In 2017, she launched her Levitate Beauty BlogInstagram, and TikTok where she focuses on promoting skin positivity & ending the stigma of acne through simple skin tips. Seeing the impact she’s had on others by sharing her own personal skin journey and knowledge inspired her to start her career in esthetics.

She believes that everyone’s skin is incredibly unique and that there is no one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to skincare. She focuses on customized treatments that honor each client’s concerns and she empowers them with the knowledge they need to reach their skin goals in a non-judgemental and relaxing environment.
