A little bit about me... I grew up in Boulder, CO and moved to Minneapolis to pursue my cosmetology license at the Aveda Institute. (I get told daily that I'm crazy for moving away from Colorado. Most days I don't disagree.) I am an animal lover, known rambler, coffee addict, can usually be found at a Pure Barre studio when I have free time (but who has that?!) and speak fluent sarcasm. I also hate long walks on the beach and am terrified of deep water.
I apprenticed under Kurt Kueffner in classic barbering techniques and assisted in launching the luxury men's brand, MENSDEPT., along with his business partner, David Raccuglia. In just a few short years we opened a successful 6-chair men's grooming salon in Minneapolis, developed a 300 page curriculum spanning tutorials and best business practices and produced a high end grooming line consisting of 8 targeted products.
After working with MENSDEPT. for many years, I was recruited by Andis Clipper Company to join their International Education Team. My role on the team was to help bridge the gap between Barber and Cosmetologist. We are not as different as some would lead you to believe.
Joining the Andis Team lead me to open my own private Hair Studio at Sola Salons in Uptown Minneapolis, giving me the flexibility to travel the world teaching classes while having the ability to provide my clients with a comfortable environment for their hair services.
I believe we should be in a constant state of learning to avoid growing stagnant. Continuing education in all varieties is part of my core being which lead me to accept the position of Global Education Manager for Andis Company in the Barber and Beauty division. This has taken me out from behind the chair and allows me to spread my knowledge and empower others to take their business to the next level. Whether that simply be in expanding their technical ability or diving deep into revamping business strategies. I am consistently taking what I learn in the field and producing new curriculum, some of which can be found at Master Barber School.
