BN: What made you fall in love with working at Bella Nani? Why do you love working here?
Stephanie: Working at Bella Nani is not work. Bella Nani is not a workplace. Bella Nani is a second home, in the staff is family. Just coming into the salon your enveloped by the joy and care Kimberly wants to bring to everyone here. The essence of Kimberly’s love comes out of every cozy corner.
BN: How did you get into the industry?
Stephanie: I have always enjoyed giving massages to my loved ones. I was introduced to essential oils, and became a wellness advocate. I then learned about aromatouch and went to a certification to be an aromatouch technician.
BN: What is an in industry dream job for you (besides Bella Nani)?
Stephanie: Working in collaboration with other people who enjoy helping and healing as many people as we can touch.
BN: What 3 tools in your kit can you not live without?
Stephanie: Fractionated coconut oil, Deep blue essential oil blend and On Guard essential oil blend
BN: What is your favorite product offered at Bella Nani and why?
Stephanie: It would be hair cut and style color by Kylie Lesson. Why is simple Kylie is a magician when it comes to hair color and again you can see her passion when she does your hair. She’s one of the many blessings at Bella Nani
BN: Advice for anyone just starting out in the industry?
Stephanie: The first piece of advice is to make sure that you have a passion for the industry and you’re willing to work for your goals. You can’t ever think you’ve learned it all, and your consumer must always be first.
BN: Favorite service to do?
Stephanie: It’s a little different with aromatouch because the variety is just where it’s applied. So I would have to say my favorite thing yo provide would be whatever the client needs to bring them comfort or peace. So whether it’s a foot, hand or complete aromatouch Session, it’s my favorite if it has helped the client.
BN: What has been your best day on the job?
Stephanie: Once at a vendor event I was offering free hand aromatouch and I met a woman who had suffered a stroke. Her hand was atrophied almost in a closed fist. She said that she would like to try a hand massage and it wouldn’t hurt to go ahead and force it open and massage it. When I was done and looked at her face I could see tears in her eyes when she told me that was the first time she felt anything in that hand for a very long time.
BN: Favorite Quote?
Stephanie: I’m a wordy girl so one quote would be very difficult but I’ll go with Abraham Lincoln: “A person is about as happy as they make up their mind to be.”
BN: Hidden talents or funny stories you want to share?
Stephanie: I don’t know if these talents are hidden, I’m pretty much an open book. I love to offer comfort and advice. Cooking is another passion of mine. And writing I love to write. Someday I’d actually love to star in my own written play.
