Biography 

The connection we have with our skin to our whole self has always been a fascinating one to me.  It amazes me that our skin has the ability to mirror our internal, physical, and emotional health, and I am passionate about finding that connection to be able to share and educate clients about the health of their skin so that they can live confidently and beautifully.

I am a Licensed Esthetician, and Certified in Pastiche Advanced Skin Analysis, a method to determine the root cause of skin conditions.  In addition, I am also Certified in Microneedling under the training of Dr. Lance Setterfield.  Although facials are my main focus, I offer my other Esthetic favourites and have completed massage training including Deep Flow Foundation and Lomi Lomi, which I like to incorporate into treatments as much as possible to combine results with relaxation.

I was inspired to start Sound Skincare because I want to provide a treatment that will leave clients not only feeling relaxed and good about themselves, but with the results that advanced skin therapy offers.  I have set out to establish my independence as a Skin Therapist and truly believe in the importance of building trust with my clients inside and outside of the treatment room, in order to educate them about skin science and how they can achieve and maintain healthy skin.

Having lived on Vancouver Island for almost ten years, I have found my place in Tofino.  Nature has been a huge inspiration in my holistic approach to skincare, and using quality, clean products and treatments that deliver actual results is the ultimate goal at Sound Skincare.

When I am not in the treatment room, I love to adventure, and am always up for anything!  I can often be found exploring my West Coast home- camping, hiking, and beach walks with friends, or relaxing at home with my partner and dog. I also LOVE to travel- Southeast Asia, Indonesia, Fiji, Mexico and most recently a solo trip to Sri Lanka. Having lived in Australia for almost three years, I have a deep appreciation for exploring the world wherever and whenever I can.

The name Sound has a double meaning: To Be Whole and Healthy; An Arm of the Ocean.  To me, this perfectly aligns my philosophy of skincare with the surrounding coastal beauty of Tofino.  At Sound Skincare, it is my utmost pleasure to welcome you to my warm and cozy West Coast space, where my time is yours.
