The most important part of my life is my family and friends. They are the most valuable blessing and treasure to me!

I then went on to obtain my real estate license selling new construction and developed a love and passion for interior design, making a career out of it for years. My passion for medical aesthetics began when I started receiving services to reverse sun damage that developed over years from too much sun exposure as well as my desire to reverse the signs of aging. The results are amazing! I am blessed to have an amazing daughter who inspires me every day with her inner beauty, loving heart and soul and her undying passion for life.

I moved to Arizona 15 years ago and think it is the best place to live. One of my kids is still at home, and the other two are traveling around the world.
