With a career in the beauty industry spanning almost 30 years, Valerie has been a skin and beauty enthusiast since childhood, getting into her mother’s cosmetic bag as a toddler, and giving “facials” to neighbors for 10 cents as a youngster.
Working as a makeup artist, beauty advisor and manager for Estee Lauder and Lancome, as well as being the cosmetics manager for Victoria’s Secret Beauty, Val gained unique insight into the workings of retail cosmetics and skin care sales. Being tired of the corporate sales pressure, lack of focus on real customer care, and being made to sell pricey products with mediocre ingredients, Valerie became a licensed Esthetician, graduating from the respected Catherine Hinds Institute Medical Esthetics Program.
With her passion and desire to truly be of service and get results for her clients, Val quickly developed a following, starting as an esthetician in Massachusetts and moving her practice to New Hampshire.
As a Certified Acne Specialist, Val has transformed lives and given her clients the hope, confidence, and freedom to focus on life and not on their faces. The debilitating effects that acne can have on a person’s psyche is something Valerie understands and is compassionate as well as empowering with her clients. She delivers a combination of direct and firm guidance, along with humor and empathy, as a no-nonsense approach is the best way to reach skin goals in the most expedient way.
As a highly in demand skin therapist, Valerie has a strong and loyal clientele that keeps her busy with word of mouth referrals and is typically booked 4-6 months in advance. Her appointment book is not accepting new clients at this time.
Being in her 50’s, Val understands firsthand the concerns and challenges that mature women and men experience as their skin changes with age. She offers a wide array of treatments, and continues to educate herself on the latest advances in skin care technology and products to deliver exceptional results for her clients.
Valerie holds several certifications in her field including Oncology Esthetics . Val has been a Reiki Master of Usui Reiki for 16 years and is also a National Guild Certified Hypnotherapist.
