    • Jocelyn Ash
  • How long have you known that you wanted to be an aesthetician?  
    • I found out about esthetics by accident.  It was one of the best things ever!

  • What is your favorite class/module and why?  
    • I love all of it!  It’s all very interesting and I love the variety it’s too hard to choose.
  • Who is your favorite instructor and why?  
    • Carol Venclik, she is an amazing mentor and sets a great example of what it means to be a lifelong learner.  She also genuinely cares for people and wants to see them succeed. Linda Anne Kahn loves to share information and help others grow and be successful.
  • What is your favorite aspect of being an instructor?  
    • I love creating space for others to learn and grow.  I love knowing that there are unlimited possibilities waiting for them in the industry. 
  • What was the best advice you ever received when you were in school?  
    • That I could do anything for a little bit, when I was feeling overwhelmed.  If I was passionate about it I would be successful.  
  • What do you think is the most important thing for students going into the massage industry to remember today?

    • I am passionate about this field because there is always something new to learn, it’s always growing and evolving.  I also love caring for others.
  • What is the most important thing for aestheticians to remember even after they are licensed and certified?  
    • You need to continue to learn, be willing to have a high standard even when others don’t, treat all your clients special.
  • What is one common misconception about the field?  
    • It’s not just about makeup and creams, we make people feel better about themselves from the inside out.
  • Is there anything else you want to share?  
    • Everyone has a story, and since we don’t always know the story be willing to be humble, don’t make assumptions, give people grace, always do your best.
