My passion is to offer my clients the youthful and rejuvenated skin they desire, with not only prevenative maintenance but reversal of skin damage. I graduated from the College of Charleston prior to receiving my esthetics certification from Central Georgia Technical College. I have been treating clients at the Greensboro location of Aesthetic Specialty Centre since 2003. My treatments offer clients a cosmetic result while also protecting them from skin cancer and sun damage. I help clients achieve their most desirable results through a customized skincare regimen including microdermabrasions, chemical peels, as well as medical grade skin care products. I also have extensive training in laser hair removal which is imperative when dealing with multiple skin types. My experience with our practice (assisting with Dr. Yune and practicing esthetics) has given me the exposure and knowledge to offer my clients healthy and beautiful skin along with medical benefit.
