She attended the top recognized laser aesthetic school in the country and graduated at the top of her class in Advanced Dermal Skincare, Advanced Clinical Skincare, and Cosmetic Laser Technologies.

Noelle has always had an interest in the medical field and worked as a Veterinary Surgical Assistant before she started her training for Microblading. She has an eye for perfection, and has always had a fascination with bold, precise brows (she grew up with biggest unibrow you’ve ever seen on a girl, so her brow shaping training started early). Microblading combines her passions for art, beauty, and science and she loves to be able to create perfect brows for people who were not as blessed in the brow department as she is.

When not working at the Lab, Noelle works as a singer with her band 10 Miles West. In the rare moments Noelle has to relax, you will probably find her snuggled up with her zoo of animals (3 cats, and Tom Brady the dog) watching NFL football, or Netflix!
