Head of Marketing / Volunteer
I noticed that at photo shoots, models and actors have so much fun getting hair, makeup, and clothing styled for professional photographs. I would love to give chronically ill, terminally ill, LGBTQIA and disadvantaged youth that very same experience. There are many teens who would benefit from a day with a Glam Team. I feel that as a physician specializing in children; it is important to not only help to heal kids physically but emotionally and spiritually as well. Simply put, when you look good, you feel good! As their medical teams and/or care partners heal their bodies and environmental circumstances, The Haute Healing Foundation can heal their minds and spirits. I am proud of our organization and I look forward to expanding the Haute Healing Foundation family.
