Native of Santa Rosa, I have always loved making people look & feel their best when looking in the mirror. Keeping up with the latest trends and hair fashions as a young adult, I knew the beauty industry was the path to my future.
Licensed since 1989 and working in a few elite Santa Rosa hair salons, I dedicated myself to extensive education to become an expert in hair color and then an educator for Goldwell hair color company in 2001. While continuing my education in hair fashion, hair cutting and hair coloring, I’ve attended many hair and business related seminars, learning the art and science of the beauty industry.
In 2004, I envisioned creating a team of like-minded professionals, that shared my passion, and they are dedicated to furthering their education and growing in this industry as well. That same year, I took the first step to becoming a salon owner and opened Dolce Vita Salon east of downtown Santa Rosa. After 12 years operating a large salon in the Rincon/Bennet Valley area I decided to take my years of learning and fine-tuning of my vision to a newer location in Santa Rosa. In 2016, Dolce Vita purchased it’s life long home @ 614 College Ave.
