Back in 2007 when I went solo, I had a vision to create exceptional quality skincare spa providing the best service possible through genuine care, knowledge and state of the art skincare equipment.
This is when Unique Verve was born. Quality over quantity always has been and always will be most important to me!
As a result, through word of mouth and because of my outmost commitment to my profession and the clients, my practice has been growing ever since.
In 2016 I developed debilitating health problems that back then seemed to appear from nowhere. What started out as hair loss, fatigue, trouble sleeping, then morphed into anxiety, insomnia, heart palpitations, hot flashes. And even memory loss.
I was desperate for answers and solutions. When I saw several physicians, this is the point when I was expecting to get guidance for recovering my health. Instead the only solution that I received was anti-depressants. For a person who has never taken any medications, it was not acceptable answer.
I felt defeated and frustrated. Intellectually with every cell in my body I knew that there must be logical, physiological reasons for my health problems. This is when I decided to take healing into my own hands. Which lead me to the path of intense learning of Functional Medicine science. After completing a rigorous 2 year advanced educational program, I have become a certified Functional Medicine practitioner.
It is my passion to help others and share a hope that it is possible to heal the body and feel healthy and vibrant again!
I utilize functional medicine science to optimize body’s function from the inside out while providing a personalized wellness approach. By addressing the root causes of a problem I help clients put their skin and health problems into remission without the use of drugs.
I am a Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner. I’ve received a rigorous training at The School of Applied Functional Medicine which is an Accredited Continuing Medical Education (CME) Provider.
