When and how did you first develop a passion for your work?
I'm passionate about health and beauty and that led me to become a medical aesthetician. I focus on skin rejuvenation, laser hair removal, and tattoo removal. I like helping people feel better about themselves and I feel as an aesthetician I can pay it forward in that fashion by helping others look and feel better.
What is one fun, unusual fact about your business?
I'm a huge fan of vintage everything. My theme and ads mostly revolve around pinups, pop art, and Victorian style. That's pure beauty to me and I think every woman wants to feel like a classic old Hollywood movie star! (Men too!)
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
I became a certified medical aesthetician at the National Laser Institute in Scottsdale AZ, and graduated at the top of my class.It's the most respected school for my field of work. My results with clients are impeccable and effective. Feel free to go to my yelp page and see my reviews
Though dogs tend to lovingly follow their owners' lead, that's not where the name Me & My Shadow came from. The owners had a dog named Shadow, an american eskimo that began suffering from health problems, including blindness, at an early age. When Shadow became too skittish to take walks around the neighborhood, his owners decided to put a pool in the backyard. Shadow was delighted to swim in it, and for years afterward, it seemed he was happiest during the summer swimming season.
This inspired Me & My Shadow, an indoor pool and recreation center where dogs can exercise and learn to socialize throughout the year. By-appointment swimming sessions are kept private to ensure dogs and owners—who can take a dip, too—feel comfortable. Pet parents can also sign their dogs up for training sessions, which are led by Judy Hales, an experienced trainer who takes a gentle, positive approach to instruction, as opposed to just rolling her eyes at dogs that can't complete their given task.
World of Pole’s instructors help people boost health and self- confidence in a variety of fun-centered fitness classes. Pole-fitness classes tailored to men and women combine sensual dance moves with full-body exercises that strengthen muscles and improve coordination. Meanwhile, Zumba fuses fun dance steps with Latin beats that keep students so entertained, they hardly know they're burning calories. Instructors also host a bevy of other fun fitness classes, including Hoopnotica hoop dance that leads students through graceful choreography with the aid of a hula hoop, Glide-n-Tone sessions that strengthen muscles thanks to moveable discs, and trapeze classes that instill the circus attraction's basic techniques while building up core muscles and the ability to tame lions.
Feet dance up and down the six electric strips that run across a 4,200-square-foot raised floor amid shouts of “En garde!” and blunted foils whipping through the air, meeting each other with the piercing ring of steel on steel or glancing off of padded vests. This scene takes place each weeknight at Salle d'Etroit Fencing Academy, where coaches Ben Schleis, Rebecca Keeling, and Jon Zelkowski teach the finer points of fencing, a sport originally developed by the French as an excuse to wear white after Bastille Day. The experts preside over classes for adults and youths, teaching them to wield foils, épées, and sabers.
In addition to organizing classes, the United States Fencing Association–sanctioned club hosts tournaments and matches pupils with new and used equipment at the pro shop. Should their weapons have issues after being used to clean whales' teeth, students can drop by the armory, where technicians take care of rewiring blades and other fixes.
In 1955, the world saw many famous firsts: President Eisenhower hosted the first televised presidential news conference, Gunsmoke began its legendary run, and Fortney Eyecare Associates opened its first practice. Today, a quintet of locations hosts board-certified doctors of optometry ready to keep Detroit peepers healthy and focused. After thorough exams, patients can decamp to Fortney’s frame shops, which house designer eyewear from labels including Ray-Ban, Prada, Nike, and Versace.
In addition to general eyewear, the practice also specializes in safety eyewear, working with businesses to supply and repair the type of industrial eyewear that's best for each workplace or astigmatic traffic cones. The national administrator of General Motors' prescription safety eyewear program since 1992, Fortney was hailed GM’s Supplier of the Year for its no-nonsense professional chops.
