Hi guys! I am extremely passionate about all things iLashNY and am thrilled to have been given the opportunity to use my gifts to educate and beautify women every day. My personality boarders on obsessive and ensures that I pay very close attention to detail and guarantees that the entire iLashNY team does the same. I love our team of highly-skilled women and I know you will too. I look forward to growing our studio’s presence throughout Buffalo and Western New York’s beauty industry.

When I’m not working, I love spending time with my handsome husband, Jon, and our amazing little girl, Giavanna, whom we are so excited to raise in a world full of strong, beautiful women.

Thank you so much for checking out iLashNY!

NYS Licensed Esthetician / Borboleta Certified Lash Artist

Hola! After moving back to Western New York in 2013, I decided to attend school and pursue a career in esthetics.  I quickly fell in love with lashing and knew it was where I wanted to focus my energy.  I am thrilled to be a part of the iLashNY family and to bring my talents to the studio.  

I am one of seven children (the only girl!) and my family is my world.  I have 2 adopted cats and if you add me on Snapchat you’ll get to know them pretty well too.

If I haven’t met you already, I can’t wait to get to know you and your lashes … and maybe even your brows!

Hello Everyone,

I’m so excited to share my passion for lashes and the beauty industry with you! Not everyone gets to have a career that doesn’t feel like work and empowers women.  I feel so fortunate to be a part of what iLashNY is doing and has to offer and I look forward to getting to know each and every one of you if you’ll let me.

In my free time I love to spend time with my huge family, enjoy the outdoors and read!

Operations Assistant

Hi Everyone!

I’m Sara (with no “H”) and I am one of the Operations Assistants here at iLNY! I absolutely love my job and the amazing ladies I get to work with everyday. In my free time I love to read and research astrology. Family is extremely important to me and I’m all about some quality time with my best friends. Music is a big part of my life and anytime you hear a country song during your appointment, I probably am the one who added it to the playlist!

Can’t wait to see you at your next appointment!
