Having been a personal trainer/nutritionist for most of my career, it lead me to understand many other facets of life we neglect, such as skincare. I wanted to create a full wellness menu for people, so I furthered my education in life coaching and became an esthetician. I now concentrate on skincare and muscle tension release from the face and scalp to shoulder area during my facials. I found most skin problems are not just skin deep, so I offer an array of options from a relaxation facial to nutritional and wellness options that can give the largest organ of your body a complete makeover.
