My story is very much like a tapestry. I have been woven by the threads of fate, the colors of experience, and the machines of thought. Sounds pretty haughty? Once you come to know me, you will truly understand.

I was raised, schooled and worked primarily in Aurora, Illinois. My young adult years were occupied by working as a registered nurse in local nursing homes, hospitals and home health agencies.

My middle years were filled with the joys of raising two terrific children. Working as a nurse channeled me to an adult education career and later into leadership and organizational development.

Most recently I had worked as a nurse leader for a correctional healthcare company. Traveling between Illinois, Iowa and Michigan I managed several hundred individuals who cared tirelessly for our men, women and teens behind bars.

So, what brings me to skin care? The catalyst for my career shift began as a quiet conversation with one of my nieces. She talked very comfortably about her coursework to become an esthetician. As I watched her, I could see how absolutely gorgeous her skin had become and how excited she was at the prospect of helping others.

I began my path to skin care in August 2012 and in May of 2013 become licensed as an esthetician in Illinois.

I can promise this to you my clients; I am a hard worker and expect results from my work. You can expect outstanding customer service as well as receiving the quality of services you expect.

My clients, I want you to tell me what I can do for you. What results do you want to see?  I am here for you, to help you love the skin you're in.
