I have been in the beauty industry for 11+ years. Makeup was my first baby. This developed my eye for perfection early on. Doing makeup was my passion and in my mind the techniques I developed were to enhance what we already have naturally.
My outlook switched a bit when I had the realization that going to the source and focusing on our skin and skincare is what makes us as humans feel comfortable with ourselves. This makes us beautiful people. Taking care of the inner first: what we eat, what we wear, what we invest ourselves into.
My career has been incredible, many ups and downs, as this is what life’s about, but these experiences (good, bad, and beautiful) have provided me with some amazing resources to be able to perfect my crafts with the ability invest into people the way my heart loves to. Lashing, skincare, waxing, and brows are a large part of the services I’ve done over the years.
Being at Melt has allowed me the opportunity to bring back body waxing services and I’m super happy taking care and giving people comfortable and thorough experiences that they can’t get at any ole’ average spot. When you think of me as your esthetician, think of me as your friend too. I’ve got you!

As the only wax artist at melt currently, tell us how you started in this artistry + share some insight into why waxing is so wonderful!
Waxing was one of the first services I’d ever given when I started my esthetics career. Once I started I really enjoyed it because I did it so often and got so good at it! We like waxing for various different reasons and to me waxing is king.
There are a few ways of getting it done and lots of different kinds of wax. But the general consensus is the same; waxing is convenient.
#1) If you deal with terrible razor burn? Gone #2) If you hate how quickly your hair grows back? Eliminated #3) If you deal with ingrown hair? Exfoliate!
If you decide to get any body waxing done with me you’ll be in gentle hands. This can be an intimate and uncomfortable service so as someone who has also been waxed, I try to make sure to facilitate an easy and comfortable experience. I often times hear from experienced waxee’s that I’m the least painful wax they’ve received.
All of this said, I hope to be the wax artist here at Melt that you decide to trust in!
