Her reputation for excellence along with her engaging personality and genuine love for people has built her an enduring beauty empire. 

Longevity and perseverance,a passion for the industry and a spirit of excellence were the perfect combination for her success when Eyelash Extensions were still a very new concept in the states. A pioneer and trailblazer by nature, she introduced the service to her city and state. Seeing a need for education and training in her local region, she sought out and found a lash company to join forces with and became a trainer, traveling the southern US and teaching excellence in lash artistry to many. Years later she struck out on her own, launching The Lash Queen Academy, offering instruction in Eyelash and Makeup Artistry and opening The Lash Queen Studios, a full service Lash and Aesthetics Spa. She and her team of experts offer their clients top notch artistry with a dedication to maintaining the health and integrity of the natural lashes.
