Everyone thinks I’m a “girly girl” but deep down I LOVE football; especially when my favorite team (the Wolfpack) pulls out a win against the Tarheels.
My pit bull Teagan and my schnoodle Lulu; I love spending my weekends with her running around or vegging out on the couch.
“If you’re not making mistakes, you’re not taking risks, and that means you’re not going anywhere. The key is to make mistakes faster than the competition so that you have more chances to learn and win.” – John W. Holt, Jr.
Best Celebrity hair
Gwen Stefani, Julia Roberts, Cara Delevingne, and Julianne Hough.
Favorite place to grab a bite
Poole’s Diner- I’ve tried everything but must have the mac and cheese every time!
Love about Samuel Cole Salon
I love being a part of a company that is so involved with the hair industry. SCS supports it’s stylists in taking their career on their individual paths. And of course, loving the people that I work with helps!
