What is your educational background, and how do you continue your education in the industry?
I actually went to college for criminal justice, so I could not be further from where I thought I would be, which was in law school. I am now a licensed aesthetician and I absolutely love continuing my education through in-person and online education. The COVID-19 pandemic made it hard to have access to in-person education, but the industry really stepped up, offering weekly webinars, podcasts, and virtual conferences. I went to an Aveda concept school, so I learned a lot about ayurvedic practices. I have studied gut health and its effects on skin, corneotherapy, treating higher Fitzpatrick types, and I am also trained in advanced modalities such as microneedling, chemical peels, Hydrafacial, LED, and more. I have goals of becoming an international educator, and I want to help bring comprehensive education to aesthetics, so it has been crucial that I learn all different types of philosophies for treating skin.
