After graduating from the renowned EURO Institute of Skin Care in 2004, I was hired to lead the esthetics team for the Alderbrook Resort's new spa on Hood Canal. 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.
When I moved here, I knew I wanted to create something special, where I could combine the knowledge, expertise and experience I had accumulated over the years. So I opened The Skin Genie, providing skincare in Bend with the specific purpose of guiding, coaching and personally helping my clients address their toughest skin care issues, using the most results-driven formulations for facials available without a prescription.
Another of my passion's is singing with Bella Acappella, an award-winning local women’s chorus that specializes in four-part harmony and the barbershop arts. You'll hear us around the community singing with joy, so be sure to say "Hello"!
