“I have been an esthetician for over 11 years. I still go to Marie for her profound knowledge that she has in the industry, in skincare and in science. There is always something that I learn from her and she inspires me in every conversation. She is a wealth of knowledge, but also an amazing leader, and overall person. I am eager to continue to learn more from her, and super excited for the upcoming courses she will be teaching.”
