Evette is a first-generation Guatemalan-American born and raised in Chicago. She graduated from Denison University in 2018 with a bachelor's degree in Sociology/Anthropology. After working in Education for a bit, she realized her true calling was medical aesthetics. Growing up, she always dealt with acne and hyperpigmentation but did not have the proper knowledge or tools to help her achieve her skin goals. This motivated her to further her education and learn about skin care treatments and product knowledge so that she can not only empower herself but others around her who may be struggling with the same skin concerns. In 2019, she attended the University of Aesthetics & Cosmetology in Wicker Park. Evette understands skincare is not a one-size fits all solution, through customized treatment plans and skincare products, she hopes to help her patients achieve their skin goals. Evette will be able to assist Spanish speaking clients, as well.
