After eight years....change is good!
It was 8 years ago this month, when I decided to leave my 13 year career in residential property management and become a licensed esthetician. The idea of going to cosmetology school was so foreign. I remember telling people, "Just call me Madonna! Reinventing myself at 35 years old!" When I told my dad about the idea, I asked "Did I just tell you the equivalent of one saying they are joining the circus?"
All I knew at that time, was a memory popped into my head from 5 years earlier when my high school friend gave me a facial. I had never heard of such a thing, and afterward, I knew. "I am going to do this for a chapter in my life!!" I knew in my heart of hearts I was going to do this. This was the first time, I knew anything for sure in my life.
I am blessed to have joined Natural Body Works as I was graduating. Many of you have walked with me from the very beginning. I healed your skin, gave you joy and a safe place to express how you really feel about your life, taught you about water/oil balance and you changed my life forever! I have learned who I am as a woman, entrepreneur, mother, spouse and friend. I have personally grown in courage, gentleness, self-control, perseverance, trust, forgiveness and patience. I am in love with every one of you that joins me at my treatment room each month.
I am so grateful to Shanna, who owns Natural Body Works, for giving me a safe place to treat you. We have grown so much in our careers from our first meeting 8 years ago. I have forever love for her, in her life, love and career.
That being said, new chapters bring renewed life, energy and excitement! Effective, January 1, 2018, I am joining the wellness team at Flourish: A Space for Dimensional Healing in Uptown Vancouver!
