I love the sun (way more than any esthetician should…), salsa dancing after a shot of tequila, and convening with nature for grounding and inspiration. I’ve been an esthetician for 10 years and view each and every facial as a chance to make someone’s day, week, or month just a little (ok, a lot) more pleasurable. I had acne growing up and it was a big slap to my self-esteem. Everyone told me to do something different and none of them seemed to really know the root of my condition. After receiving my Master’s Degree in Social Work, I went on to study Esthetics in Illinois (750 hour training program). I quickly realized that the skin was more than skin-deep, and I threw myself into the study of energy work and Chinese medicine (including training in holistic nutrition and herbs).
