A Little About Us!
I started Derma Bright Clinic in 2012 after embarking on a journey of health and wellness that began in 2003, after the birth of my son. As part of this health journey and to improve my overall health, I was visiting a holistic doctor and had some basic tests done, including a heavy metals test. That test showed I had off-the-charts lead in my body! I was stunned! Where did it come from?
As I was doing research on lead poisoning I won a book from the David Suzuki Foundation entitled “Not Just a Pretty Face – The Ugly Side of the Beauty Industry” by Stacy Malkan of the EWG. This book pointed to cosmetics and beauty products containing harmful and unhealthy ingredients including lead in lipstick! This infuriated me! How could these companies create such toxic products??
Through a series of events soon thereafter I found myself in front of the esthetic devices we now use. They helped me with my melasma (brown spots on my face), a result of my pregnancy, getting rid of it without the need for any more treatments. Between these two events, I decided to create a skin care business that treats skin using the best non-invasive skin care technology while educating people around the responsible use of personal care, skincare and beauty products. Derma Bright Clinic is a result of this journey!
In 2016 I wrote “Face Your Acne”, available on Amazon, and we launched My Skin Salon where we educate about and sell clean skincare products. I am also known as the Queen of Living Clean, and use this as a platform to speak, write and hold workshops & retreats sharing with others how to “Clean Up Your Life!”
In 2015 our physician co-tenants moved and I decided to bring in other like-minded wellness practitioners under the guise of Holistica Wellness and offer other wellness services.
Over the last 7 years I have authored and collaborated on 5 books, all available on MySkinSalon.com. And in 2022 I launched SimplyDivineRetreats.com, where I host retreats in Canada and internationally. My first international retreat was in Koh Phangan Island, Thailand in February 2023.
I have contributed to my community through my (2017-2022) elected role as a School Trustee and Vice Chair with the Vancouver School Board. In June 2022 I was elected to the Board of the Beauty Council.
My passion is helping people live their best lives while feeling and looking great. Derma Bright Clinic is one way we do this, and we make great efforts to provide a caring, healing and healthy environment sharing our wisdom to help our clients achieve their best and brightest skin and overall improved wellbeing!
Love and light,
