Esthetician/Make Up Artist
I have been a licensed Esthetician since 2011. I have a strong passion for skin care and making people feel good and confident about themselves and their appearance. My goal for every client is to educate them before, during and after their treatment about their skin and home care.
In addition to my training at Tricoci University, I have attended several advanced classes at the Aveda Institute in Chicago. The continuing education has given me guidance and knowledge that compliments the ability to provide the right treatment for each individual person. I love learning about new products and techniques to make my clients experience more effective and enjoyable.
