How did I get into this business? 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 (

I am a born and raised Oregonian who loves to travel, but always finds my way back home.

How did you get into this business? While I was still attending college to study psychology, my heart led me to a local school specializing in Esthetics. I immediately knew I had to fulfill that space in my heart because deep down, I knew I would be happier. I have always had a natural passion for wellness.
I began to truly focus on a holistic approach to caring for the skin when I had acne and started making and using natural products to treat my problem skin. The more I learned and experienced, the more I was intrigued and

How did you get into this business? I am deeply drawn to fields of work that foster meaningful connections and provide a service that improves the wellbeing of others, no matter how big or small that service may be. My original plan was to work in elementary education and do freelance makeup artistry on the side. However, the more learned about the skin, the more I fell in love with the skincare aspect of esthetics.
After getting my Bachelors degree from PSU’s school of social work, I realized that not only did I want to eventually pursue other forms of social service jobs besides education, but I also wanted to take a break from that field in

When I’m not doing skincare + sugaring, I’m… in the thick of it with my husband, raising our two young children (not to mention the chihuahuas) trying to keep everyone fed, clean, and happy. I also believe firmly that a good mother is a happy mother, so when I’m able to, I love to spend time with my friends, enjoying a sunny patio or a restorative pedicure. My husband and I love music, and we love to get out together to see shows as much as possible.
