Small town girl
beauty lover

They loved fearlessly & gave generously (and they knew how to backcomb like a boss!)  People came from all over town just to spend the day there. I knew from early on that beauty came from within, and that we each have a unique way of expressing it. Because of that background, makeup became a second language and I made a career out of it. Right out of high school I went to beauty school -- never knowing where it would take me.

One thing I noticed was that small town beauty parlors were becoming a thing of the past, where women would gather, tell stories, and create friendships all in that tiny little space. So I set out to change that.

In 2014 I opened BOMA, a cozy skincare and makeup studio in the heart of Birmingham, AL, where I get to do what I love: facial treatments & makeup lessons with a small-town feel.

This year looks like telling more stories, creating more friendships, all the while using a curling iron & a great mascara!

my story

The best thing in life is

My mantra for life is                                             

I'm currently loving that                   

I wish the                                trend would go away forever.                                      

in the sunshine

doing what you love!

make each moment count!

possibilities are endless!

less is more

I see beauty as a way to connect with women, not as a weapon...
