Hello, I was born in Mesa , Arizona about 22 years ago. I have a beautiful daughter, Jaylee Rose who is 2 1/2 years old. She, no doubt, keeps me very very busy!!:). I was a student at Red Mountain High School from which I graduated. While attending high school, I was very active in the Jr ROTC program. My last year I was Sergeant and lead my batallion. I was active in participating with various charity groups such as American Cancer Society, Young Marines. I have , through Heart 2 Heart along with my mother, Loretta participated in various fundraising events in the community.
I attended Southwest Institute of Natural Aesthetics three years ago. I graduated and became licensed. My interests are in helping others to feel beautiful both inside and outside. I specialize in microdermabrasion and dermaplane resurfacing treatments.I have an interest in make-up artistry and eventually will offer this as part of our services. I enjoy working with those less privileged to allow them the opportunity to feel the beauty that lies within.
I am creating a jewelry line called BUTTERFLYJEWELRY. This jewelry is in honor of a very close friend of mine who was killed in a car accident last December. She was all of 22 years old . She was a creative, beautiful, and spiritual person who also made this jewelry. It is made of a mixture of glass beads, natural fiber rope and charms. I am donating 100% of the proceeds from this jewelry to families who have lost loved ones suddenly and to the American Cancer Society. Please help others feel the connection, the Spirit of Love that transforms and transcends time---just as a BUTTERFLY does.
