After graduating from Philadelphia University with a Bachelor of Science degree, Anne Pettinati ran an art distribution business before moving it and herself to Austin, Texas. In her free time she decided to study Ayurveda, Hindu traditional medicine, as well as general health and wellness. Anne was struggling with acne and hadn’t found a single dermatological product to treat it effectively. While doing research on creating her own skin products, she realized she needed to acquire more information on the best ingredients for skin care. She moved to New York City and enrolled in the Dermalogica Academy for esthetics. During her training, she fell in love with the laser technology program, thrilled by the possibilities that laser treatments offered. Deciding to focus her studies on laser technology, she obtained her laser technician certification. She also worked in a Lasik center, where she prepared the lasers for surgery. Now, when not using her skills to dramatically transform skin, Anne devotes her time to her other great love: shooting hoops with her basketball team.
