GETTING TO KNOW…..BRENDA RODRIGUEZ: OWNER OF THE SKIN ROOM
BIO: Hi, my name is Brenda Rodriguez and I have been an esthetician since October 2005. Since then I have attended many additional skin care product knowledge courses and esthetics educational training in the science of the skin and it’s required care to keep it healthy and happy.
We believe the esthetics industry offers an ongoing learning experience & keeping up with available knowledge is key to being the best esthetician possible. Our passion for skin care makes our job an enjoyable experience each day we work. We believe that investing in our skin is an investment that lasts a lifetime.
From Facials, Chemical peels, Microdermabrasion, to Waxing services, We take pride in each treatment we perform. The connection with our customers that establish trust and personal attention for their needs and requests are fulfilling to us. The Skin Room is purely a wonderful place to be an Esthetician and indulge in a career that we simply adore.
What is your favorite thing about your career/company?
My favorite thing about my career is being able to work on different clients skin care needs and concern. I love being able to educate clients on how to take care of their skin correctly and give them a boost of confidence. I love being able to pamper a client and at the same time help them look and feel their best!
What motivated you to start your company (a little history)
Honestly I never thought or imagined that I would be a business owner. I went through a transition in my life that brought me to Whittier. Shortly after establishing my self in Whittier – I thought every door around me was closing. I thought my career as an esthetician had hit rock bottom. but my passion for the industry is what kept me going. I wanted the freedom of making my own schedule and I wanted to create my own workspace where I can take care of clients my way. I was determined to have a place with meaning and purpose, a place that would bring skin care and wellness together.
What is your proudest accomplishment?
I’d have to say my proudest accomplishment is motivating my friend Nicole to branch off on her own and open her own business.
What is the best feature or item from your Company?
The Skin Room is known for having the best “happy hour” in town. We do an amazing Microdermabrasion Facial which includes extractions, customized facial mask and facial massage. We offer this at an incredible price! Clients are able to come in and relax and enjoy a Happy Hour facial with a glass of wine!
How would your friends describe you?
Loyal, smart, enthusiastic, problem solver
What are your hobbies?
Hiking and being out doors. I love just getting out side and doing things, especially with my son! I feel no stress when I’m hiking, and I love exploring the out doors through the eyes of my 8 year old! He’s full of wonder and full of adventure.
List two pet peeves.
1: hairy ears ( we can wax that for you)
2: entitlement, we all have to work for what we have!
Where do you see yourself in five years?
In 5 years I hope to have a second location for The Skin Room.
If you could go back in time to change one thing, what would it be?
I’ve always lived my life with the idea and belief that EVERYTHING happens for a reason. I’d honestly have to say that I wouldn’t change anything. Even when I look back and wonder if I made the right choices in my life – I truly look at the outcome of what it’s brought me. I wouldn’t be where I am today with out all of those choices! At the end of the day I’m very thankful and blessed to have a beautiful and healthy son full of wonder and light and I have a small business where I get to use my trade that I’m passionate about to help people feel and look their best!
