Listening is one way that we are able to develop a plan based on your skin goals. Most importantly it allows us always meet you where you come in for treatment, understand questions or concerns and to support you. 

Our skin is a mirror and reflects what is going on inside our body. I have spent years learning how our emotions, mood, food, relationships, stress, balance, and even finances show up on this beautiful organ called our skin! I believe a strong relationship between myself and my receivers is invaluable. Accumulation takes time and commitment. I am here to listen, educate, support and guide my clients on their journey to skin they love.

I hope to meet you soon!

I like to call myself a Wholistic Esthetician. The “W” encomposses the entire mind, body and spirit of my receivers.

My passion for skin started over 20 years ago...

I was studying health education at the University of New Mexico. I had a part-time job working for a dermatologist and quickly became fascinated with skin. I decided to join Bellas De Artes, which was at that time an Aveda concept school.

My base training was influenced by holistic health, using a lot of essential oils. For the next decade, I completed my training and worked on and off between my kiddos for a large group of dermatologist and at a day spa in Santa Fe, NM. 

After moving to Tennessee, I went to work for a group that was led by a plastic surgeon. 

I began to notice people with acne, eczema, and rosacea were suffering with low self-esteem because of the smallest imperfections.

At that point I found myself wanting to dig a little deeper and start asking more questions. I was going back to my roots in holistic skin health.  

While I had a general knowledge of the ways in which diet/lifestyle affected the skin, I wanted to learn more! That is when I enrolled at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. Since then, I've also continued my studies with people I respect most in the "green beauty" industry from the West Coast to Milan, Italy.

My interest in skincare started at an early age when I became captivated by the glossy pages of beauty magazines. I began reading books by prominent beauty authors to learn about different techniques, ingredients, and products and quickly fell in love with the world of beauty. That’s when I knew that I wanted to pursue esthetics. I experimented with so many different products, and looking back, I sometimes did more harm than good. As I learned more from experts as well as my own experiences with my skin changing, I realized skincare is so much more than just skin deep. I believe the skin shows a reflection of one’s overall health. Internal imbalances, stress, lifestyle, everything that we encounter or do will eventually show up on the skin, so it’s important to view the body as a whole in order to find balance. Having grown up in a family whose livelihood is creating delicious meals with the best ingredients, my love for cooking has also influenced my view on skincare. Our food and lifestyle choices nurture the body from the inside out, and just as we feed our bodies with the best food possible, we should nourish our skin.

Every client has a unique story which is why, for me, it is most important that every individual is heard. I take the time to listen and customize each treatment accordingly. I want to provide a space for relaxation, rest, and rejuvenation so that each client has the opportunity to take the time from a busy day and heal from the outside, in.

Beauty and wellness have always been very personal to me. In 2017, I started my health journey by switching my diet to include more plant-based meals and the biggest change that I noticed was in my skin. It was happy, healthy and glowing. I wondered if there was a correlation between what we consume in our everyday lives and how our skin reacts. Having a more internal focus on the skin allows us to find the root of the problem, not just treat it topically. I moved to Franklin to attend esthetics school and took a deep dive into everything skincare,
wellness and beauty. I learned many different facial techniques along with waxing, eyebrow and eyelash services.

I'm in this industry to inspire and create self-love within each client. I'm here to help build and restore the confidence of people who are trying to improve themselves and create a healthier mind, body and soul.
