After graduating from Assumption College with an accounting degree, I soon realized that accounting/finance was not the career field I wanted. Only a few months later, I enrolled into esthetics school at Catherine Hinds Institute of Esthetics. Skincare had always been an obsession of mine, so I decided to go back to school for a career I knew I would enjoy. I graduated from their 1,200-hour, Master Esthetics program, as a Licensed Esthetician.
In high school and my early years in college, I worshiped the sun. If I wasn’t lying outside for hours at a time, I was visiting a tanning bed. In esthetic school, I learned how damaging the sun, and the radiation it emits is for the skin. I found out that the sun is the greatest cause of damaged, prematurely aged skin. Sunscreen, which I had only used at the beach, became a necessity in my daily morning routine.
The skin is the body’s largest organ and it made me cringe to think about the harm I had caused to mine over the years. However, I still wasn’t ready to embrace my Irish complexion, so I became interested in airbrush tanning.
As I was researching different types of professional tanning solution, I stumbled upon Kelly Callaghan and her business, Spray Tan Class. I had already decided that I was going to start my own airbrush tanning business, but had no idea where to start. After browsing through Kelly’s training, I decided to sign-up for her 4-week 1:1 training and it was a total game changer for me. I can say with 100% certainty that the information I learned from Kelly (from all of her online training, e-books, webinars, and social media posts), I wouldn’t have learned as effectively on my own. I am now opening my own airbrush tanning studio! It was only 9 months ago that I decided to start a mobile business. I didn’t even have a business name, website, or all the materials I needed. It is all because of Kelly’s support, experience, and genuine love to see others succeed!
I have established Kissed, an organic airbrush tanning service, as a much healthier and safer method for obtaining a glowing appearance. My goal is to educate others on the importance of skin health and to provide an alternative service to sunbathing that looks just as natural.
