    I’ve always had a passion for helping people. I started my career as a registered dental hygienist and practiced for almost 20 years in Canada with a very passionate dentist, where I was able to learn a lot about the holistic medical approach.

    After moving to Florida my path led me to become a licensed esthetician and to join my sister Dr. Nona Kalfayan in expanding the eye care practice, with our focus shifting more toward a holistic Eye Care approach.

    We believe that proper Skin Care should be at the base of any Eye Care routine.

    Both careers have given me a platform and ability to establish relationships and further educate my clients on how to achieve a healthy lifestyle that works for them.

    My ultimate goal and focus is to take a holistic approach to anti-aging skin care.

    Some of my favorite procedures include long-term collagen stimulators.

    I have an immense passion for helping my patients look and feel their absolute best, I enjoy every moment of my day!
