My career in the beauty industry started as a salon receptionist when MCV Salon and Spa opened in 2001. In 2005 I enrolled at the Aveda Institute Chicago for cosmetology. My next 10 years 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 stylists in Aveda salons regionally . I relocated back home to Wisconsin and been a happy hair stylist at MCV Salon since 2015. My husband and I now own the salon since Mary’s retirement in 2018. I now offer Platform Hair Extensions, making dreams of thicker and longer hair reality.
