"It is so satisfying to work with someone to achieve the “vision” they have for their face! Whether it’s to look refreshed and not so tired, or to get that “Wow” factor, I get to see their joy and happiness immediately, and I have had clients cry in my chair because they never thought they could look younger or turn back the hands of time.” - Leona Bukartek, RN

Leona was born a military "brat," served in the Air Force, and married an Army Medivac helicopter pilot. In 2003, Virginia became her permanent home. Leona was a National Honor Society graduate of Georgia State College with a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing. In her senior year, she won the prestigious award for Best Senior Nursing Student in her class.
Her greatest love is education, and her study of esthetics has taken her to many classes in numerous states and in Canada. Leona is always searching for "what she doesn't know." She is a perfectionist and knows she has succeeded when her patients' vision of what they want is accomplished. Her family of three daughters is her greatest love.
In her free time, Leona loves to run, read, travel, and garden. She especially loves to take continuing education classes about anything medical or involving facial esthetics.
She is a member of the following organizations:
- American Academy of Medical Esthetic Professionals
