Between her busy work schedule and classes at Dermalogica, we were able to catch up with Ana and talk about her award from Canada's COSA (Cosmetic Outstanding Service Award). Ana was the recipient for the 2018 Best Service by a Skin Therapist in a Spa a very prestigious and well deserved accolade. During this podcast she also shares with us what keeps her client's coming back and loyal and her top advice for fellow skin therapists. "Love what you do and do it will all of your heart."
