After graduating from the renowned EURO Institute of Skin Care in 2004, I was hired to lead the esthetics team for the brand new Alderbrook Resort Spa on Hood Canal in Washington. I quickly found my passion in taking care of my clients and their skin care needs. Since those early days, I have lead esthetics teams for spas around the country and eventually opened my own skin care salon on Bainbridge Island, where I was referred to by several Seattle dermatologists.
Fourteen years later, I moved back to Oregon, where I was born. I knew I wanted to create something special here, where I could combine the knowledge, expertise and experience I've accumulated over the last 16 years and provide more advanced esthetics services and that's how The Skin Genie was created.
In May of 2019, I became an instructor for Sage School of Massage and Esthetics in Bend, teaching Anatomy, Physiology, Histology, Sanitation Standards, Diseases of the Skin, Self-Care, Chemistry, Product Knowledge, Oregon State Laws and Career Success.
My other passion is singing...with Bella Acappella Harmony Chorus, an award-winning local competitive women’s chorus that specializes in 4-part harmony and the barbershop arts. You'll hear us around the community singing with joy, so be sure to say "Hello"!
