Danielle became known as The Acne Guru™ when she founded The San Diego Acne Clinic. After dealing with acne for ten years and three failed rounds of accutane, she took her acne health into her own hands and created the clinic’s 98% success rate in improving acne for others. Kayleigh, a Holistic Nutritionist, became a patient after her own dead-end quest to cure her own acne. After seeing the results that Danielle was able to deliver for Kayleigh, the two decided to join forces to help others clear their own skin. And with that, CLEARSTEM was born!
CLEARSTEM Skincare is an anti-aging and anti-acne skincare line with zero hormone disruptors and zero toxins. The WHY behind the brand is that anti-acne products age you and anti-aging products cause acne, which is why Kayleigh + Danielle created CLEARSTEM.

Fierce and Fearless at 40, 50 and Beyond! Taking back your power and living your best life!
Terri has been involved in pageantry since competing at age 16 and placing in the top 12 at the Miss Teenage California Scholarship Pageant. She subsequently went on to compete for the next 30 years in the Miss and Mrs. divisions of dozens of pageants. As a ‘Miss’ contestant, she placed 1st runner up at the iconic Miss Hollywood pageant; she was a top 5 finalist for the Southern California preliminary for Miss World and later that year won the title of Miss La Palma. After a short break to marry and have 2 babies, she won the title of Mrs. California United States, placing in the top 15 at the Miss United States pageant; she went on, after the age of 50, to hold the titles of Mrs USA Earth and Mrs. Global Elite.
She has been a mentor, coach, emcee, producer and director for contestants and pageants nationwide for 25 years, including founding and producing the Miss Greater Southern California pageant and is a nationally ranked pageant judge. She has coached hundreds of pageant contestants in every pageant system and age division all over the nation, in all areas of competition and specializing in the most difficult category- the Interview Competition.
Born and raised in Long Beach California, she was a competitive gymnast from age 12 through her second year of college, where she studied Behavioral Science. After college, she entered the fitness industry, where she taught classes and managed fitness clubs, including managing exercise studios for the iconic Richard Simmons.
Her favorite pastimes involve water- SCUBA diving, water skiing and whitewater rafting- and travel is her passion, but her greatest role in life has been raising her two adult daughters, Taryn and Brittany.
We are talking all things FABULOUS:
*Little girls- sugar, spice and everything nice
… expectations and messages received by society, teachers, parents, church . Molding us in ways and belief systems about how girls ‘should be’. How the world has changed its views of gender roles since our childhoods.
*The teen years- experiencing ‘firsts’- flirting with adulthood, getting our hearts broken and trying to figure out who we are.
….unsure of who we are- comparing ourselves to others- liking boys- OH BOY!- experimenting and risk taking- the pressure to be perfect- seeking autonomy.
* The twenties and thirties- when the world judges us by our relationship status. Establishing ourselves and feeling we have to achieve certain goals. Timetables for milestones differ- this can make us afraid. Second guessing ourselves and our choices. Pleasing others above all. The potential for losing ourselves in motherhood.
* Does life really begin at 40? The need to please begins to wane. Time to focus more on ourselves. Survived many ups and downs ( no one learns anything in the good times). Often in the ‘sandwich generation’ between kids and aging parents, which can be daunting… girlfriends really matter. Coming to terms with society seeing us as ‘older’.
* The fifties and beyond- everything we have been through up to this point has created who we are now. Society has changed its viewpoint of us. Redefining beauty on our own terms. The dichotomy of being more impatient yet more tolerant. More compassion and less appetite for BS. Wisdom kicks in. Courage kicks in. Today’s fiftysomething is not our mothers’ fiftysomething. Being afraid and doing it anyway. Bucket lists…. Mortality and limited time. Not waiting for others to make us happy. Taking risks. Comfortable in our sexuality.
