Laurie believes that beauty starts from within.
“I had a sense of who ate a healthy diet, exercised & kept hydrated by the look of a person’s skin. They usually needed less foundation and concealer, since their skin texture was smoother and well hydrated. I was able to enhance their beauty without much makeup, and I institutionally knew that nutrition is key, and wanted to have a more comprehensive understanding of how the body works on a physiological level from the inside out.”
This led her down the path to nutrition where she earned a degree as a Clinical Nutrition, and did a Masters/Internship program at a NYC Hospital. This program is affiliated with The American Dietetic Association. Laurie graduated in 1993 as a Clinical Dietitian. She is also a certified in Para-Medical Skincare, a licensed Permanent Makeup Artist and a Licensed Certified Weight Management & Lifestyle Coach.

“People aspire to feel and look better, and it appears that today there is so much misleading information on all of these topics that many people get confused, overwhelmed, and perhaps waste money on unnecessary products, and procedures. Do your research, ask questions, a lot of people want to improve their physical appearance, it basically helps people feel better about themselves. Think about what it is that you would like to change? Chances are, if you start on the inside, you will be clearer on what you would like to change physically. Talk to someone knowledgeable that also has the required credentials. Focus on the desired results. When we understand what it is we need, our self esteem improves, not just superficially, but internally as well as externally.”
