After working in the banking industry for over 10 years, I decided to make a change in my career and take classes in massage therapy. I always had a desire to help people and thought of going into nursing but I also enjoyed receiving massages so I felt I could start with that first then approach nursing. I fell in love with the beauty industry and after receiving my massage therapy license at the Touch Therapy Institute I studied esthetics at the Lu Ross Academy. I worked at Sony Pictures Entertainment and Tri Star Studio’s, working on movie locations and the studios as a massage therapist.  In addition to the movie industry I also worked at a day spa were I learned more about the beauty industry and esthetics. Then, I went on to learn permanent make up and trained with Susan Church at the International Institute of Permanent Cosmetics. Advance training courses and Certificates:

  • Permanent Make up (eyeliner, lip liner, powder eyebrows, eyebrow hair simulation, corrective pigment camouflage and scalp hair simulation, lash enhancement, areola re-pigmentation)
