Born and raised in Southern California, Bekah has taken an active interest in beauty her whole life. Prior to her career as an Aesthetician, she worked as a freelance makeup artist for 5 years.

Bekah currently sees patients for silk peels, oxygen facials, chemical peels and a variety of other facials.
