Elizabeth found her passion for skincare around her eleventh birthday after receiving a skincare kit from her Greek Grandmother, a woman who set the bar high with her flawless olive skin and her beautiful complexion. Lilac & Dahlia is named in her honor. Now with over ten years in the beauty and wellness industry, practicing in Boston, MA and San Francisco, Elizabeth has decided to open her business in the beautiful town of Pacific Grove.
Elizabeth’s career began in Boston on the famous Newbury Street in a high end brownstone spa. As an almost California native (she spent her first five years in Paris and Boston), she quickly realized that Boston was too cold and found her way back to the bay area. Her experience in Boston lead her to In-Symmetry Wellness Spa, a newly relocated San Francisco small business that found quick success and needed a larger space to accommodate their clients. There she had the opportunity to build and create her treatment room and service menu. After nearly 3 years, her path lead her to Bliss Spa at the W Hotel. Her time at Bliss was incredibly inspiring and enabled her career to grow to new levels. At this point she had been practicing for nearly five years in San Francisco and had established a strong client base of men and women who followed her to La Tira Wax Studio in the family neighborhood of Noe Valley. There she was able to continue growing her talents in waxing as well as facial services to her long standing clients.
In early 2018 with a baby on the way, Elizabeth and her husband made the decision to slowly say goodbye to the Bay Area and move to Carmel Valley to live closer to her extended family. They look forward to raising their son in a peaceful setting, encouraging him to explore nature and the Monterey Bay.
Elizabeth strives to provide her clients with quality treatments, completely customized for effectiveness and results. Her approach to skincare is nature meets science, using versatile products for all skin types. Her passion for helping people comes through in her work, something she looks forward to offering at Lilac & Dahlia.
