Le Bon Temps Boutique is the goal I never thought I would hit. I started my hairstyling career with Regis Corporation in 2009 as a stylist at Hair Plus in Sumter Mall. I soon became the manager later that year and my career took off! Through education of the company and of the industry, I became interested in all aspects of hair care. In 2013 I became a District Leader and managed Hair Plus as well as 4 Smartstyle managers. I enjoyed mentoring my stylists so much, I became deeply interested in education. In 2015 I began training to become an Artistic Director. Throughout this journey with Regis, I became passionate as a stylist and a mentor for others. I feel education is the key to success in all you do and I feel I can now give other stylists the freedom of creativity that I began to become hungry for in this journey. This is how Le Bon Temps Boutique was created. I believe all stylists can be great together through great leadership, motivation, education, and a fun team environment.

If you didn't hear, I'm from New Orleans and will always call NOLA home. I enjoy a good party and like to have a good time (hence the salon name "The Good Time Shop" translated from French). Sorry, I don't actually speak French but I do enjoy learning about my Creole heritage and digging deep into the stories through family. Speaking of family, I am a boy mom of 2 (3 if you count my Cane Corso) and a current Air Force wife but not going anywhere soon. I'm here to stay to service your curls whether you like to smooth them out, cut them often, or wear them wild and colorful like me!
