Working in the medical field most of my life, I witnessed how deficient care can result in damaged skin. When the pandemic hit, I became determined to protect my family and friends and be able to teach them ways to care for their skin and that’s when I began my studies in the beautification of the skin as an esthetician. While a medical doctor treats conditions such as skin infections, I work with you to highlight, maintain and protect the natural beauty of your skin. From skin clarification to skin tightening, we can find ways to enhance your natural beauty. I have a passion for personal service and I am committed to providing the highest level of customer service which will leave you glowing from in the inside out.
