I was born and raised in Warrenton, VA but left when I was 18 to explore different states. I started in New Jersey but quickly made my way to Tucson Arizona. From there I visited 21 other states, some I stayed for months while others I stayed for days or hours. I lived in a tent and traveled in my Nissan named Nina. It was thrilling, challenging, eye opening, and horrible for my skin. I started to develop eczema and had to pay more attention to what I was putting on my body. That’s where esthetics really pulled me in. I left my travels and my pick-up-and-go lifestyle and moved back to VA but to Charlottesville because I still needed the thrill of change. I restarted my comfortable but financially stable job of restaurant serving and managing and after 4 years here in Cville, the support has pushed me to pursue the passion of skincare/ingredients and my love for people. I’m incredibly grateful for this opportunity and eager to be the very best esthetician I can possibly be!
