What was a major challenge you had to overcome to get to where you are today?
One of the biggest challenges I dealt with was my skin. I had severe cystic acne that nothing seemed to help. Eventually I discovered an amazing aesthetician who finally cleared up my cystic acne. From that moment, I wanted to know how I could repair my skin at the cellular level to fix the years of scarring my acne left behind. Eventually, I was able to repair 80% of my own acne scarring. This was a huge boost to my self-esteem and really encouraged me to start a clinic of my own, where I could help others achieve the same results.
What drives you to keep working hard each day?
Having a purpose larger than myself. I go to work each day knowing that what I do really makes a difference in the lives of others. It’s a lot easier to feel connected to what you do when you know you’re creating value.
If you could start over, what would you do differently?
I would have managed my stress better. It takes such a toll on all aspects of your life, especially your health and relationships. I would’ve had more faith that even in the face of extreme challenges, things would work out. And I would’ve spent more time with my husband and kids.
