"Skin and its rejuvenating ability fascinated me since I was a little kid. At age 12, I knew I would be an esthetician. That is when a long journey started. I went through a very intensive program of scientific prep school, then got my Bachelors Degree in Chemistry from one of the prestigious Technical Universities in Russia. United States provided me with training in Human Anatomy and Physiology and work experience in the medical field.
My mother was a very passionate teacher of Biology and Geography. Over the years she explained and showed me how everything is interconnected, how our body simply is an extension of the earth, and just like a plant, it reacts to the environment, nutrition and external stimuli!
