OUR  TEAM

OWNER & STYLIST

I am the proud owner of Green Papaya Salon and even more proud to work with an amazing group of stylists! I have been in this ever evolving industry for over 15 years and having the opportunity to make someone feel beautiful about themselves fuels my passion everyday - but to me, the ultimate compliment is someone else complimenting my work! I strive to keep up with the latest techniques and have traveled across the U.S. to become a Moroccan Oil expert and specialize in updos. When I’m not making people feel beautiful, I love being a mom to my two handsome boys and two fur babies!

STYLIST & EXTENSION MASTER

As a master certified extension and volume specialist, I thrive on staying educated to help my clients live out their hair dreams! Being fortunate enough to learn from some of the industry’s best such as Chris Appleton, Briana Cisneros, Larisa Love, and Lo Wheeler, after 12 years my passion for what I do has only gotten stronger! The best part? Helping my clients reveal the glow of their own natural beauty and confidence

STYLIST

One of my main priorities as a stylist for the last 6 years, has been using my knowledge to educate clients on the healthiest options for their hair! Because of that, my focus is in natural, sun-kissed color, balayage, and grey blending! Outside of the salon, I love spending time with my husband, Tyler and our sweet Goldendoodle, Camp, and am currently working on my Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration!

STYLIST & MAKEUP ARTIST

People always ask me,  "if you had to choose between hair and makeup, which one would you choose?"“ And all I can say is, thank God I'm in an industry that allows me to do both of my passions! Not only do I take pride in forming lifelong relationships with my clients, but also in staying educated and learning new techniques, even traveling to Atlanta to become certified in French hair cutting! When my weekends aren't booked with weddings and special events, you can find me spending time with my family and little boy!

STYLIST

With over 13 years experience, I’ve developed a love for everything from low maintenance color and haircut transformations, to enhancing a haircut with subtle texturizing and everything in between! I love not only staying educated with things such as Brazilian Blowout, but also being part of a team that inspires me to do my best! When I’m not making clients feel beautiful, you can find me spending as much time as possible with my family and beautiful daughter!
