Ever since my mother first took me to a Macy’s make-up counter at an age where I couldn’t see over the counter, the women who worked behind them struck me as glamorous and exotic. Since that age I wanted to be an aesthetician. Needless to say, writing down what I wanted to be when I grew up came with some spelling challenges, not to mention, most people didn’t even know what it was. When I had enough money saved up from doing the “9-5” routine I paid my way to go to school for aesthetics. I attended the Institute of Aesthetic Arts and Sciences in Southbury, Connecticut and graduated in 2002. The basis of my approach to skincare is that you’re always addressing more than what you see on the surface.
