No feeling is better then than the feeling you get when you give from the heart. I became a hairdresser by default. I was hired as a massage therapist. I started my training in an apprenticeship program soon after my employment at Statements Salon and Spa. I have been with the company now since 2004. What drives me to be successful are the constant changes within the fashion and beauty industry. Working with other creative artists only encourages me to work with an open mind to learn different techniques. Not only do I learn from colleagues and continued education classes, but I learn the most from my clients. I love to hear what works and different tricks that clients teach me. This is what makes me unique. I talk through my client’s vision and bring it to life. My parents always reminded me as a child to always listen. To be a great friend you need to become a great listener. I was born and raised in Hawaii. And in my culture, friends become part of our family and we always take care of family. I am honest, funny and loyal. If you seek great hair while having a great time, my chair is the one for you.
