Owner & Licensed Master Esthetician

Emily graduated from The Aveda Institutes’ Esthiology Science program in April of 2013. Since then, she has accomplished training with PCA Skin to become a certified professional in skin biology and chemical peels, and Advanced Esthetic Training with Complexions & Circadia Skin which involved a double concentration in dermaplaning. Her time at the Skincare Therapy Institute resulted in her certification as an Oncology Esthetician (backed by The Board of Oncologists). In addition, she achieved her Virginia Master Esthetic License and is now a Master Hydrafacialist after completing schooling with The Hydrafacial Company.

In December of 2016, Emily moved from Lake Charles, Louisiana to Virginia Beach, Virginia, and she continues to thrive in the Hampton Roads community. When not practicing esthetics, Emily loves spending time with her family, friends, and hanging out at the beach with her pup, Scruffy.

Gianna Raggio

Office Manager

After exploring her interests in cosmetology, Gianna discovered she had more of a passion for creative, yet less hands-on work. Putting her heart and soul into various customer service-based positions, Gianna realized her true passion is improving processes, efficiency, and organization. Combining this with her love of all things beauty, when the opportunity arose to settle into a management role at Emily Anne Esthetics, it felt like a natural fit. 


Though she is a military transplant, Gianna has considered Hampton Roads home since 2017. In her spare time, Gianna loves to go thrifting for unique decor, try out new hobbies, and spend time with her husband and friends.

Licensed Master Esthetician

Ari is a Licensed Master Esthetician, born and raised in the 757. She found her love and ambition for skincare through her own personal struggles and progressions with cystic acne, hyperpigmentation and scarring. She discovered that improving the health of the skin by making better lifestyle choices promotes a healthier state of mind. One of her main goals in the field is to always be a student and to thoroughly educate clients on the health of skin, while promoting the mental health benefits of self-care. After finally taking a leap of faith, she attended The Chrysm Institute of Esthetics and graduated from her Master’s program in June 2022.


At EA Esthetics, Ari is excited to help your skin flourish with professional and medical skincare treatments for the face, neck and décolleté. Ari is passionate about empowering others to feel confident in their skin and in their bodies because, after all, your body is your home.


Outside of the treatment room, Ari enjoys lifting weights, watching anything binge-worthy, reading juicy novels, and being the most competitive person in any game. You can also find her helping SandSpeedVB coach young athletes of Hampton Roads or playing beach flag football for the SandSpeed Hustlers almost all year long.

Licensed Master Esthetician

Allison was born and raised here in Virginia. She is a graduate from The Chrysm Institute of Esthetics in Virginia Beach, VA where she completed both Professional and Master Esthetics programs.


Her love for esthetics came later in life but the curiosity has always been there. Growing up in a generation that loves to utilize instagram filters, it is so incredibly easy to compare yourself to others and lose sight of how beautiful you are in real life. Allison found herself questioning how she could help others in finding that beauty for themselves and it lead her to esthetics. That’s why she believes that self care isn’t selfish, it’s a necessity! 


In her free time, you can find Allison hanging out with friends and family or nose deep in a good book!

Amanda was born in South Korea, grew up on the island of O’ahu in Hawai’i, and moved to Virginia in 2014.

When she discovered Esthetics and saw she could help people fall in love with the skin they’re in without all the editing or filters, she never looked back.


Amanda graduated from the Chrysm institute of esthetics in 2019 with her Master Esthetics License and received her Master Permanent Makeup License in 2022. Her attention to detail sets her apart in the Hampton roads area as a true Master of her craft as a brow and skin specialist.
