She accepted her first position as a stylist at Cortos Salon in Buffalo before moving to Butler, Pennsylvania in 1983. Since that move, she was a stylist at a prominent salon in Butler and then made the decision to open her own salon. As a result, Local Motion opened it’s doors in 1986.

Education and advanced training have always been an important part of Angela’s professional outlook. She has been a platform artist, cutting and styling on stage, and has educated for Paul Mitchell Systems.

I consider myself very fortunate to go to work every day loving what I do! In my work life, I like to live by this quote…
