I haven’t always been so passionate about skin care. I was Blessed with good genes, but as I began to get older the effects of sun exposure surfaced – skin care become a must. After graduating from Tyler Jr. College in 1997, I immediately began my nursing career in the field of Dermatology – Derm became my passion. As aesthetics became more mainstream my love for facial cosmetics developed and I soon recognized the lifechanging effects of facial products and procedures. I dreamed of making a difference and one day owning a Med Spa.
In April of 2013 - Mélange was born.
I love getting to know my clients and I take pride in providing them with the BEST treatment options available. Depend on me to provide honest advice regarding your skin care and anti-aging goals. Some of my favorite products include, Botox, Juvederm and Skin Pen. All products used at Melange are FDA approved and provide an affordable alternative to surgery.
My passion for skincare started at a young age as I watched my mother care for her beautiful complexion. She instilled in me the importance of taking care of my skin, so during my early teen years, I started staying out of the sun and using anti-aging products. I truly believe consistent use of a daily skin care regimen is the cornerstone to having beautiful skin and aging well.
I did not set out to be a nurse injector. I received Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Nutrition from the University of Kentucky and planned to be a dietitian. However, life had other plans. My husband was diagnosed with cancer in 2004, and I spent years out of the workforce caring for him. When it was time to start working again, I decided to pursue my passion. I enrolled in nursing school with the aim of becoming an aesthetic nurse injector. Graduating with a Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing from the University of Texas at Arlington in 2016, I started at Melange soon after. I enjoy building relationships with clients and helping them to fulfill their skin and anti-aging goals.
Some of my favorite products are Jan Marini CleanZyme cleanser, Bioglycolic cleanser and SkinZyme mask, I use these nearly everyday to keep my complexion smooth and bright. My favorite anti-aging procedures are botox, VIVA skin resurfacing, skinpen, and chemical peels.
After raising 2 boys and managing a terribly busy lifestyle as a full-time office manager in a Community Health Center in GA it was time for a change. We visited our son in Rockwall several times a year for 10 years and every time we visited, we said one day we will retire here. In January 2020, we decided it was time for me to retire from that terribly busy lifestyle and enjoy the simple things in life and each other. So, our journey began!
After we were settled in, I realized I really was not ready for retirement and started my search for employment. Those of you who know me know I am not one to be idle for long and always like to be busy. I was intrigued and interested in a new opportunity in a field I had not entered before and then I found a position opened with Mélange Beauty. I interviewed with Cheryl and Dave and immediately had a connection with both. I feel truly blessed to be given the opportunity to work with such amazing people and clients every day. I know God has a plan for all of us and my journey to Rockwall TX and Mélange Beauty was God’s plan for me.
I have learned so much about great skin care and all the products to keep your skin looking beautiful! I started using the Jan Marini Skin Care Management System and within a week I could not believe what a difference there was in my skin! I am also in LOVE with the Diamond Glow treatment along with the VIVA skin tightening treatment and Botox. I only wish I knew about all the great products and treatments earlier in my life.
When I am not at work, I have learned to enjoy the simple things in life like taking walks at the lake, enjoying the summer concerts on Thursday nights, the Farmer’s market (one of our favorites), exploring Canton First Monday’s Marketplace, enjoying a glass of wine on the patio, and our family time. We love Texas so much we just built our forever home in Royse City!
