Owner and President
After several years in the medical field as a Licensed Radiologic Technologist Deborah changed course and began a twenty plus year career in couture fashion, sales and management. After completing the management training program at Marshall Fields in Chicago she went on to further her experience in sales and management at Saks Fifth Avenue, Jaeger, and Vidal Sassoon. She has developed a keen aesthetic eye, and brings her management experience to Lincoln Park Aesthetics as the supervising Owner.
Her goal is to bring a state of the art aesthetic facility to Lincoln Park in Chicago. It is no secret that most of us would like to age as gracefully as possible. I believe there should be a facility like Lincoln Park Aesthetics that provides sound services and information in a non-pretentious atmosphere. The days of aesthetic services being exclusively for the elite and celebrities are in the past. Today, the pursuit of excellence in beauty and anti-aging is for everyone.
