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.
