When did you start at UB, or when did we meet?
I started at Urban Betty in April 2022. I moved back to Texas from Chicago specifically to work at UB! I had achieved many career dreams in Illinois. I worked my way to the top in an Aveda salon, ran my salon business/suite, and traveled all over Chicago as a brand ambassador for Amika. I wasn’t done yet—I had to work at THE top salon in Austin, my Texas dream salon 🤍

When and where did you graduate from?
I graduated from The Aveda Institute of Austin in 2012.

What did you want to be when you grew up?
I never knew what I wanted to be. I attended Lonestar Community College of Kingwood & Austin Community College for general studies. I sat at a desk, miserable and bored, knowing I’m a talker who can’t sit still. I only liked science and art—get me out of here, lol. Turns out there’s a school for that! Cosmetology 🤍 My artsy, creative, science brain can run free, and I can laugh and talk all day long without getting in trouble for it like in school 😂✏️🎨

Where are you from?
I was born in Arkansas and moved to Kingwood, Texas when I was 4.

What do you like to do outside of work?
I love to play my banjo and attend music lessons & banjo camps. I also love to fish and hunt, eat crawfish, and travel.

If you could be a superhero, what would your superpower be?
I’m going invisible, for sure. I have too much luggage to carry, so flying powers wouldn’t work for me.

Any side hustles or other accounts you are a part of and would like me to include.
I also model and act on the side! I trained with World Premier Artists and have appeared in multiple music videos. Kennimer Co. is the favorite brand I’ve worked with, located here in Austin. If you’re ever looking for the perfect hat or outfit tailored to you, check them out! 🤍
