So happy to have you here. I’m Ashley, and I’m not just an esthetician. I’m a cheetah print- obsessed, plant loving, taco eating, believer of Christ just trying to make a difference in the world. I strive to make this a safe place for all. Where being kind, real, and loving is encouraged but being perfect isn’t expected. Because come on we both know we aren’t perfect. My goal is to make you feel beautiful in your own skin and to simply enhance the already perfect and wonderfully made canvas that is you. (Unless you want to look like a completely different person, we can do that too😉). Seriously though, I hope you stay a while and have fun while you’re here. I can’t wait to have you in my chair or (treatment) bed!
I often get asked if I always knew I wanted to become an esthetician. Truth is, yes.... but no.
One of my fondest memories from growing up was sitting at the table with my mom and making arts and crafts. Everything from painting, building, sewing, cutting, to gluing, folding, and coloring. I owe my creativity to her.
Having this creative passion inside of me is what lead me to start experimenting with makeup, hair, and nails. My little sister is witness to the 100 million times I bribed her with something to get her to be my model and practice my craft.
By the time I was in high school, friends lined up to get their makeup done for parties, dances, photo shoots, events, etc. I felt a fire light up inside of me everytime someone gave me the privilege to practice on their beautiful face.
My love for skincare started somewhere around the age of 14, as my own struggle with acne inspired me to learn all the ins and outs of product formulas, ingredients, treatments and skin as a whole.
Nonetheless, pressure from teachers, administrators, and societies norm led me to believe I needed to find a “real” career. So I spent years trying to force a passion for other fields that I had no genuine interest in. Until it clicked, this isn’t what I was created to do.
I cannot remember the time or place that I found out what an esthetician was or what they did, But I will never forget the feeling I had when I realized I could do what I loved as a career.
So my answer is yes. I did always know this is what I wanted to do, but it took me a while to fully pursue it.
