“I always knew my dream job was to be a stylist”

From a young age, Kate always knew that her dream job was to be a stylist. Originally from Pennsylvania, Kate graduated from the Aveda institute in Orlando, Florida in 2011. She then stumbled across South Carolina while visiting family and fell in love with the area. Kate loves anything and everything outdoors, including hiking and playing volleyball, while spending time with her friends and family. Here at Ivy, Kate gets to exercise her creative talent on a daily basis, where she enjoys the peaceful environment and her guests more than anything! Kate’s favorite styling technique is messy, textured hair and balayage.
