We would be nothing at Skinworks without our educators, so we were thrilled to have the opportunity to get to know our laser program instructor, Holly Davis! Skinworks brought Holly on board a few years ago help build out laser education from the ground up, and she has made us proud of what she’s built. Holly has a lot of wisdom and inspiration to share with us and the students she teaches!
About Holly Davis
Before getting into esthetics, Holly was a stay at home mom for many years. Raising her two children required a tremendous amount of diligent work, but even as occupied as she was, she knew that at some point she would have to go back to work. She’s always loved all things beauty, and looking her best is something she cares about. A friend pointed out that if she got an education in esthetics, she could give herself beauty treatments for the rest of her life and make a career of helping others to be more beautiful! From that moment onward, Holly knew she wanted to dive into esthetics.
She completed her esthetics training not long after and began her professional career as an esthetician. Medical esthetics fascinated her the most, but at the time she graduated, jobs in medical esthetics was still very competitive. It took her a while after moving between a couple different positions, but she was finally able to get into medical esthetics, working with laser medical services. It’s what she loves most!
Holly’s Role at Skinworks
A little over three years ago, Natalie, our owner, reached out to Holly. Natalie knew that Holly was looking for work at the time, and invited her to interview at Skinworks to be our laser program educator. Holly mentioned she was unsure about instructing at first, but it didn’t take long for her role at Skinworks to become her dream job!
Holly says that her favorite part about being at Skinworks is working with the students in small, intimate classes. When she attended her first esthetics program, she learned about lasers in classes of as many as 25 girls. At Skinworks, the largest laser class she’s had has been seven students! While there might be 50 or more students enrolled at Skinworks at any given time, Holly loves that each of the students are given personalized, individual attention to their laser education.
Holly’s method of teaching is also unique, and adds tremendous value to the Skinworks laser education. When she was first settling in at Skinworks, she had to learn how to use our machines from scratch. Not only does she teach our students how to use the laser machines at Skinworks, she also teaches students how to teach themselves to use other machines. This can help prepare students for their careers because laser machines can be very different from each other, and learning how to use the manuals for them can help graduates acclimate to machines they are not accustomed to.
