What is the most rewarding part about your job?
We proudly manufacturer each piece by hand in New York City using artisanal techniques. I love working with clients directly and seeing the emotional reaction to the perfect hat.
What inspires you?
The strong women in my family.
You're a busy woman! What does your self care look like?
I will fit in a weekly pilates or yoga class to unwind or take a long walk with my Wheaten Terrier, Bo. I try to keep my system in check with probiotics, Maca and Chaga Root. As for my daily skin care routine, I use a simple moisturizer and splurge on eye cream.
What are your aesthetic/skincare goals and how have you achieved them?
To curb inflammation and breakouts is the ultimate goal. Medical grade facials, ample moisurization and diet that limits sugar and diary have helped so much.
Tell us about your first time at JECT
Gabby and I met through a mutual friend. She immediately captivated me with her warm personality and honesty, so there was a trust present that guided me into getting injectables knowing I would still look natural. She also placed me on a peel routine that transformed my hormonal breakouts.
