Sierra received her Medical Assistant (MA) certification from Pima Medical Institute in 2015. While she enjoyed medical assisting, she knew early in her career that she wanted to further her education with a focus on health care management and leadership. Upon completion of the medical assisting program, she entered the Health Care Administration program, where she graduated with her Bachelor’s Degree (BSHCA) in 2018.
While pursuing her degree she accepted a position as an Aesthetics Medical Coordinator. Over the course of 2.5 years, Sierra gained experience in office management as well as back and front office procedures. She developed a deep understanding of medical aesthetics and medical-grade skincare which quickly became her passion. This knowledge, coupled with her previous experience in marketing and customer service, makes her a wonderful addition to the Facial Artistry team.
In her free time, Sierra enjoys spending time with family, hiking, gardening, and cooking. She hopes to further her education by earning her Master’s Degree in Business or Healthcare Management.
Amanda is a proud Tucsonan! She always knew her passion was in makeup and skincare. After completing high school, she attended the Empire Beauty School where she graduated in 2007 with her license in cosmetology. Amanda continued her growth in the industry working as a regional artist for Yves Saint Laurent and Giorgio Armani. With well over a decade of experience, she subsequently was employed by a large dermatology/aesthetics office as the front desk administrator. In this position, her skills dealing with patients learning about their lives and participating in their care led her to an even greater understanding of self-esteem and human emotions.
She has been published as an exceptionally talented makeup artist in Dark Beauty Magazine and has won numerous National makeup competitions.
Amanda is newly married and has two cats, Mya and Jazmine. She enjoys competing in mud races such as Spartan and Tough Mudder. Most mornings you’ll find her on the Peloton or attending a circuit training class (after her coffee of course!) and in the evenings attending boxing classes. She loves the outdoors whether it be hiking, traveling, or enjoying the beauty of nature.
She is extremely excited to be a part of the Facial Artistry and Aesthetics team and intends to continue sharing her experiences and creating new experiences for our patients.
