Candace Taylor is the owner and manager of Glow Up Aesthetics. Candace grew up in Traverse City, Ml and moved to Kalamazoo for college in 2001. She was married to Dr. Brett Taylor in 2006. She is the mother of 3 girls, aged 17, 13 and 6. Candace and her husband own Taylor Chiropractic in Otsego, Ml. He is the third generation chiropractor in his family. As a couple and family they love to travel, especially to Mexico beaches.
Candace became passionate about aesthetics when she started getting her own treatments for skin. After years of driving 40 minutes to get such services performed, she decided to open her own Med Spa in Otsego next door to their chiro office. They opened New Healthcare and Med Spa in 2020 and in 2021 decided that Kalamazoo was a better fit. They rebranded the current business to Glow Up Aesthetics.
Candace’s favorite part of any day is seeing clients build confidence in self care by helping transform their skin or appearance. Woman empowering women!

Lacey Freeman, NP-C
Lacey has been a registered nurse since 2009 and a nurse practitioner since 2013. She spent most of the last 10 years working in surgical specialties such as cardiothoracic and vascular. Around 4 years ago, Lacey started really investing in her skin with quality products and Botox. Needless to say, she fell in love! She is a certified nurse injector and loves working with her clients to enhance their natural beauty and meet their aesthetic goals. In her free time, she loves spending time with her husband and 3 kids as well as lifting weights and cooking. You’ll likely pick up on her southern draw since she was born and raised in the south but is thrilled that Michigan is now home!
