Kathleen has had a passion for skincare ever since she convinced her mom to buy the Clinique three step routine from the Macy’s counter when she was 15. Six years ago she decided to take a leap of faith, leave her corporate job in AdTech and pursue her passion becoming a licensed Esthetician. She attended Atelier Esthetique Institute of Esthetics in NYC and has continued her education with advanced classes in treating sensitive, acne prone and aging skin at the International Dermal Institute.
Before joining Alivio Wellness Kathleen worked at several spas in NYC and was the lead Esthetician and head of business development at HelloAva, a beauty tech startup that uses AI and human expertise to curate personalized skincare routines. During her tenure she worked with over 30 brands including Herbivore, Indie Lee, Dr. Barbara Sturm, Murad and Osea.
Kathleen specializes in ingredient and product knowledge as well as facial massage. “Building a trusted relationship with my clients, delivering a relaxing and results driven facial along with educating clients on how to properly care for their unique skin type is so emotionally rewarding, there’s nothing else I’d rather be doing at this point in my life.”
