Drawing on her expertise as a Master Aesthetics graduate of Dermal Science International Aesthetics Academy, Jennifer's main philosophy is: ingredients matter. Believing that each individual needs to discover a balance to achieve healthy, glowing, vibrant skin, Jennifer's goal is to assist in guiding the skin into that balance long-term to achieve its fullest potential in beauty, health and strength. Transitioning from the medical side of the industry, Jennifer has seen and, in many cases, believes in the results of what the latest laser technologies can provide. However, if the health of the skin is neglected those wonderful ideas will never produce the results that they promise. Through each customized treatment, she strives to give her client the results they are seeking, while promoting deep relaxation.
Known for her thoroughness, she enjoys educating her guests about their skin, and how to maintain healthy skin holistically. Education and knowledge are equally as important to self as Jennifer continues to evolve her craft, and she continuously pursues diverse studies under the tutelage of Shirin. Jennifer's true passion is skin health and skin care, and being able to help someone feel relaxed, self-confident, and pampered is most rewarding for her. Jennifer truly values the connections she has with people, as it is those experiences that contribute to making her life meaningful.
Erin has worked in many professions, including nursing, but never truly identified her passion until becoming an aesthetician. The foundation of her approach to skincare is the skin is a reflection of one's overall health and well being. She tailors each service to the individual's specific needs and strives to support skin's innate knowledge with thoughtfully made, natural products.
A lifelong proponent of healing touch, she employs extended facial massage to bring out the skin's natural radiance and looks to empower client's to be their own skin's expert. Most importantly, she seeks to remind individuals that self-care is not selfish but an act of love necessary for total health. Erin continuously seeks out new scientific research on the skin and how it functions and the on-going study of global knowledge of health and wellness.
