What path brought you to Hotel Julien Dubuque? I came to Potosa Spa for the calming atmosphere and opportunity to utilize both my massage and cosmetology skills.
What are you most passionate about professionally? I really love the versatility of all the services I am able to perform but, what I am most passionate about is working with brides on their special day. I enjoy both styling and applying their make-up for what is one of the most important days of their life!
What are you passionate about personally? What is your favorite way to spend a free weekend? I am passionate about being outside and enjoying nature. My favorite way to spend the weekend is being with friends and family on the river.
What are some of your favorite things to do in the Dubuque area? Some of my favorite things to do in the Dubuque area would be anything on the water, whether it’s relaxing by the pool, boating, going on the beach, floating backwaters, or canoeing. I also enjoy four wheeling, bike rides, hikes, fishing, gardening and trying different restaurants.
What do you love most about Hotel Julien Dubuque? I love the diversity of clients we see come through the spa/salon. I enjoy hearing their stories of life experiences or places they have been or plan on going.
What is your personal motto? Travel as much as you can! And, always be humble and kind to others. You never know what some people are going through and you can make a difference just by being kind to others.
Describe your typical work day: My typical work day is different everyday depending on what services I have. I come in set up for everything. In between clients take laundry down and inventory.
