I still can’t believe that I’m here; I’ve made it! It’s been a long road to get here, but I’m finally in the industry that I love, executing the treatments that fuel me.
I worked as a critical care Registered Nurse (RN) for 5 years before receiving my Master’s Degree in Nursing and becoming a Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP). I chose to go down that strenuous path in the hopes that larger, more significant doors would open for my future… since becoming an FNP meant I’d be able to prescribe, diagnose, and just overall, make a bigger difference in people’s lives. However, in my first NP position, I found myself still feeling very unfulfilled. Primary care was exhausting, while other specialties felt like plain “work.” Fast forward to 2018, a life-altering event put me in the arms of medical aesthetics, a career I’d never even thought of before. I started working at Skin by Lovely in Portland, where I received invaluable training from a leader in the industry. Six months later, I started my own business, operating within Rustic Roots Day Spa, and I’ve NEVER been happier!
Born and raised in “The Couve,” I spend most of my free time with my family and goofy pups, fishing on the Columbia River!

Why aesthetic nursing?
My passion for skincare began long before Faces in Bloom's operations. When I met Sarah, my now wife and business partner, I had severe cystic acne on my face, chest, and back. I tried numerous treatments and gave up, leaving myself with the thought that I would live with that skin condition for the rest of my life. Sarah showed me treatments that I never know existed, which changed my skin and my confidence!
How I got here:
After completing my nursing degree at Clark College, I accepted a residency position at a local hospital where I learned that nursing is much more than taking care of sick people, but rather helping people through their lowest of lows. During this time, I learned that connection and showing compassion is the key to making someone feel more comfortable with your care. My knowledge of human anatomy, precision technique, and meticulous attention to detail come from my 3 years of hospital nursing experience. I wouldn't change a thing about how I got to where I am now!
The career change:
I never thought that my heart would draw me into becoming an aesthetic nurse specialist, but after watching my wife make so many positive impacts on others' lives, I knew it would be a rewarding career. I will do everything that I can to help you achieve your skincare goals!
I love aesthetics and all things health and wellness. I started my nursing career in cosmetic surgery where my love for the beauty industry started. I then spent five years working in women’s health and fertility. I am so excited to be at Faces in Bloom, where I am combining my love for connecting with patients with the art of aesthetics.
My goal as a provider is to encourage and enhance your natural beauty and confidence. I work closely with each patient, so we can tailor the treatment plan to reach goals that make each individual feel beautiful in their own skin.
When I am not at Faces in Bloom, you can find me outside on an adventure with my husband, Cameron. We love to mountain bike, backcountry ski, and backpack all around the beautiful PNW.
"Everyone is deserving of self-care and confidence!"
My career in the medical field started 12 years ago when I graduated with my Associates Degree, majoring in Science. Since then, I have been working in the medical field as a medical assistant and then moving to the business side of the industry for the last 8 years.
I have always had a passion for aesthetics and helping others feel their best. Faces in Bloom has brought me further joy and passion to my career; I love being able to oversee the day to day operations!
When I'm not at Faces in Bloom, I enjoy spending time with my husband and 2 boys. Watching my boys play sports, traveling, shopping, and volunteering my time in the community are my main hobbies.
