I'm so glad that you are here! Thank you so much for being part of the Buffalo Gal community. While I’ve had the privilege to meet many of you through the boutique, services or what I call the gypsy road show, I wanted to introduce myself as the Founder & CEO of Buffalo Gal Skincare to those of you I haven’t yet met. I’ll start by sharing why I left my promising career as a Medicinal Research Chemist to launch Buffalo Gal.
It all started with a little girl and some pretty red hands....
In 2010, my younger daughter was having an awful reaction to hand sanitizer that her daycare was using. My heart would just break when she would have tears in her eyes because her hands were sore. I knew that there had to be a solution that could help and I feel like we tried everything, but nothing seemed to work. Maybe I could make her something, I'm a chemist after all... and with that my research into lotions and creams began. In creating my first lotion to help her chapped hands get better I found my purpose.
That sublime moment of mixing that lotion in my kitchen and knowing that I was "home again", but this time it wouldn't be in a laboratory mixing toxic chemicals. Instead, I would be working with natural compounds and ingredients that I could make into something that would be good for us. From that moment, I started on a path of personal wellness and discovery, becoming a Certified Holistic Health Coach, Reiki Master and Crystal Healer. Each learning became a facet in the jewel that has become the life I have always dreamed of... to be of service to others, to help them gain the knowledge of alternative therapies and how nature combined with science has the answers to optimal health. I am forever grateful that I have had the opportunity to share my gifts with you and the world.
No matter how much we grow, I will never lose sight that I created Buffalo Gal Skincare for you and everyone that is looking for clean beauty alternatives, Self care and taking care of ourselves has been hard this year! Life has handed us different priorities and circumstances beyond our control. I understand that trying something new isn’t always easy, so let me ask you, what questions do you have for me? How can I help support you in your skincare journey to prioritize you, your needs, and your desires?
I've helped numerous clients fight the acne battle, turn dull dry skin into a glowing complexion and have worked with skincare professionals such as dermatologists, allergists and estheticians to help people achieve skin health. I also create toxin free cosmetics that are good for your skin and don't undo the good work you've already done getting your skin into optimum health.
If there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s that when we show up for ourselves, we show up better for our loved ones, our colleagues, our communities, and our world. It’s never too late to get started on your own personalized routine, and I am here to help in every step of the way.
Beauty begins with daily self care. Let me help you take the first step.
