What I love about the career I have chosen is that I can help people. I want to help people. Period. I know it sounds cliché for a nurse to say, but it’s truly what I strive for. It can vary from assisting those ill in the hospital, to helping those wanting to improve their skin texture, to administering IV therapy to boost immunity. Acneic skin, no problem. I understand each person has insecurities and I want to help get rid of them. I don’t believe in changing anyone, I believe in overall wellness, and, to keep it plain and simple, I want to help people feel good. At United Shades of Skin, I aim to create a sense of comfort and openness for each of my clients.
