Meet Monica Byrd of Monica Byrd Skin Care in Simi Valley

Today we’d like to introduce you to Monica Byrd.

Monica, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I worked as an Esthetician in Spain and Colombia for 5 years. I moved to the United States in 2012 and wanted to continue my dream of being a business owner in this profession. In the beginning, I was a little nervous being in a new country, not speaking fluent English as my first language is Spanish, but my passion for doing Skin Care helped me overcome my initial fear. I received my license in August 2016, have all the modern machines needed to be a successful Esthetician, and now opened my business working out of my home that is approved by the State of California. My business is growing with the help of client referrals, Instagram, Yelp where clients have written nice reviews. I love to learn about current technology, latest products, so I can continue to provide excellent service to my clients. It makes me very happy to see my clients happy when the treatment is finished, seeing their skin improved after each treatment, knowing I have helped them makes me feel great! My goal is to one day open a spa, where I have employees, who have the same passion I have for helping people with their skin!

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
For me, not speaking fluent English! The school I attended where I received my license was all in English, but my passion for being an Esthetician helped overcome this challenge.
