What makes me a great esthetician : I am passionate about what I do. I want each guest to feel that passion.

What is your specialty? Brows! They were what I feared the most out of skin school, but I LOVE how a customized shape can absolutely light-up someone’s face. It's like a mini face-lift!
Have you ever donated your services or talents to a charitable organization? Any community activities/organizations that you're regularly involved with? I love that I work for a salon that is BIG on community service. It may not be something I always do on my own, but love how much WE as a whole give back to our community.
What quote or mantra do you strive to live by? Make my Life Song sing!!
