How social media changed my life: When I was first building, I had to completely discount my work. I had no Instagram following, no Facebook, no anything. It took me over a year to build myself in California. I recently moved to Austin and booked myself out six weeks in less than three months because of my following. I receive at least 2-3 referrals a day and have created quite the empire for myself!

The first time I was featured on MODERN SALON: My heart leaped! I was so excited to see my hard work recognized by such an influential brand. The impact was amazing. Not only did my following grow, but I received clients from it, too!
