It's really important to me to make women feel good in their own skin, I love helping boost their confidence.

“My business has grown almost solely on referrals and word of mouth. I have always believed that good work will sell itself. My work philosophy is to work hard and be kind and meet people where they are at. It is really important to me to make women feel good in their own skin and I love helping boost their confidence.”

In 2015, my sister gave me a gentle nudge to learn about microblading. I had been obsessed with eyebrows since my pre-teens and she knew I would be great at it. I started in the makeup industry before college, but after graduating from the University of Florida in 2012, I left the beauty industry to work for a non-profit. My sister knew my true passion was helping women feel beautiful and she convinced me to take the leap and open a permanent makeup studio. 

In February 2016, Beauty Lounge & Co. opened in a small 120 sq. foot room and over the last seven years has moved twice as we have grown, landing in our forever home in November 2022. When I first opened, my focus was eyebrow permanent makeup services. I take great pride in knowing my team is highly educated, skilled and passionate! We provide our clients with the highest quality services, customized to them. We can make them look as natural or as glamorous as they like. 

When a client tells me how much easier their daily routine is or how they feel more confident rolling out of bed, I just love hearing that. Seeing how a subtle enhancement of their natural beauty can provide them with a more youthful look is one of my favorite things about my job.
