Birthday: 1/18

Vulnerabilities (fears): heights, natural disasters, failure, and poisonous spiders
Joys: watching my kiddos explore the world and achieve their goals (Climbing a tree! Scoring in soccer! Learning Spanish!), live music, nerdy board games and escape rooms, date nights with my husband, cabin time, Ted Lasso, cheesecake, and books.

Something you love about yourself

I love that I strive to maximize intention in my life! No more auto-pilot; whatever I do, I choose it and I do it wholeheartedly and with purpose.

What is your Superpower & why?

Research, from reviewing current best practices in anesthesia or injecting to finding the best bike for a five year old daredevil. I am nothing if not exceptionally thorough!

What is your favorite Service to perform and why?

PRP facials! It is a perfect combination of my medical training and my aesthetic training. The results from a series of three are stunning and can be life-changing for clients with scarring, redness, fine lines, or uneven skin tone.

What services are you most passionate about and why?

Botox and Xeomin injections as well as facial filler injections.
