Michelle Perry, Licensed Master Esthetician Instructor, Salt Lake Campus
My journey to esthetics was a long and very fun process. I started out in the modeling world & realized I wanted to do more behind the scenes work. I started doing a lot of makeup & I trained in L.A for a while then moved back to Salt Lake City. I got a job at Got Beauty & I worked my way up there as their lead makeup artist, and spray tan technician. I knew I wanted to offer more and have a license behind me. So I went to The Skin Science Institute to get my Master Esthetic license. After I received my license I continued on to get my Instructors license. I still work at Got Beauty offering all esthetic services. I oversee the spa at the Skin Science Institute. Having both jobs is very rewarding because I am able to do all aspects of the work I love. Every day I learn something new, I am honored to be a part of the team at the Skin Science Institute. The staff and students make my day.

She is excited to be in an amazing and life changing industry and not only teach others what esthetics has to offer but also continuing her education and training in this ever evolving industry.
