she believed she could so she...did the damn thing.


One brutal Chicago winter and a lot of spray tans,my business began...

I would go to homes or offices using public transit slinging my tan equipment. The truth? I was self funded, self taught and in full-on hustle mode. In Chicago snow, door to door businesses are tough as hell and the things that got me through were how good I was helping clients feel about themselves and mental toughness. I'm in awe of what the people of this city helped me build. Through word of mouth referrals and good ol' Yelp, we keep thriving after nearly a decade.

The birth of Glowout

I loved connecting with my clients and the intimate experience of getting to know them in their element. Those early years inspired me to create a home of my own as cozy as the ones I would visit for even more girls to enjoy! Thus, Glowout was born. A unique one stop beauty shop! We now have a Glowouts in Chicago and South Carolina with more in the works. My dream is to keep building beauty houses for women to get pretty and maybe a little chatty, together. I believe positive girl time is everything.

Over the last 10 years building businesses, the most pivotal thing I keep learning is to continue to build yourself.

When I focus on that my team and my businesses BOOM. I serve everyone I touch in a more authentic and loving way. I'm not here to teach you a secret formula to success, although I hope to share some great tips. I simply want to share what I'm learning and offer you a cozy space to learn yourself.

With love,
