Some of my earliest and favorite memories were visits to my grandma’s salon as a little girl. Every day was a celebration of beauty, friendship, family and life. What I remember the most is watching some of the women hustle in, drop their purses, plop down in a chair and let out an exhale, finally able to escape the stress of the day and life, even if just during that appointment.
As an esthetician, I feel so lucky that I’m able to honor those happy memories and that I’ve found a career that allows me to play even a small role in the powerful stories of the women I get to meet. When you come into my treatment room, you can leave the weight of your world outside the door, because during your appointment you are safe, cared for and everything is going to be ok, even if just for an hour.
I’ve spent the last decade cultivating my passion for helping woman feel beautiful and my own experiences in life have shaped my areas of expertise. As a working mom to two young boys and wife to a dedicated police officer, I know how easy it is to let your own self-care fall to the bottom of your priority list. I’ve learned that when I take the time to care for myself, I am able to show up the best version of me for those I care about most, including my clients.
As a big sister to four younger brothers who have experienced acne at some point in their lives, I also have a special place in my heart helping teens manage their problematic skin.
Prior to entering the beauty industry, I spent a decade living and breathing customer service in the restaurant industry, which is where my passion for interacting with people was ignited and my foundation for developing and exceeding guest expectations was laid.
Throughout the years, I have always been drawn to a life of wellness and beauty. I love to dance, practice yoga and Qoya, attend women's circles and am happiest when I’m spending time outside, enjoying the nature’s beauty.
In 2008, I made my passion for beauty official upon graduating from Federico Beauty Institute in Sacramento, California. After gaining experience and advancing my education in the field, I returned to Federico in 2010 as an Instructor, where I found an even deeper passion for learning and sharing knowledge. I have continued teaching and offering advanced workshops for the past 9 years.
Educating inspires me to stay up to date on industry information, allows me to create a supportive learning community and gives me the satisfaction of watching others excel at a craft that has brought so much joy to my own life.
I believe that we are all uniquely beautiful and, when we feel beautiful, magical transformations can happen in our lives. That’s why I’ve undergone continuous advanced training and offer personalized services to keep my clients looking and feeling their best: microdermabrasion, skin correction peels, customized spa facials, full body waxing, eyebrow shaping and permanent makeup.
There’s nothing I love more than empowering women to honor themselves and to take on the world with healthy, beautiful skin.
I look forward to meeting you and being a part of your beauty journey!
I would love the opportunity to help you feel as beautiful as you are and put your best face forward. You're just one click away from healthy skin and head to soul beauty.
