Advanced clinical nurse specialist Barbara Kaylor has spent her three decades in the nursing industry in intensive care, neurologic departments, hospice environments, and more. She even served as the Chief Nursing Officer at a hospital, which means she'd drive the building whenever it transformed into a tank. But at Ageless Lifestyle Aesthetics, Barbara turns her clinical skill set toward an area she's especially passionate about: cosmetics. Because she's a clinician with advanced certifications, Barbara can use systems that are off-limits to many aestheticians. She approaches advanced techniques including injectables, laser and light therapy, and ultrasound skin-tightening from the standpoint of a medical professional, always taking the time to educate clients about each therapy's relationship to their overall health.

Zakk specializes in workman's compensation and auto injury claims, a rare commodity in Eugene.
