"I graduated from The Euro Institute and Washington Laser Institute as a Master Aesthetician in 2020. I have a passion for laser treatments and treat patients with the same care I would my own family member.
My aim is to address patients' concerns by tailoring a treatment plan based on the individual’s needs. I find it rewarding to work collaboratively with a patient and then put a treatment plan into action to help them realize their aesthetic goals."
I was born and raised in Russia and had a short career as a General Practitioner there. Upon moving to the United States, I attended the Aesthetics Northwest Institute in Bellevue to obtain my Master Aesthetician’s training.
I’ve always loved all things related to beauty and science. I appreciate that my job marries my two passions and I can provide patients with many options to address their aesthetic concerns."
I feel so fortunate to still be thriving in my career after 2 decades of practicing as a Master Aesthetician. I experienced what felt like a lifetime of suffering with melasma and adult acne. I struggled to find lasting solutions but it did help to pique my interest in Aesthetic Medicine.
In the early aughts, I enrolled in The International School of Beauty in Portland, Oregon. My training just further shaped my passion for skincare. I have since earned advanced laser certifications and I do all I can to stay abreast of the latest and greatest treatments in the field."
I am a lifelong resident of Washington state; born and raised in Sedro-Woolley. I attended nursing school at Gonzaga University and graduated Magna Cum Laude. My nursing career started on a fast-paced neurological unit then transitioned to cardiac medicine. I returned to Gonzaga to pursue a master’s degree in nursing and have been a board-certified Family Nurse Practitioner since 2016.
My interest in aesthetic medicine dates to high school when I underwent jaw surgery to correct an asymmetrical bite. My having been on the receiving end of beautification procedures, lends me insight into the patient's experience which, I believe, has made me a more empathic provider. Injection technique, safety, and continued education define my practice as a provider as I continually strive for the best outcomes for my patients.
