My journey in the skincare profession started as a curious patient. I visited numerous dermatologists, looked on Pinterest for a DIY solution, and spent days on end searching through Google for an answer. Nothing seemed to fix the acne problems I had- which I'd had since middle school. I began looking for alternative options and learned about an opportunity to enroll in school for Esthetics. I went into class on day one determined to find the answers needed to help my skin, but throughout the courses, I discovered my true passion. This is what I was born to do.
I learned how rewarding it is to watch someone’s confidence completely change because of the skin care treatments and products you’ve provided them. I began to find joy in helping create that confidence. Starting as a frustrated patient, I know the stress that can come with breakouts, and I give every client the same care I would expect for myself.
After school I continued expanding my education, becoming certified in dermaplaning, advanced chemical peels, and lash lifts. I have also done dozens of trainings to better educate myself on skin conditions, the most effective way to treat them, and intensive ingredient knowledge courses. I am a proud member of the ASCP Skin Care Professionals Organization.
When I am not in the treatment room or attending a training, I enjoy spending time with my husband Philip, two kids, and our fur baby Zoe. We enjoy hiking, going to the beach, trips to Charleston, SC and sipping on margaritas!
