a few years. I landed at a small Buckhead salon in 2001.

I apprenticed and was the sole assistant to 10 stylists who had all been in the business a decade or more. I had to be super self-starting, as I didn’t have any formal training there either, but I did have a beautiful salon family willing to nurture me in every way they knew how. I stayed with that salon until I moved out of state, but returned to work there when my life brought me back to the Atlanta area. While I was out of state, I got a chance to work at some amazing team-based salons and received a lot of advanced training. 

In 2016, I started to get a little restless and thought I was ready to leave the industry. I was back at the Buckhead salon booth renting and I was mildly successful, but not as successful as I could have been if I had had someone to call me to my greatness. I started dreaming about salon ownership and fate led me to UES. I was offered the opportunity to buy the salon and jumped at the chance. 

On a more personal note, I am a mom of 2. I live in Marietta. We have 2 dogs and 2 cats. I love hiking, camping, and anything outdoors. I practice meditation and I am a reiki practitioner. I also coach salons around the country as a professor for PIP University. I believe that we are all capable of greatness and get my rocks off watching others succeed. You might catch me saging the salon every once in a while or talking about crystals. I love my team and this gorgeous industry that I get to be a part of.
