MEET THE TEAM
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.
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, but is equally happy hibernating in my cozy home when the rain forces me inside.
esthetician/team supervisor, reiki certified
About me: I am a born and raised Oregonian who loves to travel, but always finds my way back home.
How did I get into this business? Initially, I started cosmetology school with the intention of furthering my experience in makeup application. As I began delving into the practice and science of skincare, I immediately fell in love. I am a huge believer in self care and in all the ways that can be achieved. Being able to provide someone with a service that can give someone a moment of peace in this crazy world is so special to me.
When I’m not doing skincare + sugaring I’m: In rehearsal, on stage or working to get there. I have been acting since I was 15 years old and more recently have begun writing and directing shows as well.
What kind of ‘Portland Girl’ are you? I am an absolute night owl. I love going to shows, closing down restaurants, and staying up late watching my favorite tv shows with my best friends who also happen to be my sisters.
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.
About me: I was born and raised in Las Vegas, and moved to Portland shortly after my first visit back in 2016! I instantly fell in love with all the greenery and great food, and have continued to enjoy all the cool things this city has to offer since.
When I’m not at the Portland Girl: Enjoying dinner and game night with my boyfriend and friends, eating good food, or singing some karaoke!
What kind of Portland Girl are you? I’m the Portland girl that loves food! Other than pickles I’m down to try anything. I’m left-handed and I love singing (and have been lucky enough to travel internationally to do so) I’m also a crime TV junkie!
esthetician, reiki certified
About me: I am a new Mama to a little boy that lights up my life! I am an Oregon Coast native living in the SE pocket of Portland for just over 10 years. I love crafting + making, moving my body on a regular basis through hiking, yoga and dance as well as spending time in nature. I have a deep appreciation for my community and seek to make more sustainable and conscientious choices with each day.
How did you get into the business? I found skin care when I was hired on as the office coordinator for a day spa on the Oregon coast. I quickly fell in love and knew someday I would make a career out of it. I relocated to Portland, got stuck working in corporate work settings, continued to dream about Esthetics and a decade later, I found myself struggling with the idea of returning to another corporate job after a wonderfully long maternity leave spent with my baby boy. Upon returning to the work force I decided it was time to pursue my sincere interest and passion for skin care and embark on this exciting journey!
When I’m not doing skincare + sugaring: I’m getting outdoors in any capacity; hiking or simply taking a walk through one of Portland’s beautiful city parks. I also love being a homebody; drinking tea, striking a random yoga pose or busting a dance move, cooking or baking something, knitting and crafting. Making my kid laugh … or laughing at my kid – both are medicine.
What kind of ‘Portland Girl’ are you? I will forever love a rainy morning in the Pearl Room of Powell’s bookstore, seeing live music at one of the smaller venues in town, visiting any number of amazing thrift stores and farmers markets, afternoons spent wondering around Mt Tabor, and trying new eateries around town with many a friend.
About me: I was born and raised in Michigan. While attending The University of Hawaii, it was time to make a life change so I decided to move to Portland on a whim. I moved to this unique city in 2013 and have loved every experience this city has given me.
How did I get into this business? My interest in skin care and the beauty industry was heavily influenced by my mom. I was enamored by her very diligent skin care routine and treatments she often got done. After attending university for a couple of years I realized I was not passionate about traditional education and made the decision to go to school to be an esthetician. I finally found my passion and it was hidden within me the whole time!
When I am not at the Portland girl: You can catch me dancing at a concert, hanging out with my friends, thrifting, chowing down on some yummy food or probably day dreaming about the beach.
What kind of Portland girl are you? I am an easy going type of girl and just as spontaneous as the weather here in Portland! I’m always engaging in different hobbies and enjoying the different festivities this city has to offer.
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 amazed how the skin influences other organs and our immune system. Our bodies are deeply connected; by marrying plant-based skin care and nurturing lifestyle elements gives us a chance at total renewal for our best skin possible.
What kind of Portland Girl are you? I am the type of Portland Girl that loves to explore the city. Although I am a Portland Native, there’s still so much out there! And like everyone else, I’m simply just exploring. I enjoy biking around Portland, going to the farmers market, and trying out different coffee shops.
When I’m not at the Portland Girl, I’m: Either shopping, relaxing at one of my favorite coffee shops, or sipping on peppermint tea while watching Dr. Pimple Popper!
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 am a rare Portland Native! I was born in Eugene but have lived here since I was a baby, and I’m a hippie girl at heart. I have always been a skin care junkie since developing acne as an adult, and once I started going to school for esthetics I knew I had discovered my passion. I was drawn to the Portland Girl because of their sustainable practices and strong sense of community.
When you’re not at The Portland Girl, you’re… Planning my next big trip! I also love trying new restaurants, taking weekend trips to the Oregon coast, and going to the movies. I also love playing board games, reading, and binging trash reality tv. Seriously, don’t get me talking about The Bachelor.
What kind of Portland Girl are you? I’m a fun, easy going girl! I still love exploring this city that I’ve called home for so many years, meeting new people, and dancing! I could spend every rare warm day lounging by the river, and I’ll never say no to a shot of tequila.
guest services 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: I am born and raised in Portland, Oregon and proud of it! After attending and graduating with a B.A. in History and Social Studies from Whitworth University in Spokane, Washington I realized that Portland still had my heart (and family) and I just couldn’t stay away any longer. After playing four years of collegiate softball and returning to Portland I craved being a part of a team dynamic in the workplace which is what drew me to The Portland Girl. After years of customer service experience I strive to make clients feel special and comfortable which is what I aspire to do everyday at The Portland Girl.
When I’m not at the Portland Girl: I am probably trying to decide what new place my boyfriend and I want to eat at that night or sipping on a large pour of pinot noir after a long day of work.
guest services associate
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
About Me: I am a southern California native and moved to Portland in 2017. After spending most of my life living in the desert, I decided to move to the PNW to escape the heat. While I sometimes miss the California coast and spending countless days at Disneyland, I have really enjoyed exploring Oregon and all of the wonderful things that this state has to offer. I got into the field of beauty when I became a licensced esthetician in California, but discovered that my passion lies in customer service. I love talking to people and getting to know their stories!
When I’m not at the Portland Girl: Probably playing video games, re-reading Harry Potter, or studying. I am currently working on getting my Bachelor’s degree in Environmental Science.
