"What I think most importnant, are my clients. Without them, I am nothing. The reason is the connection between them and me. The laughter, the tears. I have been there through new babies, marriages, and new jobs. I also have walked down the roads of sickness, divorces, and loss. Each appointment can bring something entirely new, but I wouldnt trade a single second of that for anything. I plan to work until my body can no more, and as long as I have my clients by myside, I will be happy."
Passionate. Experienced. Artistic.
