After growing up in a small town in North Carolina, I knew I needed to get out and experience life. For a good 6 years, I traveled city to city trying the find the perfect fit for me! Although I loved the adventure, I decided to go back to school and settle down! With that, I found myslef with a full scholarship to Tulane University in New Orleans. My first visit to New Orleans had me say, "There is no way that I can call this home" but that's just what I have done. Almost 14 years later, I have become completely invested in my city and my career! Although this city can keep you busy with festivals, parties, parades and the Saints; it can also be one of the most magical, inspirational cities in the world. My experiences in life have not only molded who I am personally, but professionally! Most would call me a bit loud with a shy edge, lovable yet sarcastic and a hard worker that is disciplined, goal-oriented and creative!

    I am new to Planet Beach…. I am loving the LED facial and the hydration pod the most. I suffer with Lupus, Sjogren’s and some other unpleasant lifelong ailments. I have terrible dry skin that is super sensitive. I have finally found a way to hydrate my face… I feel renewed after each facial. The Hydration pod is AMAZING… I never imagined feeling so silky smooth ever again but with PB Contour spray oil ( organic, pure and fantastic smelling !) and 25 minutes in the pod I am a new person… I am over joyed!!! Thank you Planet Beach!!!!
