My inner voice kept urging me to play the music that my heart heard… And so I pursued my desire to help other people feel beautiful! I went to Medical School and the Esthetic Institute instead the conservatory. Neither my clients nor I have ever regretted my decision.”

“A year ago I was visiting my family in Ukraine and I spent some time with my favorite aunt, who offered me kind words of praise. She said no one in our family had achieved business success like I had. “You are our Golden Nugget,” she said. Her pride resonated deeply, as she had been my first mentor when I began my profession in the beauty industry. I am very thankful to my aunt Tatyana, my dearest daughters Dariya and Sofiya, and my sweet mother Lyudmila, for their unconditional love, continuing support, encouragement in my endeavors to which I attribute my success.”
