Amongst the chaos, there is sooo much deep, deep beauty.
My Skin Care Story:
When I was 12 years old, I realized that I needed to pay more attention to my skin as I was breaking out and struggling with my self esteem. I had no idea where to start. I saw a Dermatologist who told me “just to wash your face” and this made me feel dirty. I was given a prescription however no recommendations on what to use on my skin. I went to the store and saw so many products that I quickly became overwhelmed. So I tried a few things, but broke out because I didn’t purchase the right products and became frustrated and unsure of myself. My skin was imbalanced and in need of some tender loving care.
I had endured almost every type of issue one would experience with their skin. Pigmentation, Acne, Rosacea, roughness, imbalanced skin and the list goes on…
I have been working as an Medical Aesthetician for over 28 years and I love every minute that I am with my clients helping them achieve healthy glowing skin and slowing down the aging process! Mentoring them through the challenges they are experiencing brings me so much joy.
Over the years I have learned tips, techniques and tools to help women love the skin they are in, but more importantly, I have created some incredible relationships with my clients to help them meet their own skin care needs.

4 Pillars of Red Barn Wellness
My hope is that you experience all of them in different ways during your treatments here.
I am always seeking the most current and up to date treatments, and have a large tool box of my tried and true!
It's important to me to use clean, healthy products that are free of toxins, safe for not only YOU but the environment and not tested on animals.
I use an integrated approach. I see myself as a bridge between top medical treatments and holistic practices that support your overall skin health. It's all about looking beneath and beyond the surface of your skin. Stress, nutrition, your relationships (especially your relationship with the sun) and other lifestyle habits can have as much effect on your skin care issues as lotions, potions and treatments.
On Going Maintenance:
This is critical. Our skin is a living and breathing entity. It's the largest organ in your body. It's not an Insta-Pot. You can't set it and forget it. It's an ongoing, daily, monthly, and seasonal conversation and I'm here to help you facilitate the back and forth with short and long term treatment modalities so you can keep loving the skin you're in!
Loving the Skin You’re In is about so much more than cutting edge treatments and top notch ingredients. It's more complex than that. Managing stress levels, eating quality and nutritious foods, as well as honoring WHO YOU ARE… exactly AS YOU ARE is another big piece and holding space for you to find unconditional love of SELF so you can be the most authentic version of yourself is the reason I do this work.
