I started using tanning beds when I was just fourteen years old. Specials events, just because... because I wanted to be tan! Everyone looks better tan, right? I spent countless sessions in tanning beds for Homecoming, Prom and also throughout my college years. I never thought I would be the one that gets skin cancer.

In 2012, my father was diagnosed with skin cancer. It was on his face, near his right eye. It was deep. The specialists thought they might have to remove his eye in order to properly treat and remove the cancer. After the surgeries and treatments, he did not lose his eye. Praise God! As of May 2013, my father was cancer-free. After his diagnosis, I vowed to give up tanning beds forever. From that vow, Emberglow was created. I lost my dad in 2022 to Alzheimer's and Parkinson's. I work to honor him now.


It's my passion and pursuit to help my clients feel confident and beautiful. I want you to get glowing the healthy way! I have been trained by the industry's top professionals and continue to educate myself on new products, techniques and treatments. I am proud to offer a custom spray tan service that is created to fit your skin tone and preferences. I take great pride in providing a comfortable environment and love to educate my clients on ways to enhance their spray tans. The formulas I offer are the best quality, longest lasting and contain only naturally-based ingredients. After the birth of my children, natural and organic skincare products have become more important to me. I want to feel good about what I'm putting on your skin!
