I have always been fascinated with the beauty industry. I started my career as a professionally trained makeup artist and shortly after, I became an aesthetician.

After working for several local doctors, I decided to open Allure medical almost seven years ago. In 2020, I expanded and opened Allure Institute of Laser and Medical Esthetics.
