I am a licensed advanced esthetician. The advanced esthetics license allows me to perform advanced medical skincare treatments for my clients above and beyond what a traditional esthetics license will allow, such as LASER treatments, IPL photo rejuvenation, derma planing, and micro-needling treatments that are typically performed in a medical setting. I received my most recent education at The Academy of Advanced Aesthetics in Salem, Oregon. I have worked for doctors and trained with international experts in the skincare field. I have over 15 years in the beauty industry and always strive to stay abreast on new skincare treatments and technologies which allows me to better serve my clients. My objective is to help my clients achieve their personal skincare goals.
I am originally from Hawaii, though I spent most of my life growing up in Sonoma County's beautiful wine country. You could say that I have appreciated all that is beautiful from a very young age. By the age of 6 I was fully emerged in my mother's makeup bag and by middle school and high school I was doing makeup for anyone at any opportunity. From there I moved to Southern California to pursue my dream of becoming a makeup artist. Some time after, I found I had a new path ahead of me, one which led our family to Eugene, Oregon. Oregon has been so incredibly good to us and I could not imagine my life anywhere else. Currently, I am based in Southern Oregon with my wonderful children and my amazing husband. I am definitely living the dream, at least my dream. I love what I do and that I can share my passion with others.
For the past 10 years, I have specialized in bridal beauty beauty. There are so many reasons I enjoy this aspect of my business: beautiful brides, gorgeous flowers, meeting amazing photographers, and seeing all of the exquisite venues, but what I love best is meeting all of my lovely brides and being part of their most special day. It is a very intimate experience being with the bride those last moments before she walks down the aisle, and I appreciate being able to be apart of that. It's also usually a lot of fun getting all the girls ready and watching them just have fun and celebrate the way best friends do. My hope is that when you leave my chair you will feel relaxed, pampered, and beautiful.
