surrounded by a white picket fence! I love what I do and love to offer great
treatments to my clients and friends, providing a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere. My treatments and specialized products will make you feel truly pampered!

As a skincare professional for the past 17+ years I have made it a priority that every client is able

to enjoy their treatment in a clean environment. I have always followed California State Board

guidelines for sanitation and disinfecting practices but am taking those guides a step further by

following CDC recommendations as well, to best protect my clients.


  • The cottage has been thoroughly deep cleaned and sanitized

  • Appointments will be scheduled further apart to allow extra time for disinfecting all surfaces and tools

  • If you arrive to your appointment early and you would rather not wait in the lobby, please text me and I will let you know when to come inside

  • Face coverings are required at this time but may be removed if necessary during your service

  • You will have access to sinks for hand washing in the Treatment Room and Bathroom, plus hand sanitizer in the Treatment Room and Lobby

  • If you're feeling any symptoms (fever, shortness of breath, cough) or if you've been exposed to someone that has tested positive for COVID-19, please let me know and we will reschedule your appointment

  • Contactless Payment by Venmo and Apple Pay are encouraged but as always I accept Cards, Checks, and Cash

I am using Rejuvenate brand cleaning products which are hospital-grade

disinfectants powered by Accelerated Hydrogen Peroxide that is EPA and FDA registered,

non-irritating to the skin and eyes, and also fragrance-free. ​All cleaning products are state board

compliant and have been tested for safety and effectiveness.

I have taken training courses and been certified in the following...

Barbicide Sanitation & Disinfection Practices
Barbicide COVID-19 for the Professional Beauty Industry
Rejuvenate Infection Prevention
Universal Companies Sanitation Workshop

Milady Infection Control

Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions!
I appreciate your patience and support over the past few months!
