Describe your business. Did you find it, or did it find you?
I worked for a local company for 10 years as a barber, and after they shut down I decided to take a leap of faith and go out on my own.
What was the first job you ever had, and what did you learn from the experience?
A car wash—I learned people skills and customer service.
How are you involved with both the community and your customer?
I like to donate to local events that raise money for worthy causes.
Why is your staff the best in the business?
Being that I am “the staff,” I’m on my game! Customer service is what I’m about. I have been doing this for just over 24 years. Being a seasoned barber gives me an edge over the competition in advanced fades and flattops. I take a lot of pride in my finished product and will go to great lengths to make people feel pleased with the service they receive.
What life accomplishments are you most proud of?
Being a mom, first and foremost; also, starting my own successful business, accumulating all of the wonderful friends and family I have, and being a part of the foothill bridges and Arco Arena construction as an apprentice carpenter.
Where do you go when the going gets tough?
I go to the auto mall—I love driving the latest muscle cars and checking out how they handle on turns.
What’s your hidden talent?
I can sing.
What’s your favorite place to eat out locally?
What’s your favorite childhood memory?
Being the first girl in northern California to play boys’ baseball.
