AC: In no more than 5 bullet pointed sentences - How did a little mid-west girl find yourself as a fabulous NYC/CT entrepreneur & owner of GMUA?


  • I've always known I wanted to do work I love. I love beauty, education & helping people...so...I think I succeeded. ; )
  • I come from a family of entrepreneurs/small business owners...it's in the DNA I guess!
  • Once, while feeling uncertain of my next big move, I spun a globe and set my finger down...it landed on NY. True story.
  • I like lobster & sail boats. Montana doesn't have lobster & sail boats.
  • I needed a new audience for all my amazing jokes & stories.

AC: What is your favorite part of completing a client's makeup?


The reaction :  ) the "Oh my gosh I LOVE it"...or the "WOW" and the "glow"/extra spring in the step after...I think looking good essential to helping you feel good, and it shows!

AC: Makeup aside, what other services do you offer keeping your clients looking absolutely amazing everyday?


As a licensed aesthetician (for 10 years now) I offer complexion perfecting facials & chemical peels, expert eyebrow shaping and to die for eyelash extensions.
