About Us


Julie has been working her magic for over 25 years. Her passion is research, ensuring the studio is always offering the latest and greatest the industry has to offer. Julie has built a fierce group of clients because of her results-orientated approach, mixed with her sassy spirit. She is the one with the crazy ideas and the one always pushing the studio in new directions. She opened Julie Halverson Skin Studio in 2009 and has loved evolving the business over time. 


Katie has been in the skin field for over 15 years, and with Julie since the beginning. With her love of hands on treatments, she gives Julie the flexibility to balance her time between clients and owner duties. Katie knows the ins and outs of skin, and determining the specific needs of each client is her passion. Her ability to connect with clients and work with them to reach their skin goals is second to none.


Sara is our newest addition to the team, joining us in 2021. A registered nurse, she brings a broad medical knowledge, including nine years of experience in dematologic and cosmetic procedures. Sara has a passion for serving others and this is evident in her up-beat demeanor! An organizational guru and multi-tasker, she's the one keeping Julie's brain organized and the studio on task.
