 Katie decided to turn her love of makeup and skin into a full-fledged career and has been fortunate to work with incredible plastic surgeons, injectors, and medical estheticians for over 20 years in various medical spas and plastic surgeons' offices in Minneapolis and Texas. After years of working in aesthetic sales, she decided to get her license as a Medical Aesthetician. She was nominated and placed in the top 3 for “Favorite Beauty Treatment Provider” in the Austin, Texas Best of Best competition! She also became an Aesthetic Educator teaching advanced aesthetic techniques in Micro-needling, Chemical Peels, Dermaplaning, Microdermabrasion, Hydro-dermabrasion, and Neurotoxin injections. Because of her experience conducting skincare and dermal filler consultations and working with many different skin types and age groups over the years, Katie takes a very artistic approach to skincare and anti-aging treatments. She considers the entire canvas and provides a thorough treatment plan for skin renewal and rejuvenation. She says that “anti-aging and healthy skin takes a multi-faceted approach and, most importantly, requires maintenance and care.” Her goal is to ensure that clients come away feeling like the best version of themselves because Katie's opinion is: “When we feel our best on the outside, our inner beauty is truly what is revealed.”
