Everyone who knows me knows that I’m all about pro-healthy aging aka “anti-aging.” It comes naturally and honestly. It’s my way of life and I practice it in my life style every day. So it’s no accident I’m in a business that evolved organically from my love of exercise, diet, fashion, skin care, and hobbies!

Note from Maxine: Private parties and appointments can be scheduled. Give me a call.
