I am an educator, skin-enthusiast, and passionate advocate for knowing what your beauty and health products are made of. For almost two decades I navigated through delayed puberty to growth hormone replacement to the subsequent awesome side-affects of those treatments (acne, limp, fragile hair and mood swings) without respite. After being told by a doctor that I would need to take medication for the rest of my life and would need to accept that, I had had enough. It’s this moment that has brought me to where I am today…
Empowering women to take control of their bodies so that their inner beauty matches their outer beauty.
Through research, trial and error, and tears and frustration, I cleared my acne, brought back glow and energy to my body, and got off my medication. By overcoming many challenges, my self-confidence and self-worth were returned. I have one goal in mind: provide high-quality, reliable, and sometimes funny advice on all things skincare, health, and wellness. I know that every step and product counts and that no one regrets taking care of themselves, but we do regret when we waste our time on products, methods and routines that poison our bodies and provide us with ZERO results. Living that former pimple life is possible. People who know and work with me would describe me as bold, kind, fierce, protective, intentional, patient, and relentless.
