My name is PhyaLily Montaño. I usually just go by Phya, (like Sofia without the ‘so’). I was born in Boise, Idaho, and have been back and forth here most of my life. I also lived in South Korea a couple times to study the language and the culture. Since I was very young I’ve been interested in skincare and makeup and in June 2020 I graduated from Aveda Institute Boise. In my free time I like to sew dresses and other garments for myself and my loved ones. I also love to cook, spend time with my family and my pets, and recently I’ve been trying to get into crocheting. I became an esthetician because I wanted to help people feel confident and beautiful in their own skin!
