I grew up mostly in the midwest but did spend some of my childhood in the PNW outside of Portland. After being honorably discharged from the military, I discovered my passion for skin care and I received my license as an esthetician from The Summit Salon Academy located in Washington state. Starting out, I worked primarily on customized facial treatments, microdermabrasion, and chemical peels while learning the ways of the beauty industry. I went on to study advanced aesthetics in Colorado state, increasing my knowledge base on light therapies, injectables, and other medical spa service treatments. Thriving as an esthetician in a Forbes Five Star spa, I learned a great deal about quality of care and quality of the experience. Now that I’ve relocated back to Oregon, I specialize in IPL, radio frequency, and variety of quality skin care treatments. I strive to educate all of my clients on proper maintenance and optimal skin health. I work with each client to identify their main concerns, and can help develop an appropriate and safe treatment plan. I actively check in with clients each visit to ensure they’re on the correct path and make adjustments as needed.

My primary focus is to help enhance the natural health of your skin while helping you achieve a clearer complexion, acne relief, or total skin rejuvenation. I am excited about building lasting results and relationships in Hillsboro and the surrounding areas.
