I received my license after graduating from the Aveda Institute in December of 2017 and then went on to obtain my Certificate of Cosmetic Laser from the National Laser Institute a few months later. For the last several years I have been practicing aesthetics directly under a medical provider’s care, ensuring that I am able to achieve the best possible results for my patients. As I join the Desert Dermatology team I have reached my ultimate goal – to serve in a medical atmosphere that offers a vast variety of services so that I can help as many individuals as possible in the way that best suits them.
I enter every aesthetic/wellness treatment from an individual and personalized approach. My goal is to make my patients feel and look better after every interaction that we have together. Not only is it important for me to provide excellent services that bring about great results, but it is also important to me that I educate my patients on lifestyle choices that can positively affect their skin, health, and well-being. It is so important to me that my patients feel comfortable and confident in my care.
I am proudly born and raised right here in Tucson, AZ. I am very family-oriented and enjoy making memories with my beautiful daughter! My biggest passion truly lies in aesthetics and I can always be found researching or reading up on the latest treatments and attempting to further my knowledge in the field.
Our team includes experienced and energetic people whose goal is to communicate well with our patients and provide the best care possible.
