"I am so inspired by the clients I work with on a daily basis. To play a role in the transformation of a person who initially feels insecure about a certain aspect of their appearance into someone who feels confident, empowered and beautiful is such a gift. Each of us deserves to look and feel our best, and I am honored to be a part of that pursuit for my clients!"

After over a decade of experience working as a medical assistant in the plastic surgery and dermatology specialties, Michele has fostered an immense appreciation for how feeling confident about your appearance can change your life. During her time at these practices, she saw firsthand how the latest advancements in cosmetic procedures such as Botox and laser skin treatments could genuinely impact a patient’s life and she knew she wanted to be a more significant part of that. As a result, Michele returned to school to advance her education. She became an RN in 2018 and is currently pursuing BSN at Mankato State.
Michele’s passion for this industry is personal, and she has a heightened sense of empathy when working with patients due to her experience of suffering facial asymmetry side effects from her past cancer treatment. To address this, she sought out Botox treatments to help restore symmetry to her features and experienced how healing it was for her to simply feel like she looked herself again. Michele believes that wanting to look your best isn’t vain or shallow. Feeling great about how you look can give you a sense of empowerment and confidence you need to live life with your best face forward.
