Shawna Chrisman



Acute Care Nurse Practitioner and Co-Owner

Thank you for your interest in Destination Aesthetics! I have been working in healthcare for over 20 years, primarily in critical care medicine. I received a Masters in Nursing from the University of California, San Francisco and have worked as a nurse practitioner since 2002. I entered the field of aesthetics for one simple reason – making people feel beautiful rewards me with the utmost professional satisfaction!

My philosophy on aesthetics is to restore a natural look, to slow the normal process of aging, and enhance a person’s true beauty. We are outcome-driven and strive to prove to people that their investment with Destination Aesthetics will deliver. All new services, products, and technology we incorporate is demoed and researched to ensure results versus bringing on the latest fad. We are customer-focused with you as our priority, today and for years to come!

Outside of Destination Aesthetics, I enjoy traveling, eating good food, napping, and spending time with family and friends. My favorite interest, however, is being a wife and a mother of two children! My husband and I were high school sweethearts from El Camino High School and have been together for 25 years. I am proud to practice locally in the amazing city of Sacramento! I hope to meet you!

Amber Sessions

Registered Nurse


I am a full-time ER nurse, and have been working in aesthetics for over six years now. I love all aspects of being a nurse, from critical traumas to the finesse of cosmetic injectables. At Destination Aesthetics, I specialize in cosmetic injectables, laser and microneedling. When I am not working in the ER or at DA, I am with my incredible husband and family. I believe in living a healthy lifestyle, and that life is meant to be lived fully and respectfully.

Rachel Keeney

Medical Assistant, Esthetician


I have always had an interest in the beauty industry and I love how special I can make someone feel after pampering them and showing what a difference consistent skin care treatments with medical grade product use can do for them. I graduated Esthetics school in 2010 and after working in the industry for four years I decided I wanted to get more in depth with the medical aspect of skin and achieved my degree in Medical Assisting.

My interests consist of spending quality time with my family and traveling as often as possible in the process.

I am so thankful and excited to be a part of our team here at Destination Aesthetics and to be able to share my touch and knowledge with everyone to see the maximum results our beautiful guests can have with their skin!

Deirdre Greenholz

Lead Administrative Assistant


After meeting and using Shawna for various services, my interest in the industry and Destination Aesthetics was peaked. I am honored to be a part of this dynamic group of women, and am grateful for all of the beautiful experiences my job has provided. If you don’t see me at DA you will likely find me running, hiking or biking with my husband or with one of our many pets!

Betsy A. Schuh

Practice Manager, Esthetician


I am so blessed to be a part of the Destination Aesthetics team where I am able to contribute in various ways. I have never loved a job or group of girls more! When I am not working, I am enjoying life with my sweet husband. We love golfing, flying, Maui, and checking things off of our bucket list. Thankful for the gift of life! Embracing every second of it!

Lauren Miller



After graduating from San Diego State University, I moved to Los Angeles to work in marketing at Paramount Pictures and later, for Disney. After 8 years in the corporate world and a lot of soul searching, I realized my true passion was in health and skin care, where I could work one-on-one with clients to help them achieve confidence through their appearance. I went back to school to become an esthetician, and went on to work at a high-end spa in Southern California.After relocating to Sacramento where I was born and raised, I jumped at the opportunity to work for Destination Aesthetics and I’m honored to be a part of such an amazing team. I believe achieving skin health is a team effort between the esthetician and client and I’m committed to ensuring the client leaves feeling valued.When I’m not working, I’m currently studying to become a Certified Health Coach to compliment my aesthetics practice. My biggest joys in life are spending time with my husband and son, eating yummy food and staying fit!
