Erica

Erica

Esthetician

In her 20s, Erica became interested in skin care because of her own problematic skin.  This led her to learning more about skin care leading her to getting her esthetics license in 2017.  Her passion and focus is to educate her clients on all their choices of skin care services including proper home care that meets their skin care goals.  Her goal at the end of a session with a client is they leave with a deep sense of serenity and confidence they can achieve their skin care goals. When Erica is not in the office she loves spending time with her grandkids and performing with her band.

Since her oldest son was 3 years old she’s been coaching him in baseball and that time spent together on the baseball field is something she loves being a part of.

Kate also has a love for animals and treats all her animals like her children.
