I am a licensed esthetician and built a skincare line after transitioning from hands on esthetics work.

Why Wild?
From studying Eastern Medicine, Massage and Esthetics, to creating a skincare line that was formulated to encourage stability in your largest organ, my educational journey has always been health focused. Following that mindset, I became a Certified Personal Trainer with a goal of starting my own training business. When I met Tom and Tara, I experienced how healthy a relationship with fitness could be. They introduced me to a “gym” setting that offered an inclusive and comforting space. The Wild community builds you up and makes you feel welcome, regardless of what stage you’re at on your fitness journey. I feel fortunate to be immersed in an environment of trainers and clients that engage my thirst for knowledge everyday.
