My love of skincare began as a young girl growing up on my grandfather “Pops” large farm in Central California. He farmed apricots, grapes, plums, nectarines and shipped them globally. While my siblings loved eating fruit straight from the tree, I relished in creating the freshest face masks and scrubs with it. I became obsessed with concocting the best textures and aromas and immediately applying my homemade masks directly onto my skin. Pops instilled in me a respect for the land, and always took great pride in the quality of what he produced.
While farming is in my soul, exploring the world is in my blood. My first trip off the farm, while still in college, was to Paris to attend the Sorbonne. It was there where I discovered the art of the facial and was mesmerized by the skincare rituals of the French woman. I knew when I returned to the US that I wanted to get my esthetics license along with finishing my business degree.
My skincare philosophy is based on nourishing your lipid barrier, less is more when it comes to products, and only use the world’s best ingredients when formulating. My ethos is represented in each product in my assortment. I also bring my 26 years’ experience working directly on skin, that’s over 20,000 faces, so I have an acute understanding of what works. Plus, when you consider my clients are some of the most discerning and recognizable faces in the world, there is no margin for error.
