A little about me…I am an Alaskan raised mom of 4. I have spent the majority of my career as a small business owner in the legal field. When I left Alaska 8 years ago, I wanted a career change. It is important to me to wake up every day and love what I am doing! I decided to get into esthetics because I believe in natural health and skin care and want to share that passion with the people I meet. I discovered sugaring and decided to give it a try after wax just wasn't agreeing with my skin. I immediately fell in love with this natural and effective form of hair removal- and I know you will too!
I am a Colorado native, born and raised in Boulder. I went to beauty school in 2009 for hair and unexpectedly ended up loving my esthetics classes. When I finally had the opportunity to be sugared after hearing about for years, I knew sugaring was the direction I wanted to take my career. I love the technique and finesse required for sugaring and providing a service I feel is more effective and better for our bodies and the environment. I am also a hairstylist at Arabella Salon in NE.
A bit about me...I attended the Aveda Institute and earned my esthetics license in October of 2014. I began my career in esthetics in February of 2015 and soon after, moved from my hometown of Camas, WA here to Portland. I am a big green beauty enthusiast which feeds my passion for plant based skincare and sugar hair removal. When outside the treatment room I often spend my time outdoors, or enjoying the company of my family. I love having the opportunity to meet new people, and being able to help them feel confident and comfortable in their own skin!
I was drawn to the world of esthetics over 10 years ago while working as an interior architect, and knew this new career would be my passion! For the past 7 years, lash extensions has been my main jam, and I love it! But I also missed hair removal. When I learned about sugaring, I was hooked! It's my love and passion to make women feel beautiful inside and out and working as an esthetician I to get to be a positive part of someone's day, which is such a blessing!
I was born and raised in SE Portland, so Sellwood was a part of my childhood stomping grounds. This eclectic neighborhood and Portland’s general inclination towards health and wellness-along with my own battle with acne-sparked my interest in natural methods of skincare. After graduating college in 2016, I spent a few years managing a wellness center. Watching our clients come in frustrated or unhappy and watching them leave excited and hopeful made me realize how badly I wanted to become an esthetician. I went back to school and became a licensed esthetician. I had learned about sugaring prior to going back to school and knew I wanted to offer services to clients that would be natural, eco-friendly and more inclusive to all skin types. I’m so excited to be a part of the Sugar Sugar team and have an opportunity to work with and for my community!
