It all started back in 2011 when I was hired as an apprentice at Balance Hair & Body; I was able to grow my clientele and build my foundation for a successful career. 

 

In 2014 I created my own small business independently operating within Balance Hair & Body. I became my own boss, receptionist, promoter, accountant, web page designer and stock/retail manager. It's all so rewarding, I love every aspect of it!

 

Flash forward to 2019 I outgrew my location and knew it was time to make one of my biggest dreams come true. I left the one and only salon I had ever worked at seeking the experience of a different salon culture at Mindful Style to better round myself before my next big career move. This year I am on the hunt for a space to open up my own business HUSH Salon, Spa & Boutique!

October 1st 2019 my biggest dream of becoming a salon owner finally became my reality. I am so incredibly lucky to be surrounded by some amazing and talented salon and spa professionals in a beautiful one of a kind federal style building.

 

Industry education is what fuels my passion. I love attending trade shows and classes and tuning into the unlimited professional hairstylist content available online. I eat, sleep and breath HAIR!

Outside of the salon I enjoy life with my husband and two dogs, Baxter and Katahdin, on our 9 acre small farm in Bucksport. 

 

During the warmer months we keep busy growing hops, tending to 3,500sq ft of gardens, canning, raising meat birds and egg laying chickens. In the cooler months hubby is either harvesting trees for firewood or battling the snow around our property and mile long driveway while I'm in the kitchen prepping meals for our 4 chest freezers and cooking up some simple, yet delicious dishes that we grew ourselves. 

 

We're fairly new homeowners and are working on renovating our home and land, doing all of the work ourselves. If we ever have free time we love sneaking in some camping, hiking, waterfoul hunting, fishing and kayaking!
