Please meet your Aestheticians!
With over 10 years of skin care experience, Kat is sure to find the right treatment and care plan for you. She is a native of the Hampton Roads area and lives in Virginia Beach with her husband Derek Finn, who is also in the medical field as a Doctor of Physical Therapy with Sentara.
She discovered her love for skin care while working as a makeup tech and decided to take the next step. Kat enrolled at The Chrysm Institute of Esthetics in 2008, graduating with her Basic and Masters Esthetics licenses. Her professional esthetics career began at Massage Envy, to build experience in the field, and then moved on to American Laser Skin Care where she earned a more in-depth laser certification in several different types of lasers. Always having a great passion for the skincare industry, she obtained her Adult Learning Certificate and returned to the Chrysm Institute of Esthetics as an adjunct instructor, teaching and training aspiring Estheticians. Kat gained a tremendous amount of her experience in medical esthetics from working with three plastic surgeons at the Medi-spa for over 5 years.
Currently, Kat has extensive experience with a plethora of laser treatments including the Skin Classic high-frequency machine for electrodesiccation, and micro-needling with both electric pen and roller. She loves the diversity of working in an environment that offers all aspects of medical esthetics (light & deep chemical peels, dermaplaning, microdermabrasion, etc.), and the beauty industry (lash lifts, henna brows, facials etc.). Throughout the years, she has attended many product-specific training courses and has received certifications in multiple types of peels. She has committed herself to be a leader in the ever-growing skincare world.
Angie, a Virginia Beach native, found her calling in the skin care industry at age 23. As a licensed Master Aesthetician, she knows great skin is never achieved through a “one size fits all” solution, but rather through a personalized skin care plan tailored to an individual’s skin type. Angie provides clinical, results-oriented skin care to heal, repair, and restore your skin’s health and appearance. She treats all skin types safely and effectively, with experience that includes sensitized skin, adolescent and adult acne, aging skin, discoloration, uneven skin tone and texture, and ingrown hairs. She is also skilled in full body waxing, using proper techniques and no-strip hard wax that offers a comfortable and safe waxing experience.
Angie focuses on your individual needs and skin care goals, working one on one with you to help you achieve long-term skin health. In addition to helping you achieve the benefits of healthy skin, Angie’s goal is to help you feel comfortable and gain a renewed sense of confidence in your skin. She believes that true beauty begins within, but that healthy glowing skin starts here with professional skin therapy and smart at-home skin maintenance.
Outside of work Angie enjoys spending her free time outdoors, cooking with her big family, soaking up live music, and traveling up and down the east coast to visit family and friends.
“Kat is the best. Over the years I’ve seen at least 6 estheticians and none compare to Kat. She is professional, personable, knowledgeable (and) very efficient. Over the years I’ve done damage to my skin and through her facials and other treatments, my skin is so much better.”
“Angie is awesome and I have been going to her for facials whenever I can for the last few years. I moved up to northern Virginia and still only go to her for any kind of facials or acne treatments. She’s made my cystic acne clear up and continues to help me maintain healthier skin. Definitely pay her a visit!”
“I was out with a friend when she asked me what new foundation I was using. She told me the coverage was great and the color match was perfect. I laughed because the truth was that I didn’t have a stitch of makeup on! Kat has helped me get the best skin of my life. I hardly ever wear makeup anymore and I have skin I’m finally comfortable showing off and I couldn’t have done it without Kat and her expertise!”
“I have been working with Angie on improving my uneven skin tone and correcting hyperpigmentation since June of 2018. I have been getting the Sensi-Peel to lift dark marks left by old acne scars. With her guidance and expertise and the awesome PCA Skin products I use daily, I have seen a great change in the health and appearance of my skin and I fully recommend Angie.”
