I was born…

in Denver, Colorado

My favorite thing about Arizona…

the sun and the people. I love that Arizona is the melting pot of the country. Most people I meet are from somewhere else and now call Arizona home.

I’m listening to…

I love all types of music from classic rock to techno and even country music is growing on me. Songs with meaning tend to resonate most with me.

My family…

has been challenging, but I have been blessed. I was adopted at the age of 2 and my “dad” has been my mentor and best friend ever since. The rest of my family is resides all over the country.

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be…

Mathew McConaughey- he is my TV boyfriend. All kidding aside, Anthony Mascolo, an award-winning hairdresser and international creative director of TIGI would be at the top of my list. I love the way he empowers people. I try to do the same with everyone I meet.

One thing I cannot live without…

is my sense of humor. Everyone takes things so seriously. But I find if you can laugh at things it makes every situation better.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

a hair dresser. From the age of 5, I would sit on my dads lap and put burettes in his hair and tell him, “When I grow up I want to be a hair dresser.” By the age of 12, I was cutting my entire family’s hair.

I’m inspired by…

my dad. He has always been supportive and encouraging. He has always told me I can do anything I put my mind to!

The one person who motivates me is…

everybody motivates me in one way or another. Some motivate me to do the things I need and want to do, some motivate me to stay positive and forget about the things that are not important.

If I could change anything in the world, it would be…

abuse! Mostly to helpless children and animals.

The perfect day would be…

winning the “NAHA” North American Hairstyling Awards with my Athena Hairstyling Team.

My first job was…

Baskin Robins. Yes, I was an ice cream scooper.

My favorite escape…

a drive in the mountains or a day at the beach. Actually, 7 Days on the beach.

My life…

I make women look and feel more beautiful than they already are. I choose to focus on the good things and the good in people. As the owner of Athena Hair Extensions and working with hundreds of stylist all over the country, I try to empower them to be all they can be. It’s a lot of work but I love it.

I’m currently working on…

Developing the best hair extension company in the country. We want to develop a company that attracts the “best of the best”: the best stylist and educators who share a passion for the industry. By doing this we can develop the best client experience from the initial consultation to the take out process.

Always…

be honest and truthful to yourself and others.

Never…

judge, everybody has a story and a past.

Favorite Quote…

I’m a brave, intelligent, tenacious, creative, honest. I Own It” Tabatha Coffey, TV personality from Bravo’s Tabatha Takes Over, best selling author, stylist and entrepreneur.

Biggest Dream…

is to have 1,000 stylist in the country using Athena Hair Extension. To have each of those stylist making a difference in the word, one person at a time. Together we can touch so many in a positive way.

My Pet Peeve(s)…

are false promises.
