Owner of Live by Skin + Esthetician of 12+ years

Over ten years ago, I made the choice to enter the skin care industry which paved the road towards discovering my passion of skin health, and helping clients and customers feel confident and beautiful in their bare skin.

For as long as I can remember, I have wanted to own a business where I had control over the products entering my clients' skin and the facial protocols I was offering. One day, in July of 2019, I spent all day walking up and down the beach, imagining and manifesting what I would offer in a business of my own. It was on this day that Live by Skin came to life.

I take great pride in transforming my clients' skin, confidence, and home care regimens through therapeutic treatments and science-driven home care regimens. I specialize in acne treatments, and am a Face Reality Certified Provider, the leading certification for acne specialists in the country.  I also hold many other certifications, such as ProCell Microchanneling, chemical peels, Dermaplane Pro, LED Therapy, and many more..

It is with great pride that I share that Live by Skin is one of the leading destinations in the Boston, Massachusetts area for acne therapies.  Our Acne Bootcamp has cleared hundreds of individuals and has guided them towards healthy skin.

our promise

Live by Skin is dedicated to providing customers with products that are effective, backed by science, and cruelty free.

What sets us apart from other online retailers and spas, is that we have single-handedly tried each and every product that we offer. Before any item enters our store, or before any facial protocol is performed, it has been tested time and time again to ensure that it works. Live by Skin is one of few spas in Woburn, Massachusetts (and the Boston Area) that are dedicated to cruelty free, yet effective skincare and facials.

Live by Skin believes that results derive from a marriage between in office treatments, homecare, and lifestyle changes.  Your skin is the biggest organ of your body, skincare is health care!  We are dedicated to providing you with easy-to-follow guidance to reaching your goals.
