Growing up in Aspen, Colorado gave me a fond appreciation for the natural surroundings that were readily available to me. After spending my time growing up in this wonderful valley I would decide it was time for a new journey in my life. In March of 2009 I would embark on a journey that forever changed my life for the better. This would start by enrolling into school for body work, at Colorado School of Healing Arts. Where my journey in their seven-hundred hour program would license me in the state of Colorado. This experience was so enjoyable, that upon completion I’d re-enroll in the Associate’s Degree program offered. My choices to specialize in would be Cranial Sacral (A light form of touch, to help fascinate proper joint movement in the cranium which in turn creates healthier function throughout the entire body), Neuromuscular Therapy (A more specialized form of deep tissue that intends to be more specific to particular muscle groups), Lastly was sports therapy (geared toward the athletic type, stretching the body through passive and active movement). My work has taken me to great places and I hope to share this knowledge that has been bestowed upon me onto you.
I started in the beauty industry in 2008 as a makeup artist. In 2013, I decided to go for my esthetics license to deepen my understanding of the skincare and beauty. Finding my passion to empower women through beauty was the best thing that happened to me. To deepen my understanding of this industry, I studied Beauty Industry Merchandising, Marketing and Management at FIDM in Los Angeles. While attending school, I continued my work as an esthetician, working with a multitude of different skin types and conditions. With my background in makeup, I have found I love building beautiful eyelash extensions to complement my clients lifestyle and unique eye shape. I am passionate about helping every woman feel beautiful and empowered through my services.
