MEET THE TEAM
owner / esthetician / renaissance woman
At this time, Anna performs only the following services: Unicorn Facials, 60 minute LED or Microderm Facials, Ultimate Anti-Aging Trio Facials and Initial Acne Facials.
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 someones day, week or month just a little (ok, a lot) more pleasurable.
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 (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).
When I’m not doing skincare + sugaring + biz-running I’m: Cuddling with my 2 dogs & my hubby, escaping Portland in the Winter and doing cool Psychic stuff over at annalongstokes.com.
What kind of ‘Portland Girl’ are you? The kind that wears bright red lipstick to dress up yoga pants and sucks at gardening but loves getting her hands dirty!
About me: I was born and raised in Idaho, but moved around to Massachusetts and Seattle before settling in Portland. I’ve been here 15 years now and love what this city has to offer!
When I’m not at The Portland Girl I’m: Gardening, hanging out with my family and friends, or attempting to make music in my home studio.
What kind of ‘Portland Girl’ are you? The kind that loves any and all outdoor adventure, and is so glad to live in proximity to both the mountains and the ocean! The rainy season has been the hardest part of Portland for me to adapt to, but it’s given me an opportunity to cultivate and appreciate the coziness of my home.
esthetician / team coordinator
About me: I was born in Eugene but have lived in Portland my whole life. I’ve always loved skin care, and as a little girl I was obsessed with DIY face masks and mini spa days. it’s been so rewarding pursuing a career in esthetics to help others look and feel their best.
When you’re not at The Portland Girl, you’re … planning a vacation, going out to eat, or spending the day at the Oregon coast. If I’m staying home, it’s lots of red wine and trash reality tv!
What kind of Portland Girl are you? A social one! I spent years bartending and serving in the Portland food scene, and I love spending an afternoon visiting all my favorite spots.
esthetician / team trainer
About me: I was born and raised in Michigan. I have lived in Nebraska, California and I’m now a new Portland baby as of 2013 with my husband. I am a dog mom and have 3 parrots who are my everything. I absolutely love living in Portland. Being able to go outside and see mountains in my backyard will never get old. My husband and I are having so much fun running around the city, trying new foods and restaurants, meeting new people and exploring Oregon. I enrolled in full Cosmetology and when the time finally came to learn about skincare, I was hooked and loved every minute of it. I would try to spend as much time as I could in the spa, performing facials, massaging, and waxing bodies. After graduating, I stumbled upon sugaring, took a leap and enrolled in a training seminar and had so much fun learning the technique and immediately fell in love. I knew this is where I was meant to be.
When I’m not doing skincare + sugaring I’m: Sitting on my couch with cereal watching cartoons on Netflix, taking my dog to the park, laughing with my husband, coloring/cutting my friends hair, playing video games, and singing to my parrots.
What kind of Portland girl are you? A huge nerd. I love video games, comics, superheroes, toys, stuffed animals, cartoons, all of it. My room is covered in collectibles, posters, I’ve dressed up and gone to Comic-Con, and every month I go out with the Portland Geek Girls Brunch. I am a girl who loves makeup, bright colors, pretty dresses, tattoos, piercings, dogs, birds, flowers, rain, and much much more.
esthetician / team trainer
About Me: I grew up with my face always stuffed in a book, in a tiny town in Northern Michigan. Not much has changed since then–I will always love a good story!
How did you get into this business? I had acne when I was younger and my search for a ‘cure’ led me through years of independent research–and eventually to esthetics school. I believe that how we look is deeply intertwined with how we feel, and I want to help people to feel like their best and most confident self.
When I’m not doing skincare + sugaring, I’m… Probably hitting the gym! I also play D&D weekly, and collect different varieties of succulents.
What kind of Portland Girl are you? The kind that rides her bike everywhere, cracks cheesy dad jokes, and always stops to poke at interesting plants.

About Me: I originally hail from a farm in southern Ohio, but moved to Chicago when I was 18 and lived there for thirteen years. I came to Portland three years ago in search of warmer winters, new experiences, and the natural beauty that Oregon has to offer. I became interested in aesthetics after growing up with acne and trying and failing to conceal it with an inch of makeup, which led me to learning about skincare and how unique and fascinating the human body is.
When you’re not at The Portland Girl, you’re… Spending time with my husband and daughter at home with our 17 year old cat Kittytown, USA or attempting a new hike with a baby strapped to my chest.

esthetician / team coordinator
About Me: The first time I ever visited Portland I fell in love, I knew right away this is where I was going to move. I love all the different neighborhoods, great food, live music, and outdoor activities. I’ve traveled around the country and this is still one of my favorite places.
When I’m not at the Portland Girl: I’m out going to shows. I love the music scene here, you can find a great, or not so great, show every night of the week. I’m always hungry so most likely I’ll be eating delicious food at all hours of the day. I love going for walks, there’s always so much more to see when you take the time to walk. But of course stopping at all the vintage and thrift shops along the way. I also love going to yoga, hanging with friends, reading, watching movies, and just sitting around doing nothing every once in a while.

About Me: Hailing from Austin, Texas. I came to Oregon looking for change and to escape the heat. Being only two hours from mountains or the beach and constantly surrounded by greenery was an ideal situation.
When I’m not at the Portland Girl: Eating fried chicken, thrifting, traveling and searching for the perfect dive bar.
guest services associate

guest services associate
About Me: I grew up in Northern California, near Lake Tahoe, and then moved down to San Luis Obispo for a few years. After a short while, I missed the trees, so I made my way up here, and I am loving it! My experimental makeup journey began when I was about 12, and ever since then, it has been my passion. I love how fluid and inclusive the beauty industry is, and how there are always new and exciting products being discovered. I also love how really anyone and everyone can find their place in this industry due to its versatility and ever-changing boundaries.
When I’m not at the Portland Girl: When I am not studying, I am usually found hanging out with my plants, or out buying new plant friends! My three favorite things in this world are my cats, my plants, and my partner so I spend as much time around them as I can. During the summer, I do switch it up a little and spend a ton of time at the river or the lake, either rafting or swimming. I also love going out with friends, whether it be to a new bar, to the beach, or on another adventure!

Hard truth: The most perfect skincare routine in the world can’t make up for a crappy diet.
I know you’ve heard this before (especially if you’ve been reading The Portland Girl blog before now), but what you put in your body is just as important as what you put on your skin if you want a beautiful, glowing complexion.
The foods you eat affect not only how you feel, but how you look as well. Your diet can mean the difference between healthy, gorgeous skin that doesn’t take a lot of work to maintain and troubled skin that keeps breaking out or drying out no matter what else you try.read more
