Your Scarborough, Maine Esthetician

Welcome to my esthetician practice; glad you are here. I bring a multi-faceted approach to my clients in the treatment room, and draw on multiple modalities to individualize your experience— based on your goals, my clinical analysis and dedication to a holistic mapping to skin health.

My experience and education in the field began with an interest in making soaps and lotions at age 13, and experimenting with makeup and prescription topicals shortly after. While finishing my bachelors degree in Holistic Psychology, I worked as a make-up artist at the Prudential Center in Boston; working alongside licensed estheticians and mineral skincare lines focusing on sensitive skin.

A few year later, I moved to Arizona and attended the Southwest Institute of Natural Esthetics and graduated with a 4.0 in October 2014. I opened an aesthetics practice in Scottsdale and continued my education with classes at Scottsdale Community College in Maths, Chemistry, Anatomy & Physiology. In addition, I sought Master level training with Dermalogica of Scottsdale to include advanced waxing techniques and skin analysis.

In 2018, I moved to Portland and became licensed in the state of Maine. After settling back into the New England coast, I was employed to leg wax, bikini wax and body wax full-time and have had a specialty in Brazilian waxing now for several years.

I then established Asteria Aesthetics, LLC in 2019 and began a national Master’s study in aesthetics while waxing and introducing chemical peels and customized facial spa service. During the Covid-19 pandemic, I began a deep dive in product lines and new studies. In 2021, I moved my practice to Knightville, South Portland and dedicate the treatment room to my wonderful and exceptional clients, and meeting new faces each week.

Additionally, I spend a few hours each month supporting the Reiki program at the Dempsey Foundation for cancer patients. As the Reiki Lead, I help develop the program, support the volunteers and interface with the oncology clients. I am currently offering Oncology-safe facials as part of my practice as well.

There are a lot of options for licensed aestheticians / estheticians in Portland, Maine, so I appreciate your interest and coming this far in your own research to read my bio. I will also say that it is important to have a few specializations in a wide-ranging field such as aesthetics, and I am always happy to recommend competent practitioners who offer other specific services or have a need I cannot fulfill.

I look forward to getting to know you and finding your unique path to radiant, healthy skin and well-being! See you in the treatment room.
