Describe your business. Did you find it, or did it find you?
My business focuses on clean and safe spray tanning, hair and makeup. My passion for natural ingredients started when I worked at an Aveda Concept Salon in Encinitas. Being responsible for the environment and what is put into our products is a value that I hold true to my business. I find that every time I take a class, I have something new and exciting to bring back to my clients.
What was the first job you ever had, and what did you learn from the experience?
My first job was at a coffee shop. The experience gave me a much greater appreciation for service workers and taught me to be patient with myself and others, and to stay humble.
How are you involved with both the community and your customer?
I’ve been a volunteer with the American Cancer Society’s “Look Good Feel Better” program, and am now creating something more one-on-one with clients and family going through chemo via a GoFundMe campaign (gofundme.com/dpu7dwzp).
Where do you go when the going gets tough?
Serenity Spa and Soul Yoga.
What’s your favorite place to eat out locally?
Pizza Bene in Placerville.
Where do you and your family go locally to have fun?
Hiking in Salmon Falls.
If you could meet someone living or dead, who would it be and why?
Betty White. She’s a huge animal lover and has a killer sense of humor. I treasure people who don’t take themselves seriously and are still working at age 94.
And finally, customer service is…?
Taking notes after listening to your clients’ goals—what formula was used last time, what level tan, etc. Writing down custom notes reminds me to follow-up and create a better experience every time. Also, providing a listening ear and having a good attitude.
