Katie Westgate – Founder/Esthetician
Weaving ancient and modern skin regeneration techniques, yogic lifestyle tips, and a passion for nutrition is how Katie Westgate, founder and lead esthetician at K.WEST approaches the healing journey each client begins when they walk in the door.
Healing the skin begins at the surface and is a catalyst for healing that extends through the body, mind and soul.
