Here to share my life’s journey with you… As I’m working towards becoming perfectly imperfect. I’m currently under construction… working towards becoming the best version of myself!
Fun Facts You Didn’t Know About Me!
My business started in my one bedroom apartment in Tampa, Florida. When I graduated from beauty school in 2010, I actually turned my dining room area into my treatment room. At the time, I was working full time with Hillsborough County Clerk of the Circuit Court (where I worked as a courtroom clerk). I later hit a point where I wanted to focus on my business full time… it was time for me to take a leap of faith – I took a chance on myself, my passion, and my dream.
MY CELEBRITY SUMMER EXPERIENCE!
Meeting Janelle Monae, Beyonce, and Chloe x Halle and more of my amazing 2018 summer Experience!
Undoubtedly, summer 2018 was full of surprises for me!!
For instance, I went to my first-ever live concert in 2018 (at the age of 31!!). Of course, that summer, I ended up meeting and taking pictures with THE Janelle Monae In St. Pete, Florida (FL)
(I have it hanging in the skincare boutique lobby – proudly!! lol).
Of course, you will definitely see it when you come in 🙂
This was around the time I went to New Orleans with a really good friend of mine and her mom!
It was so much fun!
A few months later… I went to my second concert to see one of my favorite people Beyonce!! in Orlando, Florida (FL)
This was the same year I did my Denmark Study abroad trip.
Few months later I ended up receiving my stage 3 breast cancer diagnoses (Late November).
Shortly after… it was time for surgery, treatments followed by a double mastectomy!
I share more details in my new book…
ABOUT | MY LOVE
I’m passionate about what I do as a skincare professional. I’m an island girl who can not sing or dance (I just haven’t heard the right tune honestly…) lol.
I’m a middle-vert (half introvert & extrovert), I am a bit awkward and nerdy at times, I’m full of positive energy once we really get to know one another.
Equally important, I love dolphins and art… I enjoy long walks near water and sketching eyes
BEHIND THE SCENES VIEW
In the same way, here are some of my favorite things:
- Anything skincare, beauty, or business related,
- Adventure / Travel / Beach
- I love road trips as much as I love flying to see all the beauty around the globe…
- I ‘m pro “solo traveling”(less politics to deal with) – in groups, at times, it’s hard to get everyone’s moods/schedules to match/be on the same page.
- I enjoy being near water, That’s mainly because I can hear the sound of the waves.
- Lounging around at the beach brings me peace and joy
- Art / Poetry / History
- I love museums as much as I love to sketch/draw, paint, and read/write poetry.
I’m naturally a good vibes only type of person. Therefore, I enjoy being around people with positive energy/attitude.
Equally, being near water is extremely relaxing & soothing for my mind, body, and spirit. For this reason, I’m a strong believer in whatever you think and/or surround yourself with, you become…
Therefore, I surround myself with things that keeps me calm and at peace.
I love being an esthetician as much as I love learning about skin care, product formulation and anything relating to beauty and business.
I’ve found a way to connect a few of my favorite things into one.
- I love to travel and I love to learn.
- I love the beauty industry and being a business owner.
- I’m determined to become the best esthetician for clients with black/brown skin like myself.
- I want to ensure that I’m always bringing my A-Game for my clients
- I want to ensure I’m always at my best for you.
Therefore, I travel often to attend live classes, seminars, and trade shows. Continued education is extremely important to me.
THE UN-ATTRACTIVE SIDE…
Furthermore, I had the opportunity of working closely with, public, court reporters, clerks, judges, attorneys, police officers, sheriff deputies, and various government personnel & agencies.
In my previous role, I have created, managed, and maintained Legal records, court files, minutes, calendars, and dockets while attending court proceedings. I also tracked and maintained stats, docket records, and diary of transactions.
I developed and fostered long-lasting business relationships with government officials, other employees, and the public through excellent communication. I have experience working in Traffic, Misdemeanor, and Felony court throughout my 10 years with the company.
I enjoyed my past jobs, however, because I wanted to pursue the love and passion I have for skincare and the beauty industry, I knew it was time for me to take a leap of faith to start my business.
My past jobs and life experience has played a huge in my self awareness journey. I strive to help my clients enjoy the ride – on their journey to becoming the beset version of themselves.
My journey to becoming a beauty expert goes back to 2010 with my own personal struggle with acne, acne scars, and ingrown hair. It is through my work learning how to first improve my own skincare, and then my passion to bring this knowledge to others, that I came to truly understand this guiding principle:
Beauty is a state of mind as much as a physical way of being.
ABOUT MY QUALIFICATIONS

“Beauty is a state of mid as much as a physical way of being.”
Because of this belief, we don’t just focus on what’s on the outside.
