I am a licensed esthetician and licensed advanced esthetician. The advanced esthetics license allows me to perform advanced medical esthetic treatments for my clients above and beyond what a traditional esthetics license will allow, such as LASER treatments, IPL, 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 where I trained in tattoo removal, LASER hair removal, IPL, radio frequency devices and ultrasound technology. I have worked for doctors and trained with international experts in the skincare field. I have over 10 years in the industry and I am always striving to stay abreast on new treatments and technology to better serve my clients. My objective is to help my clients achieve their 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. I was fully emerged in my mother's makeup bag at the age of six 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 us to Eugene, Oregon. Oregon has been so incredibly good to us and I could not imagine raising my family 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 8 years, I have specialized in bridal 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. What I really love is to meet all of my brides and be 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. I look forward to meeting you, my future 2018 brides.
