Life can be tough, but at least you’re cute roughin’ it!
While most children would sleep in on Saturday mornings, I was already dressed, blocking the door with a face full of pitiful tears until my dad would finally sigh, “okay, come to the salon.” At just twelve years old, my desire to work hard began before I realized my purpose: to empower others by nourishing the internal beauty so that it may radiate externally through our appearance.
Within twenty years of the beauty industry, I graduated from UW Business School, owned multiple businesses including full service salon spas and restaurants. My greatest challenge has been moving forward from decades of abuse and trauma and divorce. Not only do I love the beauty industry, I also work with charities and non-profits focused on anti-human trafficking, ending violence against women, providing free healthcare and publishing voices of Vietnamese community via XC Magazine. Life is unpredictable, and I’ve learned that the best we can do is stay true to who we are.
Whether it’s your best or worst day, my intention is to create a safe space for you to just breathe. My purpose is to strengthen your confidence and create more freedom to show up powerfully in life. How you look impacts how you feel, and how you feel influences how you treat others. As beauty elevates the vibrations of the world, you inspire love and healing for everyone around you. After all, healed people heal people.
