I have been involved in the skincare and permanent makeup industry for over 23 years. Beginning my career in Las Vegas, Nevada I was fortunate enough to work with some of the best in the industry. While following my passion in this fast paced, glamorous region I attained invaluable training and education that I have carried with me throughout my career. I worked for the Estee Lauder Corporation for 9 years in education, product development, and management. My close work with the Lauder family and executives allowed me to gain knowledge and experience in the area of makeup for photography, modeling, television, and local performers. As a sought after makeup artist, I thrived in my career becoming a national educator. It was a great time of growth and excitement in my career.
I moved to Sarasota in 2000, and it wasn’t long before I opened Lasting Looks of Sarasota. My passion has always been to create beautiful faces from the inside out. This lead me to believe that beautiful makeup comes from beautiful skin which can only be achieved from a healthy diet and lifestyle. In addition, I feel that a great permanent makeup artist must be highly skilled in conventional makeup as well. With an eye for detail, I create permanent makeup that is as unique as you are. I create natural looks for eyeliner and eyebrows with my specialty being areola/nipple restoration for breast cancer patients. As a licensed paramedical esthetician and permanent makeup artist I have partnered with some of the finest plastic surgeons and dermatologists in our area. I am regularly called upon to lecture at the Cancer Support Community, local events, country clubs and have been featured on two local television stations in support of women health.
I am pleased to introduce my fantastic team of like-minded professionals who look forward to assisting you in your skin care, makeup, and nutritional needs for a lifetime of healthy skin.
My career began in 1990 in my home town of Charleston, SC. where I received a degree from Charleston Cosmetology Institute. A couple of years later, I added to my education and made Esthetics my primary focus in an effort to solve my own skin problems.
Through my own trials with problematic skin, my desire to help others achieve a healthy complexion became a passion. I realized how interconnected what we do to our body is to what we put in it. Since then, I have made it my mission to nurture and nourish all our clients through natural treatments and healthful instruction.
Some of my specialties include the Non-surgical face lift technique/Micro current, Fire& Ice Stone facial and Microdermabrasion. I have also had experience in the treatment of teens/adults with acne and make-up techniques as well as lecturing on these topics at local events. I believe that real beauty on the outside is the direct result of the health of the body from within and I feel blessed to be part of the Lasting Looks team of like-minded therapists. I look forward to meeting you and helping you discover your best skin ever!

Description of Services:
"As an active person myself, I understand what it can mean to have an injury and/or muscle dysfunction that inhibits or disrupts an active lifestyle. Scheduling a therapeutic deep tissue massage with specific detail to restoring muscle function and assisting the healing process can make all the difference in the world. I offer 30, 60 or 90 minute massages that are intended to restore function, release trigger points and tension providing better mobility, flexibility and a general feeling of relaxation throughout the entire body. You will leave this experience with a feeling of relief and rejuvenation.
I believe with my intuitive skills, specific training, clinical background as a nurse and participation in sports such as bodybuilding and circuit training also give me an extraordinary and unique perspective that will help you to feel restored and renewed.
Please feel free to call me for additional information."
I decided that I wanted to go into make-up and skin care as a teen. I wanted to know how to take care of my skin after having horrible breakouts and irritation.
I'm a fully licensed Cosmetologist in Florida and have my Associates degree from State College of Florida in Theater. I'm a graduate of the Joe Blasco Make-Up School, the only accredited make-up school in the country.
After graduating from Joe Blasco, I worked in freelance make-up, interning on music videos as well as make-up and hair for student films in Los Angeles.
Upon my return to Florida, I worked at the Van Wezel, interned at Sarasota Opera House, and did make-up and hair for weddings before working in Orlando at Walt Disney World in their cosmetology department.
I am thrilled to join the Lasting Looks team and return to what I love best - skin care and make- up. I have a passion for helping others look and feel their best.
