I’m getting really into nutrition and exercise, so if I wasn’t an esthetician I’d be a personal trainer. I feel the desire to help people with their weight-loss journey since I just went through one myself. I feel so great and I just want everyone to feel great too. I’d probably also have booth at a local antique or home consignment store because I love! going to estate sales!

I’m a huge fan of the revitalash, this amazing product really grows your lashes and makes them look long and luscious. I also love the universal brow pencil for filling in the sparse brow areas. I’ve noticed a marked difference in my skin since being a die-hard dermologica user.

if you weren’t working @ the wax bar, what would you be doing?

I’m really interested in nutrition and holistic body care so I’d probably go to school for nutrition counseling or naturopathy. I’d like to get my Reiki master certificate and practice that too. I love what I do now so no career change for me anytime soon.

what is the best thing about your job?

The best thing about my job is the interactions I have with my clients. You never know why someone is getting the service they’re getting, and I  love hearing about their lives and helping them feel beautiful. It’s amazing the sense of relief you can give someone just by doing something as simple as a lip wax. I’m also a little OCD, so waxing is the perfect career for me!

what are some of your favorite skincare products @ the wax bar?

Tend Skin for waxing aftercare. It’s amazing how using it consistently can help prevent and heal ingrown hairs. Second would have to be Dermologica Intensive Eye Repair. I think that eye cream is one of the most underrated skin care products, yet it’s so important. TWICE A DAY PEOPLE!

I would be a stand up comedian, a baker, a full time dog foster parent, or a powerhouse lawyer.
