Stacy's story

I grew up in Nashville, TN with my mother. She worked long hours at a hospital but still made time for self-care and would share these rituals with me. This led me to become somewhat of a science nerd and I eventually graduated from The University of North Carolina with a degree in Ecology. My science background combined with my innate love of skincare, that was instilled in me at a young age, guided me to my next journey to become an Esthetician. Following college I developed a hormone imbalance that took years to fix and negatively affected my skin. After exhausting all western medicine options, I started to work with alternative & naturopathic medicine practitioners. Holistic medicine is what truly healed my condition and once I was able to heal internally, my skin condition cleared. This was the most influential experience that motivated me to start my business. Combining my love of science, holistic medicine with skincare created the perfect combination to understand and offer integrative skincare services. Great skin does start from within and that it our philosophy at my studio. My passion for integrative skincare not only worked for myself but my experience allows me to help and support others.
