A typical day in my life includes…

you can usually find me #preservingthepretty over at my clinic in Old-Town Scottsdale, Skin Charm. I am a Board-Certified Aesthetics Nurse Injector and a Licensed Aesthetician, and I have been practicing in the aesthetics field for over 10 years. I LOVE helping people feel like the best version of themselves, and it is a great honor and privilege to do so on a daily basis. When I am not at work, you can usually find me working out, walking my pup, shopping, obsessing over interior/exterior design on Pinterest, cooking, or hanging out with friends and family.

I was born…

in Phoenix, AZ- I’m a native!

My favorite thing about Arizona…

it’s my home. Growing up in Arizona has allowed me to plant some very sturdy roots and maintain very solid friendships and business relationships. I love that no matter where you go, you almost always see someone you know and I always appreciate running into familiar faces. In addition to Arizona being my home, the sunsets and (usually) gorgeous weather never get old.

I’m listening to…

everything! Favorite band of all time is Led Zeppelin, but I also love hip-hop and country music. I’m very into Kacey Musgraves and podcasts at this present moment.

My family…

both mine and my husband’s families are almost all in Arizona! We don’t have any kiddos of our own yet, but we have a lot of niece and nephew love!

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be…

my dad. Unfortunately, I lost him in 2011 and I would love nothing more than to see his sweet, sunshiney face again! He was the best dad a girl could ever ask for and truly embodied everything that is a gentleman. We miss him every day but are all truly better to have known him.

I would also die to have dinner with Dolly Parton and Reese Witherspoon.

One thing I cannot live without…

my skincare products and dessert.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

a veterinarian.

I’m inspired by…

kindness, positivity, and people that chase their dreams!

The one person who motivates me is…

my husband. He is one of the most positive, high-energy, hardest-working, happiest people that I know.

The perfect day would be…

brunch, massages, and shopping with my besties in Paris. Is that asking too much? 😉 I’d also say doing anything in Charleston, I love Charleston.

My first job was…

working at Old Navy in high school.

My favorite escape…

Napa. My hubby and I tied the knot there and I looooooove wine country. I also joke that I’d like to have my ashes sprinkled in Montana. Or Nordstrom.

I’m currently working on…

a few new and exciting concepts within Skin Charm, and something very exciting with my Aestie Bestie, Jena Irby from Skin Fit Aesthetics. Stay Tuned- we are bursting with excitement over this one.

Always…

be kind. And pet the dogs.

Never…

“Never fear failure. Fear regret.”

Favorite Quote…

“Find out who you are, and do it on purpose.” – Dolly Parton

My Pet Peeve(s)…

people with low awareness, and people that are rude to the waiter.
