Hi Desiree, we’re thrilled to have a chance to learn your story today. So, before we get into specifics, maybe you can briefly walk us through how you got to where you are today?
I was in the medical field for over 10 years and needed a change, I left my medical job to return to school for Medical Esthetician, This is where my passion for beauty really began. I was struggling financially during esthetics school. There were times I slept in my car because I didn’t have enough money for gas to go home and back to school the next day. So needless to say, graduation couldn’t come soon enough. I was offered a job right after graduation, however, was soon disappointed. I was told to use products and services that did nothing for the skin. Sell, Sell, Sell. I honestly believe in products and services that truly change the skin which is why I left the esthetics world and returned back to the medical field. I worked in Dermatology for the next 2 years and loved every second of it. I learned so much and cannot thank Dr. David Sax enough for the knowledge and experience I gained. Then the CO-VID pandemic came and I was furloughed from the hospital job I had at the time. During my furlough, I thought about all the knowledge and experience I had gained throughout the years, how I could have something of my own, how I could make money for my family, and find my true passion. Then my answer literally came to me in a dream, a beauty business. So, Glow Beauty by Desiree was born.
Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not, what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
I had some financial troubles during school as I could not work a full-time job. I moved in with my dad during this time because the esthetics school was near his home. It was easier to commute.
Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
I have a beauty spa in Sarasota, FL. I have unique custom glow facials that cater to the needs of the client’s skin. I think that each glow facial differs from one client to the next. My services include glow facials, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, micro-needling, intimate bleaching, microcurrent, galvanic current, sugar waxing, express 30-minute facial and professional spray tanning, I also do mobile spray tanning service as well. I really want to help clients love their skin. My daughter is the best thing that ever happened to me and the look on her face when she saw my business sign from the road was a proud moment for me.
When I think about the future of Glow Beauty by Desiree, I would love to add on a hair dresser, and nail tech. This will allow me to give each client beautiful skin, hair and nails, all over beauty. I believe in education so consistently adding on services and products to better address the clients skin care needs.
