Oncology Skin Care with Katie
Hello, my name is Katie Baker and I am an esthetician here at Serenity Salon and Day Spa. I have been working here for a little over six years. Last year, in 2015, I became a certified Dermalogica Expert at the International Dermal Institute. Shortly after that, I decided I wanted to become oncology trained in esthetics as well. In this field, we encounter so many people and, since cancer is unfortunately everywhere, we see clients all the time that have been affected at one point or another. In May of this year, I took the rigorous training program and now here I am! Besides seeing clients who have been treated for this terrible illness, I have also had my personal experiences. My grandfather died of cancer and my father is a cancer survivor. Many of my friends have lost loved ones to cancer or have seen them win the battle, but deal with the life long effects. These experiences are what influenced me to become oncology certified. Skin care can make you feel so much better on the outside, but the power of touch can heal you from the inside out. I wanted to be able to give that gift to people going through treatment and after, during recent recovery and long term survivorship. If you have any questions, please come and see me and stay tuned for my next blog on skincare in the various stages of treatment.
