About Me

I began my career in the beauty industry over 15 years ago in Miami Beach, Florida one of the most fashionable cities in the country. Working with high end cosmetic brands including MAC, Chanel, Lancome, Laura Mercier, and Bobbi Brown allowed me to create my own personal style. My philosophy in makeup is to enhance your unique natural beauty, from soft and natural to red carpet ready, my goal is that my client always feels beautiful and relaxed.

Throughout my career, I've been fortunate to have participated in various fashion events including Fashion Week in Miami Beach, Magic: fashion trade show in Las Vegas and local charity events throughout San Diego. My work has been featured on Fox 5 news San Diego, Spike TV, San Diego 6 the CW, and also published in local magazines such as Ocean Drive, GADA and Exquisite Weddings. I currently freelance with photographers in San Diego, Orange County and Los Angeles doing headshots, lifestyle, corporate and fashion photo shoots.

After many years living on the east coast, my husband and I decided to move back home to sunny California. When I’m not at work you will most likely find me at the beach with my family or close friends, I enjoy art festivals, anything vintage, photography and nature. I feel grateful to be in a career that allows me to help others look and feel their best.

I have been in the industry since 2000.
