When Evelyn opened her practice in 2010, she had a vision of creating a holistic approach to skin care that mirrored the holistic way she was living her own life. She wanted to provide her clients with a breadth of knowledge that would take them beneath the surface of skin care and dig deeper into her clients’ overall well being. Her goal was to have her clients looking better, but more importantly, feeling better both inside and out.
Evelyn’s unique approach to skin care looks at how all aspects of life manifest in the body’s largest organ—the skin. Her holistic philosophy takes her clients full circle, considering how their relationships, work, exercise, and spirituality are all essential building blocks to good health and balance in every area of their lives. Her practice has evolved from traditional skin treatments and therapy, to one-on-one, personalized health coaching sessions that provide ongoing guidance to her clients. Together, they set goals to make sustainable changes that have her clients looking and feeling their best. After earning her degree in Psychology from Towson University (2001), Evelyn pursued her passion in skin care at the Von Lee International School of Esthetics, where she studied Scientific Skin Care (2004). Born and raised in the Baltimore/Washington Metropolitan Area, she later packed her bags and continued her studies at the prestigious Catherine Hinds Institute of Esthetics (2006) in Massachusetts, where she became a medical esthetician. There, she further educated herself on the latest and most innovative techniques, products and research in skin care, soon becoming the first G.M. Collin Master Aesthetician in her area. In 2012, Evelyn received her certification in health coaching from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, and became a Board Certified Holistic Health Practitioner in 2013. Evelyn has also earned her Certificate in Hormone Health, giving her a deeper understanding of the various types of hormone imbalances, the factors that can influence them, and dietary and lifestyle choices that may promote optimal health. Today, she continues to study the latest advancements in skincare at the Dermal Institute.
In the November 2009 City Search polling for the “Best in Baltimore”, Evelyn (under Brocatos Studio of Hair Design) was cited as “Baltimore’s Best” for skin care, facials, waxing, and Brazilian waxing. After years of experience in salons, day spas and even resort spas, she opened the Skin Therapy Center in 2010 to provide her clients with an even broader spectrum of personalized services and products. In 2014, under Evelyn’s ownership, the Skin Therapy Center was voted “Best Day Spa” by Howard Magazine readers. Evelyn continues to support her clients in the best way possible to achieve their skin and overall health and self-care goals.
