I decided to pursue a career as an Esthetician at Marinello School of Beauty in Santa Clara. It was during my facials, I realized how much I thoroughly enjoyed providing relaxation for my clients. That’s when I turned to study different massage modalities at Mckinnon Body Therapy Center in Oakland. I am constantly updating my education to stay up to date with the latest trends. As a licensed Massage Practitioner and Esthetician, and I love making people feel better everyday-that is my passion. I am proud to be the owner of Bare Luminance, my own little slice of heaven.
