I was born and raised a good ‘ole Midwestern girl in Northwest Indiana right outside of Chicago. I attended Indiana University and graduated as a Dental Hygienist. The adventurous side of me would not let me stay anchored in one place for too long and the Midwest winters are not that much fun once you’re not a kid anymore, so I made my way out west to Arizona in 1999. I absolutely fell in love with all things AZ and it immediately felt like “home”. Again the traveler in me couldn’t help but peruse a career that wouldn’t keep me from my love of people and places, so I became a flight attendant for many years. I wouldn’t have changed that career choice for the world as it gave me the opportunity to see and experience things that I never would have been able to otherwise. But after many years of traveling and flying I yearned to find something else I was passionate about that would allow me to be home more with my husband and 2 children. By luck and coincidence I learned about microblading and loved everything about it! Very soon into discovering the world of permanent makeup and facial esthetics, I became enthralled with all the exciting procedures and treatments that help women and men not only look better, but more importantly, FEEL better about themselves.
