Taking a trip down memory lane: Before opening Face2Face Spa Studio, let's talk about how I got to where I am. My first introduction to the beauty industry was through my mother's salon; I would help whenever possible and needed. I graduated from the University of Phoenix School of Business with a Bachelor's degree in Business Management with a concentration in Entrepreneurship. While working in corporate, I went through two corporate layoffs and decided it was time to go back to school for something I enjoyed beauty school.

When I first began, I thought I loved makeup, and that was my calling; I would walk into beauty school with a full face of makeup every time, and my instructor at the time told me that if I wanted to be the best esthetician, I could be, I needed to understand skin and care for my well-being. I would drink two Pepsis every morning, decided to care for myself, and knew it was time to make healthier choices. Seeing that my skin improved drastically after I applied what I learned and committed to making healthier choices was amazing.

I've been in the industry since 2007. I'm licensed in the States of Georgia and the state of Illinois. I have worked in Georgia as a store manager at American Laser. I returned to Chicago. No matter what I did, I always fell back into skincare; it has always been my passion.

I noticed that when treating people of color, most people needed guidance on providing a service or recommending a product due to being poorly informed or trained. Resulting in skin concerns worsening or overall poor skin care. These situations would infuriate me, and I knew I wanted to make a difference and be able to help all kinds of skin concerns; it is important for me that each person that walks in leaves feeling beautiful and confident, which is why I poured everything into learning everything there is to know.

Of course, you never stop learning, which is why even to this day, I continue to educate myself and take courses that will make me better. As I begin to teach, I know that as my student learn and grow, so will I.

Why become an educator?

Entering the world of education is a new chapter. Being an educator is a two-way street. It's a mutual journey of discovery. Educators play a pivotal role in imparting the technical skills and knowledge that form the foundation of a successful esthetician's career. However, beyond technical know-how, educators are responsible for instilling a strong sense of professionalism and ethics in future estheticians. Recently, there needs to be more emphasis on genuinely caring for each client and how that will either make or break an esthetician's career. Face2Face Spa Studio and I will ensure that my students deeply understand the importance of customer service. "customer service is first before anything people are going to remember how nice you were, how you treated, all the please and thank you before they even talk about how great your service was." The ripple effects of an educator's influence extend beyond the student. Educators shape estheticians who, in turn, positively impact their clients' well-being. Educators enhance clients' self-esteem and confidence by teaching estheticians to provide quality care and personalized treatments.

With all that said, I am very excited to be allowed to be an educator!
