Glowing skin, strong body, and peaceful mind.

My Mantra —  


Screen Shot 2020-12-06 at 8.23.19 PM.png

I’ve been a skincare specialist for over 30 years, first working as a freelance makeup artist throughout the Americas before opening my first skincare studio in Beverly Hills, California. It was there that I trained under Sebastien Lagree to master the methods and techniques of Pilates and through this experience, discovered that true beauty is a holistic practice.


Since then, I’ve opened multiple Pilates studios of my own in Northern California, developed an instructor training program, and launched a namesake luxury skincare line. My passion is in education and giving individuals the tools to grow their own careers in the beauty and wellness industries.


All along this journey, my path has been guided by a combination of gratitude and open-mindedness. I've had the pleasure of working with a wide spectrum of bodies, skin types, and personalities, each and every one of whom has brought their own unique beauty into this world. My services are designed to acknowledge that just as there are many different ways to arrive at a destination, there are many paths to achieve a desired result. Let me be your guide!

"I love Chris! Her knowledge and expertise in skin care is so valuable to me. I am a picky customer because I have sensitive skin and I’m prone to breaking out if I don’t take care of it. She never disappoints! She’s always ready to answer all your skin care questions and she genuinely cares about your facial needs and overall health."


"I have worked with Chris at Face + Body since she first opened in 2008. Chris and her Pilates have been a constant and wonderful part of my ongoing health routines. I credit her with helping me build my strength, flexibility, stamina and 'always learn something new' philosophy of life. She's a breath of fresh air and helps everyone maximize their potential."


"I use the Moonglow face oil everyday before makeup and my skin literally glows. In a pinch I’ll also use it to remove dark eye makeup. It feels great on and there is no noticeable odor or residue."
