Twenty-three of my twenty-seven years in the ballroom industry have been spent as a professional competitor in both the American Smooth and Rhythm divisions. With numerous Rising Star titles and having become a top twelve finalist in 2001 and 2002, I retired my pro digs and created Glamour Puss.
Doing hair and makeup has been a talent since I was old enough to wear cosmetics and make decisions about my own hair. I never missed a chance to get dressed up! I would do makeup and hair for the students of my professional partners to "help out", not realizing this would become my new career!
I was "discovered" by one of my coaches who told me I was to put an ad together and present it to her in a week. One thing led to another and I found myself mentored by Linda Doyle who, with great patience, took me under her wing, showed me the ropes, and gently nudged me onto the competition circuit allowing me to work some of the smaller events alone and continue to work the larger events with her.
I have been in business for eleven years now and continue to teach ballroom in between my travels. I provide my services to twenty-eight competitions per year (see Schedule for more information on this year's schedule). You may schedule your appointments via e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) or through my home office (302-323-1933).
