As the owner, my background extends beyond 18 years of financial service experience, catering to the growth of small businesses by providing solutions to help them stay in business. And that's how Fortees Salon & Spa was established. We revived an existing establishment, made it more appealing and created a broader need in the community.

The vision for Fortees is to fill the need for a salon that provides exceptional products and services in the east valley.  Striving to provide each and every one of our guests with inner wellness and outward beauty, along with relaxation, is what motivates us.

We love making a difference in the lives of our guests by providing services and utilizing organic products that are tailored to their health and beauty needs, which speaks to the professionalism and experience of our staff members.

Color Specialist 

I absolutely LOVE what I do and couldn’t imagine doing anything else!! Born and raised in Arizona, I grew up riding horses where I competed all over. I was actually a pretty big tom boy until a family friend gave me my first “makeover”, I  then became obsessed with makeup!!! After I graduated high school I went on to earn my aesthetic license. Shortly after I received a position at MAC Cosmetics where I worked for 7 years. I was blessed to have been able to work/ learn from some of the best artists in the country. I also have taken a few workshops... Mario Dedivanovic (Kim Kardashian’s makeup artist) to name one. Now, ten years later... I am still in love with what I do and am so grateful I get to share my love of makeup with you!
