"Through my journey of professional experiences as an Esthetician I have realized a few things. First, you must pursue aesthetics as a holistic experience and second it must always remain client centered. Throughout my career I have been blessed with outstanding opportunities and experiences in my field of practice. Since 2003 I have worked in a salon/spa, laser clinic, medical spa and dermatology and finally my own clinic and training facility. I have also had the amazing and challenging experience of becoming an EMT and finishing nursing school in 2013. Each season of my professional life has enriched my skills and relationships maintained with my wonderful clients and fellow peers. Exposing myself to each avenue this industry has to offer has helped me fine tune, balance and perfect my treatments. After 10 years I still consider myself a student and hope I always do. There have been many highlights in my career. One that stands out the most and has aided me with the platform for teaching is my experience as a technical writer and expert advisor for Milady Standard text books and Cengage Publishing. I have been able to use my passion for esthetics and love for teaching to make educational DVD’s and textbook content. Fast forward a few years and I now have the opportunity to share these skills with talented therapist like yourself through an awesome company, DermaplanePro. Helping others connect the dots, ignite that inner flame and support students in the fruition of mastering their dermaplane technical skills is exciting. DermaplanePro products, education materials, and professional staff is the perfect choice to take your career to the next level and set your skills and services apart from the competition. Stay hungry! Stay inspired! Collaborate with other talented and like-minded professionals. Learn more, do more and give more. Let’s get to work with DermaplanePRo! See you soon." - Sonia
