My professional journey in the beauty industry began when I was just 18 years old, working in retail cosmetics. There, I had the opportunity to work with a variety of makeup and skin care brands, and my passion grew into freelance work as well. After finishing college, I took a brief break from the beauty industry, and I quickly realized how much I missed it. So, I decided to make it my full-time career, and returned to school to become a licensed esthetician. After becoming licensed, I attended specialized training to become certified as a Dermalogica Expert at the International Dermal Institute. I have worked as an esthetician and makeup artist serving high-end clientele at prestigious establishments in San Francisco. Now, I am excited and grateful to bring my expertise to the Peninsula, where I grew up and have always called home.
