Like many estheticians, my journey started when I was facing skincare challenges of my own. After struggling with my skin for almost 2 years with no help after seeing multiple dermatologists and trying many new skincare products— I was frustrated. Drawing from my own experiences, I understand the impact that skin conditions can have on your self-esteem. I hope to share my knowledge and empower others in their skincare journey, helping them achieve healthy, radiant skin.
Outside the treatment room, I enjoy watching hockey, going to boxing sessions with my trainer, practicing yoga, going to the gym and cherishing the moments spent with my friends and family, while also dedicating time to expanding my knowledge in esthetics and pursing a nursing career.
Throughout the course of my life I suffered from cystic acne which led to many insecurities as a teenager. My curiosity for healing skin led into my passion and now I’m able to efficiently help others on their journey that took me so long to figure out myself. Becoming an esthetician allowed me to not only take care of my own skin, but help others achieve healthy, glowing skin as well. The most rewarding part about my job is helping my clients feel their best and look their best. Your face is one of the most essential parts of who you are, which is why my services provide quality care and treatments for every skin type. I strive to personalize every experience offered and guide my clients on how to keep their skin healthy and fresh at home as well as with me.
Like so many other estheticians, I found my passion in skincare through my own skin issues and obstacles. Through my personal struggles I have learned so much about both holistic and medical approaches, because I believe there is a time and place for both. I pride myself on being familiar with all skin tones and types, and being able to help anyone that walks into my treatment room. I always say that the path to great skin is 20% professional care, and 80% home care, with good, clean, customized ingredients and routines. I hope to help others learn their skin needs and wants the same way I learned mine!

For as long as I can remember beauty, self care, and overall health have been very important to me. Like many, the world of skincare was opened to me while I was enduring my own struggles with inflammatory acne and eczema. I devoted so much of my time to learning about ingredients, trying new products and the latest skincare trends, and researching treatments that could improve my skin’s health. My experiences with my skin only further intensified my passion and led me to falling in love with esthetics. My goal as an esthetician is to not only create a safe and comforting space for my clients in the treatment room but to also help you build an at home regimen that will cater to your skin’s needs and leave you feeling and looking your best!
Growing up in a family where skin cancer was incredibly prevalent, I got an interest in skin at an early age. I enjoyed the process of healing my chronically sensitive and reactive skin as much as I enjoy working with clients to achieve their skin goals. Coming from a medical spa background I look at skin in a very clinical way to achieve lasting results. As for a little more about me, outside of work I enjoy learning about history, stand up comedy, and powerlifting.
Cystic hormonal acne was the only thing that truly depleted my confidence. I couldn’t even look people in the eye. And that’s why skin is so important to me. After several years in the industry, the one comment I always despised was to “just wash your face” to help acne or blackheads. Let me tell you, I wish it were that simple. That’s why getting to know your life style and routine gives me a better way to dive into the real root of why your experiencing reactions. Not only will you receive clean and glowing skin, you will also gain knowledge about ingredients, products, services, and your specific skin needs. Book a facial with me and let’s get you feeling confident in your skin!
