My career in the beauty industry started as a salon receptionist when MCV Salon opened in 2001. After completing the cosmetology program at the Aveda Institute Chicago, I obtained my professional license in 2006. The first ten years of my career were spent in Chicago teaching and leading at the Aveda Institute. In 2013 I was certified as an Aveda Hair Cutting Purefessional Educator and spent 5 years teaching and training stylists in Aveda salons regionally. I relocated back home to Wisconsin and have been a happy hair stylist at MCV Salon since 2015. Concurrently with my step-mom Mary’s retirement in 2018, my husband and I became business partners and owners of MCV Salon.
