About Nyki, Owner + Skin Therapist

Why did you choose Skin Therapy as a career?
My first introduction to esthetics was when my son was struggling with acne during his teen years. As a mother it was devastating to see your child’s self-worth suffer and I was willing to do whatever it took to help him clear it up. Unfortunately, even after a visit to both a dermatology office and an esthetician, he was left with temporary results.

What’s your favorite service?
Every opportunity I have to create a change in someone’s skin – acne, acne scarring, reverse signs of aging/pigmentation – and see how their eyes light up the moment they see change….that’s always my absolute favorite no matter what the service it is.

What would your clients be surprised to learn about you?
I love clearing acne so much, even from a young age I’ve been known to pin down friends who need extractions! Also, I was born in Las Vegas, NV and have always loved the sun. It was my sister who taught me how to care for my sun-loving skin, which has now morphed into a passionate & fulfilling career in advanced skin care!

About Amelia, Owner + Master Lash Artist

Why did you choose Lash Artistry as a career?
I’m a licensed Cosmetologist in Oklahoma, as well as Nevada and Texas and I love the idea of enhancing your natural beauty with results that are subtle, yet stunning. I create beautiful lashes that will significantly cut down your beauty regimen while making you look like the very best version of yourself.

What is your favorite service & why?
I don’t think I can choose! I’m both a Lash Artist specializing in the art of Volume and MegaVolume, as well as a Lash Extension Educator. I have a passion for my industry and an eye for detail, which makes me obsessive about perfection in my work. I am constantly updating my skill set and knowledge of my services by taking Advanced and Master training courses. I would love to see more of the standards being met and valued within our industry, because there really is so much to know and love about lashes, by both service provider and customer.

What would your clients be surprised to learn about you?
I was a cheerleading, horseback riding, hockey player in middle school. What’s the theme? I love working as a team!

About Ellie, Esthetician

Why did you get into this career?
I’ve always been interested in skin and how it works, I wanted to be an RN for as long as I can remember. To mix the two things I was interested in the most I decided to go to esthetic school and get my RN degree and continue my education in skin. Clear Skin Solutions has helped me further my education as well as pushed me to go further in what I want to achieve in the future.

What is your favorite service & why?
My favorite service is most definitely lash extensions. I love making people more confident in themselves, even if it is such a simple thing as making their eyes pop.

What would your clients be surprised to learn about you?
I go to the animal shelter in my free time, just to pet and play with the animals.

Why did you choose being a Physician’s Assistant as a career?
I have always had an interest in cosmetic/aesthetic medicine. Then, a few years ago I had the opportunity to work in the field. I found that I truly love it.

What’s your favorite service and why?
Dermal fillers, because there is an instant result and our clients walk out glowing from the treatment. But as a PA, I was surprised at how much I didn’t know and understand about skincare – what I was taught in PA school should not be the standard. Nyki has given me a whole new level of skin education. I love how passionate the Clear Skin Team are about what they do!

What is something clients would be surprised to know about you?
I am very crafty – I love to sew and quilt! I am also the handyman around my house and I live to building projects.

Kande Johnsen, LMT

Why did you choose being a Massage Therapist as a career?
I went into massage therapy after working as a medical assistant and phlebotomist for many years. But even though my past experience in the medical field gave me the understanding that science is essential in the process of healing, I also knew I wanted to incorporate more holistic modalities to allow clients to connect to a deeper mind, body, and spirit experience. My career as an LMT has allowed me bring my forth my medical knowledge and experience and combine it with a metaphysical comprehension for a complete and holistic approach.

What’s your favorite service and why?
My favorite service is Myofascial Release and Deep Tissue Massage. I enjoy being able to use therapeutic techniques to relieve pain. When the pain is gone, transformations happen!

What is something clients would be surprised to know about you?
I can’t cook! But I do make a mean Mac ‘N Cheese. I also enjoy going to muscle car shows – my first car was a ‘70 Nova! And just to balance out my wide-ranging interests, I love practicing the ancient Japanese healing modality, Reiki.
