Real beauty comes from an irrepressible inner glow radiating health and vitality. Helping women shine is my passion. I want every woman to love being gorgeously healthy.
My path to discovering real beauty began years ago when I went to cosmetology school. I was fortunate to get into Vidal Sassoon at a time when it really was “the” place to be. But Sassoon was all about hair. And while I enjoyed the art of hairstyling, it was never quite enough. I loved makeup too.
So after Sassoon I studied theatrical makeup in college, and this gave me a great foundation to build upon. I went on to study with Vogue’s famous makeup artist, Val Garland. What an inspiring way to learn about fashion and makeup! I am proud to have been a member of the first graduating class of her amazing school where I had the opportunity to develop my skills and receive mentoring from the best of the best.
Makeup, hairstyling, skin care — this has always been fun to me, but I knew there was more to beauty than that. What was it that made the difference between pretty and beautiful? Looking for clues, I pursued aromatherapy. I studied with respected aromatherapists in France, and was one of the early pioneers in working with essential oils. I came to appreciate the importance of using natural products.
I delved into skin care and cosmetics to discover they’re loaded with toxins and there is, to this day, little regulation about what goes into them. Chemical-free cosmetics weren’t just good for the environment. Getting rid of those toxins was essential to our health. The link between beauty and health double-clicked.
More recently my obsession with all things healthy in relationship to beauty and wellness has taken me into some exciting new directions. I became certified as an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach. After all, I’ve come to realize that health is the essential element of real beauty.
I’ve worked with Tarot for more than 30 years, and I have also studied other esoteric fields, such as oracles, crystals, chromotherapy, the chakra system, and Ayurvedic and Chinese systems of healing. All of these have become part of my medicine bag of health and beauty knowledge.
I love teaching women how to transform their lives so they can have the vitality and confidence they need to express their own special gifts and talents. This is where the “Goddess” comes into play. The divine feminine has a lot to offer modern women.
My approach to health and beauty is practical and intuitive, calling on both the latest knowledge and wise, ancient traditions. As a beauty expert and health coach, I take a whole-person approach to helping women embody their true beauty so they glow inside and out — gorgeously healthy!
