She has a special interest in integrative dermatology and believes in “aging with grace”.
When I’m not at Pūr:
I’m enjoying all the Pacific Northwest has to offer: boating, hiking, horseback riding, skiing, and snowboarding… all while practicing smart skin protection, of course.
What drew you to aesthetics?
I love aesthetics because it allows me to express my creative side while helping patients look and feel their best.
Why integrative dermatology?
I’m fascinated by how lifestyle choices impact skin health and disease. I love that my role as a provider is to be both an educator and guide, empowering patients to reach and maintain optimum wellness. I’ve always believed in inner health for outer beauty.
On my nightstand: My book du jour. I’m a total bibliophile.
Favorite skin challenge:
Helping patients improve the clarity and texture of skin. I enjoy creating a customized treatment plan to help patients regain skin smoothness and radiance; minimizing pores, wrinkles, age spots, sun damage, and pigmentary changes.
Dark chocolate. Although not too guilty since it’s full of antioxidants.
I’ll cry if I’m out of:
SkinMedica Retinol Complex 0.5.
Best thing to happen to the skin care business:
Botox… dermal fillers….fractionated lasers…. I love them all! And as this industry is constantly evolving, it’s essential to have access to cutting edge technology and the latest techniques.
