Skinworks graduates always amaze us with the incredible things they do with their education! Last month we were able to interview one of our alumni who is now working at a medical spa! Her name is Stephanie Stone and she works at Qwella in South Jordan, Utah. We had the chance to ask her some questions about her journey into esthetics to help other people decide if it’s right for them. We’re proud of her success and are excited to see what she is able to continue to do!
Stephanie used to work for a gift basket company. She made the marketing and branding for lots of large companies. She decided she wanted to change careers for a long time leading up to her enrollment at Skinworks, but it took the encouragement and support of her fiance and family members to get her to take the plunge!
One of the old instructors from Skinworks is a good friend of Stephanie’s, and was able to help her feel confident about enrolling. Stephanie took a tour of the school and felt comfortable and at home! Two days after the tour she received a handwritten note in the mail thanking her for visiting. That personal touch was the reason Stephanie decided Skinworks was for her!
The Skinworks Experience
Stephanie describes her education at Skinworks as being exciting and amazing! The course structure provided the perfect balance of study and book work with clients and hands-on practice. By completing the master esthetics program, Stephanie was specifically prepared for work in a medical spa environment. Stephanie explained that the school was always there to help support her in developing herself to be ready to work in medical esthetics.
Employment After Graduation
It didn’t take Stephanie long to find a job she loved after graduating from Skinworks! She said that it only took her about a week to find Qwella! Every Thursday Skinworks holds business classes, and one of the instructors for that class also happened to be a business coach for Qwella. She was coming in and doing services with Stephanie so she was able to make the connection very quickly! Stephanie started at Qwella right after Christmas in 2017, and she absolutely loves working in esthetics!
She told us that Skinworks was able to support her and her classmates with career placement opportunities even while they were still in school. Skinworks is always posting job opportunities, bringing in businesses that are looking to hire, and that Skinworks is willing to put a word out for you. She loved that Skinworks has a focus on getting graduates placed in esthetics careers after graduation!
