Tell us a story of growing up:

I grew up with a brother and 4 close boy cousins. They taught me how to throw a punch and stick up for myself but I am a big softie.

Top 3 reasons you love what you do:

  1. Outstanding customer service is very rare and I am happily trying to change that.
  2. Making a difference one Hand Sanitizer at a time.
  3. Our salon network is so unique and passionate. I love that!

Why is IN important to you:

The beauty industry is filled with so much toxic junk. IN truly cares about each ingredient, where it is sourced, how it is made and how it makes you feel. THAT makes me feel beautiful!

What are your hopes for the beauty industry:

That each company is transparent and honest about what ingredients go inside their products.

Best part of being a part of IN?

We are a family and genuinely care about each other and passionate about the products we make.  

What are you most excited for in IN’s future?

Worldwide domination …no!? Okay, GROWTH!

Dad was never impressed by who people said they were. He was impressed by what you did. And that instilled a big work ethic in me.
