How social media changed my life: Professionally, social media motivates me to be my best. It provides a platform to easily share my passion for hair with others. The interactions I have with stylists via social media is rewarding and pushes me to keep progressing in my career.
The first time I was featured on MODERN SALON: I won the Lob Love contest close to a year ago. I’ll never forget that feeling of being tagged by @modernsalon. I actually let out a squeal and rushed to tell my husband the good news. I was honored. What a wonderful feeling!
