Privacy is not rejection of those you love it is your deserved respite for recharging your batteries."

my story

I was always getting into my mother’s makeup when I was little. I was fascinated with the stuff, much to her chagrin. My love of skincare and makeup led me down a path that has brought me much joy, discovery, and fulfillment. I love makeup!

My skin, on the other hand, had been the bane of my existence since my first pimple in the 7th grade. I played sick so I could leave school, I was that mortified.


I think a lot of estheticians start with a quest to heal their own skin. I was fortunate enough that my acne didn’t stop with adolescence. It has been super faithful my whole life (insert eye roll.)


That being said, I am well aware of what it feels like to struggle with an imperfect complexion, hyperpigmentation, scaring, and when I hit 40, wrinkles and aging skin (lucky me!)  

While I have been a make-up artist for years, once exposed to the world of esthetics I was hooked! As they say, knowledge is power. I have learned a great deal, not only from my education, but from my experience both personally and in the treatment room. I am more aware of what I put on my body, in my body, and how I treat my body. I have come to love my skin, it is mine and the only one I have.


Armed with the knowledge to find solutions for even the most problematic skin and coupled with a love of nurturing people, I have found a calling and why I wanted to establish Respite Spa.


I’m striving to create a rejuvenating experience at Respite Spa that will leave you feeling better about yourself, whether that’s through a facial service, metabolic peel, make-up application, or simply more confident because you are hair free.
