“I truly love connecting with people and helping them recognize and appreciate their own beauty. Getting to know people beyond surface level is my favorite thing. People inspire me to be a better person, to be creative, to enjoy life. I love learning from my clients and hearing their stories and life experiences. Making people feel good about themselves is what I live for! Being able to tap into my creativity and share it every day is the greatest gift.” – Alexis Kuykendall
