Esthetician Story

Sarah D.

[I love that skincare] makes people feel beautiful and confident from the inside out.  I love seeing the change, I love seeing the metamorphosis, I love seeing the glow...To going from having acne to barely having acne, to see that transformation and to see the transformation in my clients—whether it's a major skin care issue or getting them on my table, [from] having them be so stressed to 50 minutes later they're mush—it fascinates me.  I love it.

I knew someday that I wanted to move to Florida.  Well, the timing was perfect.  I ended up coming down here in November of 2012...and I really wanted to work in a resort spa.  Unfortunately there weren't many openings, it just wasn't right.  And one day I stumbled across Massage Envy.  Of course I'd heard of Massage Envy, but…I wasn't super familiar with it.  I sent an application, got the interview, and here I am.  [I’m] very thankful.

I never thought that I'd work for Massage Envy.  I thought, honestly, I was going to be rocking it at a resort spa in Vero Beach, and I'm rocking it at Massage Envy.  Sometimes you've got to go down the path that's hidden.  You've got to find the hidden gem.

I think the main thing for me, coming from very seasonal resort spas, is that I have a chance to see the same client week after week, month after month, not [just] year after year, and I love that…I work every month.  We're open seven days a week.  It's job security.  It's a no brainer.

My co-workers are phenomenal. We have a smaller clinic, but we're definitely family there…You have the products.  You have the protocols.  It doesn't matter if you come to see me for a facial in Vero Beach, Florida or if you come to Las Vegas, Nevada, you know what to expect.  You have the consistency.  You have the brand.  You have the benefits.  You have the corporation to back you.  You have longevity.

I never thought that I'd work for Massage Envy.  I thought, honestly, I was going to be rocking it at a resort spa in Vero Beach, and I'm rocking it at Massage Envy.  Sometimes you've got to go down the path that's hidden.  You've got to find the hidden gem.  It's great, phenomenal, amazing to work for a company that steps up to [their] values.  They're not just putting out these words and expecting you to follow through, because the company's actually following through with the values and setting the example.  That's very admirable.  It's not just a piece of paper with words…They're living it every day and it's trickling down to us, so it's nice to see that.  It's nice to see the passion, it's nice to see the gratitude.  It's nice to see validity.
