My philosophy
When it comes to our skin, there’s no such thing as a quick fix. As our largest organ – it is what we are. We know that everything – from our diet to our sleep habits, our laundry detergent to the weather – can affect our skin.

If you have a concern or condition of the skin, let’s work together to find a cause and solution. I enjoy the challenge of creating a plan that works for each individual client. I tell my clients and friends to treat their skin like an investment. It’s much easier to be proactive and preventative.

I believe in a natural, holistic approach to skin care and healing practices. That belief is reflected in my unique blend of therapeutic and relaxation treatments and in the real, organic products I use to treat my clients. I find it especially rewarding to get to know my clients on a personal level and see the improvements in their skin and overall health.

My journey
A little more than 20 years ago, I was working in specialized consulting in Silicon Valley. When my son was born, I didn’t think I could be the mother I wanted to be while giving my all in consulting. I decided to start over and began a new journey studying holistic skin care aesthetics.

I started school in California and returned to Wisconsin to complete the program at Aveda. There, I was graduate number 86 – one of the first 100 aestheticians in the state.

I am also certified in reiki, lymphatic drainage, body treatments and will soon have a certification in herbal therapy from Tippecanoe Herbs and Apothecary.

The knowledge we have about our skin is always evolving. I am committed to lifelong learning about our skin so that I can continue to serve and care for my clients and community.
