My beauty journey began over thirty years ago. After a decade in cosmetic sales, I went to work for a plastic surgeon. My job was to provide pre – and postsurgical skincare support for patients. During my time in the clinic I saw how afraid women were to undergo the procedures. Recovery was long and painful and things didn’t always go as planned. After surgery too many women ended up no longer looking like themselves.
The real conflict came at home. My teenage daughters were both struggling with their own self-image. Hearing my precious girls echoing the same judgments and disgust for their bodies as the women in the clinic broke my heart.
I realized that the industry I had invested so much of my life in was a sham. It sent women chasing youth and perfection at the cost of themselves. Seeing my own beautiful daughters adopting the same negative attitude toward their appearance was a wake-up call.
I left the clinic and turned toward a more holistic approach to beauty and health. I began to study natural healing and energy work. While traveling, I witnessed the remarkable way European women aged with confidence and grace. This was a sharp contrast to my own experience and I knew I wanted to find a way to bring these secrets back home.
