Skin & Laser Specialist
For as long as I can remember I have always had a passion for the Skincare and Aesthetic industry. Looking through childhood memories; I was around 5 when my older cousin complained about back pains. Little as I was, I could climb onto his back then gently proceed to either walk or massage his muscle tension away. I subsequently found myself doing mini Mani’s, Pedi’s and several home remedy facials by the time I was 12.
My family loved having a little skin and body inspector around to pamper, educate, and consistently practise new techniques on them. Being so young, I had yet to discover the wonder of laser treatments. Despite not being exposed to the real aesthetic industry, as I got older my growing passion for aesthetics led me to do research and read books on the topic.
While completing my International Degree, I worked at various clinics to build as much experience and additional knowledge as possible. With what time I had left, I ran my own mobile salon, which successfully grew at a steady rate. Once I had completed my International Degree in Somatology in 2011, I specialized in Aesthetic and Laser treatments. This redirected my passion, as I fell in-love with Laser and the amazing technology available.
My career began in Sandton, Johannesburg. Here I played a pivotal role in transforming the branch to be one of the busiest they had. After a year in Sandton city, I helped open, start, and build the new branch in Illovo. I am very pleased to have recently discovered that this branch is still one of the top branches within the company. My clients have always been satisfied and our journey together is always memorable.
I have been privileged to work closely with Doctors and Dermatologists throughout my career and have had the blessing to provide training for other Aesthetic Somatologists as well as Medical Practitioners within the industry.
In July 2015 my fiancé, Jordan, and I moved to Cape Town where I have grown to know a different climate, new machines and amazing people. I have worked with a large variety of lasers and machines, and as many Clinicians would agree; there are always certain treatments that will stand out more than others. I am very passionate about all the latest technology and strive to keep up to date as much as possible. Over the years of being a Clinician, I have found a love for Carboxy and Laser Treatments, and a belief that a combination of different treatments and products are always the key to quickly achieve optimal results.
It has always been my dream to specialize, and at Atlantic Dermatology and Laser we specialize in all skin and body treatments. We work alongside Dermatologists as well as Aesthetic Doctors, with a passion for every patient’s individuality, and a drive to approach to each of their concerns with the best possible results in mind.

Having experience with various types of lasers, I’ve found that the Sciton® Joule™ Laser has become my favourite. This flagship system is built to provide the highest performance and quality, with in depth clinical studies and research to guarantee optimal results. We could perform a variety of cosmetic procedures with minimal to no invasiveness, that would be specific to each clients’ concerns and skin condition.
I believe that every client is important. Your concerns will always be heard and acknowledged. My goal as a clinician is to make each individual comfortable in their own skin. It is my passion to assist everyone I can, and more so to ensure that when I send a patient back out to conquer the world, they do so with the confidence in themselves to make it possible.
“Do not wish to be anything but what you are and try to be that perfectly.”

My advice – Your skin is with you for life, your shoes are with you for a season, so ensure you invest wisely.
