Name: Aimee Sax
Years in the Wellness/Beauty Industry:
8 years as a Licensed Esthetician.
Most Memorable Tip:
My most memorable trip was from a very young guest who was not very experiences receiving facials. She gave me a big hug and $100 bucks; it was the last thing I expected.
How did you choose a career in the Wellness industry?
My main reason for getting into the industry was that I really enjoy the spa atmosphere as a client. I decided that I'd like to pursue skincare as a career. Once I got into school I absolutely fell in love with the skin and the science behind it. From there I connected my knowledge of the skin with my desire to help people with their skin.
Greatest reward of doing the work?
The greatest reward so far in my career has been the satisfaction of seeing our guests when they leave, knowing that they feel and look different. Their appreciation is so rewarding. It's really gratifying to see clients experience results through my knowledge. I get to meet new people every single day. Even when I come to work on the worst day ever, by the time the end of my shift comes I am in a great mood. It’s reciprocal-I've been turned around by my own guests.
Top two things you wish or would like to change in the industry?
The change I would make in the industry is creating a way to get current information, updated trends and in the moment information shared to those of us who spend most of our time behind closed doors/hands on in the treatment room. It would be great to get new and exciting information faster to us.
Who is your Mentor and why?
My mentor is my father. He's hard working, gives the best advice and is the person I look up to for everything. Also, my colleagues I look to them every day for guidance and feedback. We share advice on how to handle different situations and I learn from them.
