Hair, what can I say! It’s an exciting and creative field full of bold beautiful people. I lived in Parker through all my school years and never left this amazing town. Graduating from Ponderosa High School (being the only option at the time) then attended The University of Colorado at Denver. I worked as a restaurant manager for the Pinery Country Club. After completing my Bachelors I acquired my insurance license and worked for Farmers insurance until my family opened the HairColorXperts in 2005. Working at the salon was the best job and most life experience I could hope for.
I have two beautiful curly hair daughters with my long time husband and best friend, Ron Gilbertson, who also attended most of his school years in Parker. We met as friends and co-workers at the old Wendy’s fast food (now Twisters). He is our computer genius in the salon if anything goes wrong. Being a good and loving mother is my first passion but I enjoy the occasional opportunities to fill in at the salon and reconnect with my second family of stylists and clients and one day soon hope to be in the salon on a more day to day bases.
There are many qualities and skills that go into being an excellent salon professional – integrity, consistency, reliability, in-depth community, market knowledge, and high-quality professional customer service.
After working at Galileo/Cendant for almost 18 years, my position was outsourced offshore (can you relate?) and I opened the HairColorXperts in Parker. The “client first” philosophy has always been my approach and it requires me to continually improve my skills and ways of doing business.
Originally from Des Moines, Iowa, my husband and I moved to Parker with our daughter, Cassandra, in 1988. We have two beautiful grand-daughters (Makayla Jo and Evyn Jo) and a terrific son-in-law, Ronnie. I love being with my family and friends. I also enjoy boating, fishing and swimming.
I urge you to personally contact me regarding your salon experience: firstname.lastname@example.org
The only time you will see me is if something needs to be fixed or I’am getting my hair colored (ok…I’m a little grey). I am the resident handyman and fixer-upper. If you don’t see me, listen; I will be whistling or singing without even knowing it. Or you may hear my contagious laughter.
My profession is sales; however, my passion is golf. I love to cook and most evenings you will find me on my deck with family and friends.
