Skincare Therapist, Licensed Esthetician,
Facials/Massage & Waxing
I want you to step out of Kim & Co. feeling exceptional, indulged, and completely catered to.
It’s my goal to provide you with professional and friendly service each and every time you step into my room. Whether you come see me for one of my signature Dermalogica facials ,a relaxing massage, or for a professional body wax service.
I became a Licensed Esthetician in 2001 and began working at the Kim & Co Salon & Day Spa in San Luis Obispo shortly afterwards.
To this day I love learning about skin health, the latest findings, and discoveries. I also am a Dermalogica skin therapist, and offer their high-end products and facial services.
This profession has allowed me to care for my clients in a personal and direct way. I love that I am able to impact their life by helping them discover healthier and more radiant skin. If they’re sore or stressed, I can soothe and improve their day with a decadent massage.
And who doesn’t love heading out to the local beaches after a professional bikini or brazilian wax service?

Favorite Current Trend
One of my favorite trends is the glittery gel polishes. Used to be glitter was always bumpy, but now you can have the blingy look with a glass finish. I use the state of the art LED light that cures in 30 seconds & not the controversial UV lamp.
