“Life’s a journey. Whatever your industry or field is, you should have a deep passion for what you do. When I have either a long time client or meeting one for the very first time, I love making them feel comfortable in my chair. It’s important for me to get to know who they are and what they are seeking for their style. Trust is so important and style can be a very personal thing, and when I “nail it” for my client and have them love it, that’s huge for me.. That’s why I do this.”
