My Bio:

I am a primary care optometrist who specializes in pediatrics for Midwest Eye Associates in St. Charles. I provide glasses and contact lenses for patients of all ages and also diagnose and manage ocular disease such as dry eye, glaucoma, macular degeneration and cataracts. By specializing in pediatric eye care, I am able to provide comprehensive eye exams for children as young as 6 months old and have extensive training in diagnosing and treating binocular vision and learning-related vision disorders, which may have a negative impact on the way kids learn in school. In addition to seeing patients, I am adjunct faculty for the University of Missouri-St. Louis College of Optometry, where I take optometry students to provide vision screenings to local schools in the St. Louis area.

When I’m not in the office, you will find me working with my Beautycounter business. I love being able to provide people with safer skincare, cosmetics and personal care products! Our products are high performing and do not contain 1500 potentially harmful ingredients commonly found in beauty products that are known causes of several of health care problems.

I wish to be a member of LBB because:

Helping women feel beautiful and amazing is the base of my business model.

My Bio:

My mission is to capture images in a way that every time you look at them, your inner voice whispers “Yeah, that’s me and I am beautiful!”. It is far too easy to think of things we don’t like about ourselves, I want to remind you of all the things you love about yourself. Often we have a smile that our friends and family recognize and love, and we have a different smile for when someone pulls out a camera and our inner voice says “What do I do with my face?”, the split second is over and we’re stuck with whatever our face did at that moment. I like to think there is a lot more to what I do than pushing a shutter button and that is what I love about it! Every time I see someone relax in front of my camera and I catch those pictures, I feel honored. I invite you to a photo session with me. Let me take care of making you look your best.

I have always been interested in photography, but I bought a decent camera to take pictures of my child playing soccer. I quickly became addicted to learning everything I could about it. I settled into a combination of my favorite things about it. I started my business in Springfield, MO and moved it to O’fallon, along with my family. I use it to connect with people and to empower them, that’s why I love being a portrait photographer. I would photograph you every season of your life to celebrate your legacy, and show you how the people who love you see you.

Would you be interested in providing a member only discount?
