PA-C, MPAS, Owner of Skin Appeal & Mikel Kristi Skin Care, Best-Selling Author
With over 20 years of experience in medical aesthetics and skin rejuvenation, I am passionate about ensuring that my patients get the best results and achieve their anti-aging goals. I believe in providing an understanding of the aging process and helping my patients age as gracefully as they choose. Aging is inevitable but looking aged is a choice.
In 2013, I opened Skin Appeal, which quickly rose to the top of the game because of my direct and no-nonsense approach to taking care of the skin on a variety of different levels. As an avid long-distance runner and triathlete, I know what the brutal environment of the desert can do to the skin. This was the perfect muse for me to build a skincare line around. Shorty after opening Skin Appeal, I decided to create a plant-based cosmeceutical skincare line that restores the skin’s natural functions. I wanted highly effective products that improve the health of the skin and deliver results that my patients would love. The product line, Mikel Kristi, which started with grass roots beginnings, has quickly escalated to cult status among its many devotees. After nearly 20 years in the medical aesthetics business, thousands of hours problem solving with clients, and countless awards in the field, I felt it was time to spread the word about intelligent skincare and anti-aging to the masses. My book, “Your Beauty Advocate: A No-Nonsense Guide to Age Defying Skin Care,” quickly became a best-seller and an invaluable guide to many. I am passionate and driven about revealing how to deeply impact the health and wellbeing of the skin and achieving ageless beauty by empowering you with knowledge.
When I am not working with clients, I am playing with my beloved dogs, making wine with my husband, enjoying nature, and traveling the world to see and experience all of what life has to offer.
Nurse Practitioner, FNP-BC
I am your Nurse Practitioner here at Skin Appeal. As a registered nurse, I began my career at the bedside, caring for critically ill patients in the cardiovascular intensive care unit. I then went on to hold additional roles as a registered nurse, eventually becoming a critical care resource nurse, rapid response team member, and nurse manager at the world-renowned Canyon Ranch. In 2017, I completed my advanced practice nursing degree, graduating with honors from Northern Arizona University, and practiced in both urgent care and primary care settings.
I was thrilled to accept my position at Skin Appeal in early 2021, and leading the Lifestyle Weight Management Program & Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Program. Having trained under the incredibly talented and celebrated Christy Hall, PA, MPAS, I will also be providing skin and body rejuvenation services as well as the wide array of injectables offered at Skin Appeal. Like Christy, I hopes to educate and provide individuals with the tools necessary to become the healthiest and most confident version of themselves.
In my spare time I love to be outdoors. Hiking is always on my list. I have a love for all things Halloween, but there is nothing I am more obsessed with than my two beautiful puppies.
Medical Aesthetician & Certified Laser Technician
I have called the skincare industry my home for over 15 years. Prior to joining the Skin Appeal family I worked as a Service and Education trainer for a UK based skin care company, which gave me the opportunity to travel throughout England, Scotland, and Ireland to deliver product and skincare knowledge to beauty consultants.
After moving back to my hometown of Tucson in 2019, I completed my Esthetics training at the Aveda Institute and was awarded valedictorian of my class. Passionate about offering and delivering the best results for my patients, I became certified as a Laser Technician in December of 2020. I completed my training at the nationally recognized leader in aesthetic laser education, the ClearSkin Institute in Phoenix. I believe combining treatments, as well as using medical grade skincare like Mikel Kristi is the key to ageless beauty.
In my free time, I enjoy hiking with my husband, Adam and pug-mix, Georgie. I am now a mother of an amazing baby boy and spend as much time cuddling and soaking in every moment I can with him.

Starting my career as an aesthetician, more than 17 years ago, I gained my experience working in salons and spas as well as working directly for prestige skincare brands. I spent many years as a professional makeup artist and later became a Certified Laser Technician. I am extremely passionate about the aesthetics industry and value the power of feeling and looking beautiful.

Patient Care Coordinator & Social Media Manager
I started my college career at the University of Arizona to pursue a degree in Chemical Engineering due to my love of math and science. Shortly after I began working at Skin Appeal, with a background in makeup artistry, I discovered and fell in love with the world of aesthetics. I love that it combines chemistry, technology, math, art, medicine, and more of my interests to empower people to feel their best. Working at Skin Appeal inspired me to return to school for a degree in nursing to become an injector. I love watching patients get filler while assisting our providers and seeing the art of how it’s injected as well as their results. I’m excited to be a student again while getting to apply what I’m learning in class to my current position as a Patient Care Coordinator.
Outside of work, I love going on spontaneous trips, I play soccer in a local league, I am a dog mom to a very smart and energetic puppy, and I am also an artist who loves to paint and enjoys any opportunity to get creative. You can find some of my work through our social media posts, and you can even find a mural in our office that I got the really exciting opportunity to paint here. I look forward to becoming a provider here and continuing to grow and learn with this team!

My goal is to make everyone that walks through the door feel comfortable and provide them with the best service and experience.
On my free time I enjoy weight lifting, hiking, and a good laugh. I’m a sucker for the best city views and love nothing more than being beach side. I can’t wait to meet you and make your experience impeccable here at Skin Appeal!

I love learning new things and helping people feel confident and comfortable in their own skin.
In my free time, I love spending time with my fiancé and our kids at sporting events, traveling, hiking around beautiful Tucson while geocaching, and barbequing poolside.
I am a Licensed Aesthetician here at Skin Appeal. I knew from an early age that I was passionate about skincare, and that love began at just 16 years old, when I started my career as a makeup artist. I quickly learned that my passion for science and skin would lead me to a career in the aesthetics industry. I am a skincare ingredient nerd and I take pride in the opportunity I have to educate patients on how to achieve their skin goals through proper treatments and product usage. I believe in results driven medical aesthetics and wellness, which is what drew me to Skin Appeal. I resonate with our mission at Skin Appeal; to help patients feel their most confident and to give patients the knowledge and tools as we make our way together in their skincare journey.
Outside of my love for aesthetics, I am a mom to four precious cats. I am the oldest of five, and my family means the world to me. I would be honored to talk with you about skincare and help you take the first step in your skin journey!
