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!
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!

Janell joined our team in September, 2016 but has been in the aesthetic field for 17 years. As a California Licensed Esthetician, she considers it a blessing and a privilege to have found a career that not only helps people achieve healthy skin but a career that helps people feel good about themselves! She realizes that the outward appearance of the skin with hyperpigmentation, acne, blemishes and other maladies seriously affects not only one’s confidence but also their self-esteem.As our product specialist and consultant, Janell loves to educate patients on the art of skin care utilizing medical-grade products finishing off with Jane Iredale make-up to make you look and feel your best! She has taken to heart years ago that ”people don’t care how much you know… until they know how much you care!” She is always looking to make that difference! When she is not at Destination Aesthetics you could find her golfing, on the American River bike trail, or spending time with her family.
