Becoming my own boss was the best thing to happen to me.  Not only did I more than double my income but I found this whole new passion for what I do behind the chair that I never knew existed.  I love being in my own personal space where I can create an experience from start to finish.


Summer 2013 I opened up Dolce Vita as a way to help stylists achieve their dream of owning their own salon. I’m so happy to help empower men and women to become entrepreneurs and start their own business. I work alongside all the stylists so I know exactly what a stylist wants and needs to be successful. Since I was a small child, I always knew I wanted to do hair and own my salon someday.  I graduated from University of Northern Iowa with a BA in Marketing/Management. I went to cosmetology school in Scottsdale, Arizona at Kohler Academy, which is the only Bumble and Bumble school in the world. I have also taken classes in New York for the latest & greatest techniques of hair painting. I have been doing hair since 2009 and would love the opportunity to work with you!
