My Skin Care Journey~
I began my esthetician career over 25 years ago after attending Esthetics school and obtaining my esthetician and separate manicuring license, as well as various other skincare related certifications.
I gave up my manicuring business 5 years later, when I became pregnant with my son, and realized how toxic all the chemicals in the nail esthetic industry could seriously effect my self and my unborn child's health, that motivated me to investigate the esthetic industry.
My love for skin started when I was in my early 20's, I suffered with severe acne, instead of addressing the root cause of my skin condition, the doctors gave me birth control pills which made me internally sick, the Dermatologist used liquid nitrogen on my face to peel the layers of my skin completely off which made my acne worse, my skin was severely burned and vulnerable to sun damage, I was left with acne scaring and thin sensitive angry skin. I call that the "band aid approach."
At the time I was involved in the modeling industry, I had a killer body but my face was horrible, I had to plaster the makeup on, photos had to be touched up, it was deflating and humiliating, my self confidence as a young woman in my 20's was bruised. I see this same approach today, when clients come to me for guidance they tell me pills are pushed, acids are used and the end results are not helpful, the body as a whole takes a hit, your liver and kidney, the entire immune system is affected. It's truly heartbreaking to witness how ineffective antibiotics are in addressing acne, and various other skin conditions for that matter. Yes there is a time and place for antibiotics, I know when to refer out to a professional when a condition is out of my scope of practice, thankfully, I have a vast network of professionals, MD's, Plastic Surgeons, Dermatologists, Nutritionist, Health and Wellness Practitioner's with whom I trust to refer my clients to, they can also investigate the root cause of conditions I'm not able to address in some cases.
Fast forward a few years later, after working in the department store beauty business for 15 years prior, I realized my love for healthy, result driven skincare was my passion to help others with their skin issues. I knew I could provide a healthier alternative to the department store over the counter products and provide a more personable, intimate and healthy hands-on skincare service. I went back to school and obtained my esthetics certification. Since then I have specialized in providing healthy, relaxing & result driven holistic facials therapies to an appreciative clientele in my skin care studio on Mendocino Avenue in Santa Rosa, CA. I have been in business in this same Santa Rosa location for over 20 years. I enjoy attending post graduate training classes on a regular basis to keep current with my industries skincare technology advancements.
I'm currently taking the OTI, "Oncology Training International Eshtetics Course." I will be certified and able to provide healing facial services to cancer patients. It's unfortunate in my 25 years in business I've lost several clients and a few close friends to cancer, so this is near and dear to my heart.
