Welcome to Skintuition, a modern + holistic skin and nail care retreat! I'm Tracy and my belief is that everyone should have the opportunity to take care of themselves. Skintuition Holistic Skincare was created to give you a private, spa experience as you take advantage of self-care safely.
My 17 year career began providing skin and laser treatments in prominent medical practices and medspas in Northern Virginia after attending the prestigious Yvonne de Vilar Scientific Skincare School. I returned to graduate in the first 600 hour master esthetics program in our area, although my medical experience would have allowed me to receive the master license without further education. Additionally, I have earned a postgraduate diploma from The International Dermal Institute, a Certificate in Natural Products Manufacturing from the American College of Healthcare Sciences, completed the Gut Health Specialist program with the Holistic Wellness Coaching Academy and an extensive certification course in Oncology Esthetics. Most recently, I completed Nail Technician, Advanced Nail Technician and Footcare Nail Technician training to offer exceptional nail services to everyone including those with auto immune disorders, cancer, pregnancy, and other health compromising concerns.
The desire to give all I can to others is endless... I'm very excited to have recently become 1 of the first 4 estheticians certified as a Holistic Skin Wellness Consultant in the United States and Canada. This training combines ancient and traditional Chinese medicine techniques specifically for estheticians to achieve balance and harmony in the body, therefore affecting the skin. As you can imagine, this training is vast and will continue until the day I retire. As I continue to learn more and more, all will be incorporated into my practice to benefit clients.
In addition to being an entrepreneur, I'm a former master esthetics instructor and continue to share my knowledge with fellow licensed estheticians. Although skincare is a huge part of my life, I'm a proud United States Air Force veteran and spent 20 years in audiovisual communications and education/training. My husband Stephen and I live a fulfilling life with our rescued cat family of 8 and enjoy spending time together at Virginia wineries near and far.
