education director

this sicilian curly-headed georgia girl is all things southern! born in augusta, raised in statesboro and adulting in marietta, she's the epitome of a girl raised in the south. steph, as her true salon|spa family call her, has been in the industry for more than 20 years.

she started her career at an Aveda salon in statesboro and while attending a class in atlanta, met a few stylists from the newly opened true, an Aveda Lifestyle Salon|Spa. when she decided to move to cobb county a couple years later, she knew exactly where she wanted to land. she's been part of our family for more than 16 years and as our education director, she is one of the leads on the education board at true.

steph has been a mentor and an educator for the past 10 years. she loves teaching techniques she's learned over the years, as well as seeing our most junior stylist's faces light up when they understand the concept she's sharing and revels in their excitement as they put their new skills to use. her true specialty is cutting and it shows in her versatility from classic bobs to long face framing layers. with a passion for cutting and her southern way, she says, "there's just something so satisfying about watching hair change right before your eyes."

coming from a family of hairdressers, her mother and grandmother inevitably passed both passion and the hair gene on to steph. she has the drive and dedication to give you "the" a haircut that will have you leaving the salon feeling better than ever and already excited about your next appointment.

as our education director, steph is responsible for developing and facilitating training programs for stylists and apprentices, helping to develop ongoing curriculum and coordinating the education calendar.
