My mission is to provide non-invasive treatments to help you maintain your self-confidence by promoting a radiant, refreshed, natural looking you. I have over 21 years of combined experience in Healthcare, 16 of those years have been as a Registered Nurse. 

My intrigue for the beauty industry began at a young age, as my grandma owned her own hair salon, where I would spend a lot of my time. While watching my grandma work, I gained knowledge and passion for the beauty industry. Throughout my Nursing career I longed for a work environment that promoted positivity and creativity. Through this need I discovered the incredible and unique field of Aesthetic Nursing, a career that combines my love for science, beauty, caring for others, positivity and creativity. 

My nursing practice and skills are guided by safety, integrity, honesty, attention to details, and finding joy when making a difference in the lives of others.

I am excited to be here for you!  

Over the years, I have learned life is a balance. Not only should you be driven and set attainable goals, but you should also be a dreamer and manage the two with self-care. I look forward to helping you in your medical aesthetic and wellness journey.

Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
