Rytualist started with a passion for skincare. We strongly believe anti-aging skincare treatments can and should look natural! Our mission is to bring greater accessibility to these treatments that truly prevent key contributors of aging AND supporting our local community in the meantime. We recognize prevention and personalization as essential aspects of effective skincare, and embrace the “less-is-more” philosophy with our innovative micro treatment services. Through community, convenience and comfortability, our team at Rytualist are reinventing the idea of cosmetic injectables by taking them out of the traditional medical environment and making it easier than ever to seamlessly integrate into your self-care rytual.
As a nurse practitioner in family practice, Ashley’s role has evolved over the past 5 years from working in a traditional hospital-based practice, to becoming an independent business owner, forging her way into the world of direct primary care. Her passion for health and wellness led her to pursue parallel interests such as yoga instruction and regenerative medicine. Ashley has been Rytualist’s Medical Director for 2 years and holds certifications in Aesthetic Medical Directorship and neurotoxin/dermal fillers. When not helping patients, Ashley enjoys going for a run, spending time with family, and getting her hands dirty in the garden.
Michaela has recently returned to the US after living abroad in London for 10 years where she worked as a nurse in palliative care and completed a comprehensive, masters-level program in neurotoxin and dermal fillers taught by London’s renowned Harley Street physicians. She has a innate ability to actively listen and help formulate creative solutions for her patient’s concerns. Michaela loves working with clients to enhance their own natural beauty, so they radiate confidence every time they look in the mirror.
