The dream became a reality in 1996 when I was afforded the opportunity to open Healing Hands Spa. Having been in the beauty industry since a teenager, I was excited to open my own business and face all the challenges and rewards it had to offer. Having received training in all aspects of the spa industry from hair and nails, to massage therapy and esthetics, I felt equipped for this new chapter.
Recently I achieved "Expert" status with Dermalogica, the skin care company I have used personally and professionally for over 20 years.
This training and certification has been an exciting accomplishment that I am thrilled to share with my clients.
In addition, my professional make-up training and applications are one of my favorite services we provide, and are a great compliment to our skin care line. Our Youngblood cosmetics, made with the finest ingredients, is a great pairing for healthy, glowing skin from the inside out.

MEET THE STAFF
Esthetician-skin care therapist for face and body, Certified Reflexologist, Doctor of Naturopathy.
"Love what you do and you will never work a day in your life" is an adage I truly believe. I feel privileged daily to be able to help my clients feel and look better than when they walked in. Working with what you are passionate about makes all the difference. I provide products and treatments that I trust and use personally, and am therefore, able to share from my own experience.
Traveling extensively has provided me with a world-class skin care and body work education. I have received Postgraduate honors from the International Dermal Institute and Expert status with Dermalogica in product knowledge and protocols. The natural progression of wanting to more fully be of help to those already in my care, led me to pursue a Doctor of Naturopathy. I would like to thank my clients for the confidence they have placed in me, as well as for their friendship and loyalty. I appreciate each one.
Professional Skin Therapist
I joined the Healing Hands team as a professional skin therapist and waxing specialist in 2019! My interest in skincare began over a decade ago when I dealt with chronic acne and inflammation. This challenged me to look deeper into understanding how our largest organ, the skin, functions.
My belief is that our skin often communicates and reflects what is happening internally. Through years of learning how to care for my own complexion, I made the decision to become an esthetician because of a growing desire to help educate others on skin health.
I live in downtown Springfield with my husband, Luke, and enjoy reading, being outside, dark chocolate and hot yoga.
