Skin Care Tip
Retinol, Retinol, Retinol...and SPF! Retinol and SPF are the two most important products you can implement into your skincare routine. Retinol is essential for skin cell turnover, firm skin, and even skin tone. Also, adding SPF into your daily routine will help to protect your skin from sun damage.
Favorite Med Spa Treatment
My favorite med spa treatments are microneedling and chemical peels! Microneedling stimulates collagen, which is a great option for my patients looking for firmer, more youthful looking skin. Chemical peels are my go-to recommendation for my patients that struggle with acne or hyperpigmentation.

My Favorite Client Transformation Stories
Several years ago, I had a patient who came to me with horrible acne, probably the worst I have ever seen. With proper skin care treatments, a strict at-home skincare routine, and an adjustment in her diet, we were able to completely transform her skin. If you saw her today you would never guess that she suffered from acne in the past. The process was long and required consistency on both ends, but the results were well worth the wait! I will never forget the look on her face! I always preach to my patients that the skin is the largest organ in the body, and clear skin doesn't just happen overnight. Consistent treatments and a great at-home skin care regimen can do wonders for the skin!
My Greatest Challenge
My greatest challenge at the moment is juggling full-time esthetician work at The Skin Center while pursuing a degree in nursing at UPMC Shadyside School of Nursing. When I am not at work, I am at home studying for countless hours to get my nursing degree. My ultimate goal is to become an RN to combine my expertise in skincare and injectables to meet my patient's needs!
What I Love Most About My Work
I have always believed that the more confident you are in the way you look, the more confident you are in every aspect of your daily life. The best part of my job is working with my beautiful patients and restoring their confidence. Whether it's helping patients who struggle with acne, dry skin, sun damage, or loose/sagging skin, I love being a part of each patient's skincare journey and seeing their final results!
