Born and raised in East Tennessee. I love what I do and I love the joy it brings other people. Inspiring others is my passion and I would love to share it with you! 


After aligning myself with an amazing company, Motives Cosmetics, I became a certified custom blend specialist focusing on offering customized products that are perfectly matched to your skin tone and type. As well as more recently becoming certified as a salon consultant. Which gives customized and personalized solutions for individuals and industry professionals that will allow them the opportunity to take advantage of the ever-changing beauty industry.


You'll find my work featured in multiple magazines, including Freque, Surreal Beauty, and more. As well as, featured and guest speaker for different webinars, makeup masterclasses, and featured articles. 


I'm always open to new challenges and projects I've had the pleasure of being a part of include photoshoots, fashion shows, film festivals, and helping others look their best for special occasions. I've worked Knoxville's Fashion Week for several years and was voted one of the top makeup artists in Knoxville's Best of the Best poll in Cityview Magazine in 2014.


As the preferred makeup artist with Flower Mountain Wedding (mygatlinburgwedding.com), I work with brides from all over the country to help make their big day run smooth and perfect. I, also, work with the everyday woman that wants to feel pretty lovely for a one of a kind boudoir photoshoot.


and finally, I am the assistant makeup manager at Dead Man's Farm, one of the top haunted houses in Tennessee. Specializing the ultimately scary with a small team of makeup artists alongside me and my other manager. (deadmansfarm.com )
