Hi there! I am a single mom with an 8 year old son. My son is everything to me and since having him I have become quite an ambitious lady. I want him to grow up knowing that you can accomplish anything if you put your mind to it. I decided that instead of giving up on my dreams, I would try even harder. I am passionate about a lot of things but it all boils down to putting kindness out in to the world. I have the talent and ability to have become quite successful as hairstylist and I wanted to use that opportunity to open my own salon and shop. A place where I can nurture my employees and clients with the kindness they deserve. The success of my business will ultimately lead to my being able to fulfill my dream of starting a charitable organization and helping other single moms who may not be as lucky as me. In the meantime, owning my own business means I can do things my way. From the perspective of a woman and a mother. It is a great challenge and I am so thrilled and grateful to be on this journey.
