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.

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.

Originally from Chicago, I come to Lasting Looks with 15 years experience in the professional makeup and skincare industry.
Receiving training from LA, Chicago & New Jersey, I have done makeup for numerous bridal parties, fashion shows and photo shoots. At this point in my career, I wanted to make these beautiful faces I was working on beautiful from within. This is when I moved to Sarasota in '05 and became a licensed Esthetician, and for the last 2 years I have added advanced medical aesthetic services to my experience.
