Lash Technician, Microneedling Specialist
Social Media Director
Fountain of Youth & Skin Care
Growing up I struggled with acne and nothing I used ever really worked. After my mom graduated from her Laser & Skincare program she came across a few skincare products that ended up clearing my acne and really made me fall in love with skincare. Though I never went to school for it, I did go to an acting school for two years and really learned a lot about myself. A couple of things I realized were that, I didn’t actually want to be an actress, I wanted to follow in my mom’s footsteps and get into the beauty industry. I decided to join my mom. I took an eyelash course and fell in love again. I’ve since taken a few more courses (eyelashes, microneedling & teeth whitening) and I’m always still learning. I take pride in my work and am very meticulous. I look forward to what the future has in store for Fountain of Youth and am very proud of what it has become.
