Microblading Artist, Emerald Brows Co.
Microblading is a form of semi-permanent cosmetic tatooing that enhances the appearance of eyebrows with pigment creating definition, fullness and a proper shape. It can totally change your brow game! I have been a certified microblading artist since early 2018 and offer a variety of techniques to suit your style. Microblading , microshading, powder ombre and combination brows are all available services. I also offer faux freckles for anyone wanted that sweet sunkissed look. I absolutely fell in love with not only the process of microblading, but the healed results it can achieve. I began my own brow business in hopes of helping others feel beautiful and confident in their own skin! I look forward to helping you acheive the perfect brows!

Renewed Wellness + Laser Therapy
In 37yrs as an LPN, I have seen many people try & cope with various types of pain which recently led me to LowLevel Light Therapy (also known as Photobiomodulation) This is a simple, pain-free treatment which takes 30min to 1 hour per session. This therapeutic treatment uses red & near infrared wavelengths of light energy which produce a reaction at a cellular level, to promote healing and reduce inflammation. I am able to treat many ailments from skin disorders, Arthritis, musculoskeletal injuries, wound healing & soft tissue injuries. My goal is to see my clients improve & be able to return to activities they once enjoyed! When I’m not working, I enjoy being outdoors at the lake, hitting the slopes in the mountains and keeping up to my husband & 3 adult children.
