I am 39 years old. I have many years of experience in the beauty and health industries. Starting at the age of 14, I worked in my parent’s beauty salon in Troutdale, Oregon, where I grew up. At the age of 19 I moved to Southern California where I managed a Day Spa in Redlands, CA for about a year before moving to San Diego, CA where I worked as a body wrap technician.
All of my life I have dealt with oily, blotchy, acne-ridden, sensitive skin. I tried product after product, facials, talking to dermatologists, drying my skin out in tanning beds, even trying birth control to fix my skin problems; nothing seemed to work. After several years of suffering, I began doing my own research and after limiting dairy, sugar and processed foods from my diet, using organic skin care products and repeating the mantra, “less is more”, my skin started to glow!
In 2006, while living in Southern CA, I was diagnosed with melanoma skin cancer in two places. This shocking diagnosis was one of the worst things that had ever happened to me, but ended up having a very positive effect on my life. Being diagnosed with cancer urged me to move closer to my family in beautiful Bend Oregon. I got a job in Bend at a small acupuncture clinic and over the next 7 years I helped it grow into a group of 5 clinics and managed every aspect of the business. While there, I learned about holistic medicine and how our bodies need balance.
After graduating from Portland Beauty School in 2012, I started Revive Skin Services, with only one esthetician: me. Because I am passionate about my work and making people look and feel amazing, my business thrived and grew very quickly. Only 8 months after opening Revive, my first goal in business was realized by expanding and collaborating with 3 other amazing practitioners to offer organic and natural holistic care for clients. In late 2016 I opened a second skin care spa in Lake Oswego, Oregon and my 3rd location opens in Wood Village, ORegon in June of 2018.
I am constantly learning and strive to provide the most effectual service and comprehensive information for my clients. I refuse to compromise and will not offer a service or product unless I love it and would use it on myself. I have been told I have a healing touch; maybe because I love what I do and strive to be a positive influence in people’s lives. I specialize in sensitive skin types and skin conditions from medication side effects, oncology esthetics and love to put my clients in a state of total relaxation.
