I do not have a one-track mind. I am not the person that has one dream or hobby and has been doing it for years.
I am the person that has an interest in everything. I always want to learn something new and gets bored easily. So, when it came to having a career, I was terrified. I was worried I would start a job and love it but end up getting bored and feeling trapped.
I knew my passion was caring for people and making them happy, and I thought that laid in Nursing. My senior year of High school I did Running Start for Nursing and became a Certified Nursing Assistant. The program was all hands-on learning and that’s my strong suit, so I thrived doing the clinical and it made me feel so good taking care of people that couldn’t do it themselves.
After Graduating I spent a year at WSU doing my undergrad for nursing and although the year was fun, I HATED school. I could not get through all the stupid pre-recs. I couldn’t wrap my head around why I had to take these classes that had nothing to do with major. It frustrated me more than anything because I was already involved in the nursing community and I didn’t want to wait to learn more of what I loved.
I decided to leave WSU after my first year and channel my love for care in a different way. Nursing is an amazing and rewarding career, but for me I was lacking the creativity I was craving.
My love to create and my love for people met in Makeup Artistry. I wanted to help people prioritize themselves, while helping them feel beautiful from the inside, out. In order to do so, I felt like I needed a base knowledge of skin. You can’t put products on someone’s face and expect it to look good without caring for the skin first.
What I realized was I loved all things Esthetics. I realized there is a never-ending world to learn. When I was taking my introduction course to Microblading in November of 2016, I fell in love with the procedure. It allowed me to put my skills and knowledge from nursing into use. I loved the fact it felt like I was performing a procedure, yet I still have so much creative freedom.
In the Esthetics world, you are only required to take your initial schooling, BUT that does not mean that is a lack of specialized classes to advance your learning. This to me, is heaven. I love the freedom to learn specific topics that I’m interested in from people I admire.
I know own my own business because to be honest, I am a control freak. I couldn’t find a spa that would let me practice all the skills I have, and I wasn’t going to love some of my favorite skills because a company didn’t offer that particular service. I preach self-care, so I decided to take care of myself and do EXACTLY what I wanted.
I opened up Beauclair Beauty Bar, so I could produce creativity freely. I opened my doors to help my clients find time for self-care. I wanted my clients to feel like their time spent in my chair was relaxing and worth it.
I am really proud of the space that I have created for my clients because it is created out of a passion for people and I hope that is felt.
I am fortunate enough to have my hobby be my career, so I am constantly surrounding myself by my work. I thought I would get bored of my career, but really, I could never learn enough. Esthetics has an entire library of subjects and I am so excited to keep exploring them.
