Our Team Lead



Julianne’s dedication to delivering safe and effective medical esthetic treatments is the essence of Thrive Skin and Laser Institute. As a medical esthetics consultant and educator, Julianne understands progressive treatments involving lasers and intense pharmaceutical innovations can be very intimidating to the client as well as the esthetician. With this consideration, Julianne strives to provide supportive classroom and clinical learning environments; enabling students to dismiss apprehension and acquire the skills necessary to provide advanced services with confidence and caution.  Julianne has over a decade of management experience, including coordinating continuing education and progressive training opportunities for physicians, nurses and estheticians in a variety of clinical settings.  In addition to her passion for teaching, Julianne takes pleasure in playing golf and attending live theater and music events.
