Before becoming a Skin Therapist, Yannis was working her way through med school. She knew she wanted to find a way to care for those around her – she thought she'd be a dermatologist or a psychologist. I guess you'd say she's now a little bit of both! She loves being able to speak with each client, and working with them day-to-day inspires her to continue honing her technique and learning new ingredients, tools, and products. A mother of one (soon to be two!), she is a natural nurturer and loves to ease clients into trying new things.

I remain positive in everything that I do.

What clients are saying

Yannis was awesome!!! I just love Heyday. Never a less than perfect experience.

What a great visit. Thank you for a wonderful start to my day.

Yannis was very gentle and relaxing.

Best Advice

Moisturizing is so important because when you don't use a moisturizer, your skin can become more dehydrated and then you present dryer or more oily. You're also more prone to wrinkles and premature aging.

Fun Fact

I used to belly dance.

Dream Client

Kim Kardashian because I want to know what she does every day!



Favorite Product

I like this sunscreen because it's matte, so it's good for under makeup. You can wear it anytime, any day, any time of the year. It looks good and protects you.
