As a proud wife of a Navy fighter pilot and mom of two, she has lived all over the country eventually settling down in her husband’s hometown of Monmouth Beach in 2009. Her lifelong interest in everything beauty and skin care slowly morphed into a career, turning that interest into a passion to learn as much as she could and teach whoever would listen. After her extensive skin care training she found herself missing that creative spark and found her niche in the artistry of permanent makeup. And FACE FORWARD was born. Her ultimate goal is to create the most beautiful and natural looking no makeup look and offer skin care treatments and products that aren’t just “trendy” but are proven and effectively transform our skin’s appearance from the inside and out. FACE FORWARD offers exactly these services in a beautiful setting where you can kick off your shoes, plug in your computer, take that Zoom call and occasionally enjoy a glass of Prosecco. Fun fact – she nearly embarked on an interior design path with Pottery Barn prior to enrolling in her first permanent cosmetics venture. Turns out, couches are not forever no matter how much we spend on them.

Not like a sing-in-the-shower Saturday Night Live skit but since she has made a few callbacks for The Voice – we might be able to give our Spotify playlist a break and let her takeover.  She is a lover of animals and dreams of owning a horse one day.
