Me?  Well... it is a long story!  But I will make it as short and sweet as possible.  I grew up in a small town in Ohio, therefore love the Buckeyes by the way.  I am the youngest of four children, and my oldest sister happens to be an amazing hair and makeup artist!  In hopes to be like her and to find a place for my passion in the arts and people, I moved to Atlanta in 2006 where she lived, to pursue cosmetology school and join the MAC team to learn and grow in the hair and makeup world.  Luckily, the city I chose to live in (thanks to my big sis!) also soon became one of the largest film industry hubs in the U.S.!  I began my career as a CNN hair and makeup artist, which started me on a path with stops at commercial sets, more television networks, movie sets, weddings, and so on and so forth.  I still work with CNN to this day, and still provide my skills to several different television and film productions when the opportunities arise.  However, in the midst of my time in Atlanta, I found my future husband, conveniently named West (also in the film industry) and a phenomenal photographer and film maker which you can see more of at www.hickorygrovepictures.com!  I slowly began twisting his arm to move to the mountains with me.  Lucky for me, he had family out in Colorado and loved to visit them, so we packed up his truck, made it into a little home, and began our road trips out West as often and for as long each time as we could.  This brought us to Salida.  This precious little mountain town in the Arkansas Valley.  We fell in love with it.  We sold our house in Atlanta and packed up our fur children.  Told our clients that we were off to a new life, and made the move in 2017!  We officially got hitched in January 2019 and have been enjoying our sweet life in this beautiful place counting our blessings every day and feeling proud of ourselves for being brave enough to make this change and tough enough to make it work.  Being a hair and makeup artist and working on weddings with people on their happiest day is just another amazing part of this life that I feel so lucky to have.
