I started my adult life like most people… completely lost…
I had no idea what I wanted or where to find my true passion. I was, however, very determined to find my happy place. Very determined to find something that I loved and very determined to find something that in my own way might help people, I found that in skincare.
I actually started off as a nanny some odd years ago for an amazing dermatologist who is very well known for paving the way in cutting edge laser technology. One day on a whim, she tasked me with various chores at her private practice to help out for the day. It was here that I instantly fell in love. It’s truly a beautiful thing to see someone with the lack of confidence (due to a skin condition or ailment) come to the office with a look of desperation knowing you are able to help.
After that day, I never returned to childcare work. Dr. Lee was my blessing in disguise! I told her how amazing I thought her practice was, and she allowed me to stay! I began with executive assistant work, but soon decided that wasn’t enough for me, so I went to school and studied for my aesthetician license. Upon graduating, I met with her and expressed my dream of building a spa department within the practice, and she agreed!
It’s crazy how God works because I could have nannied for anyone, but that family chose me. Dr. Lee could have kept me as a nanny, but she placed me in the office, and while she could have looked at me like I was crazy when I shared my dreams with her, she didn’t. I built the spa department and worked for years specializing in hyper pigmentation and anti-aging treatments until it was time for me to build something that was one-hundred percent mine.
I decided to make the move to Los Angeles. I created a new menu with treatments I wholeheartedly believe in and shaped a spa experience like no other. An experience that is results driven but still maintains the luxury feel of a five-star day spa, all in the comfort and privacy of your home… thus, Skin By Liv was born.
