At Aveda Idaho we love our students!
With locations in both Boise and Twin Falls we have a lot of students, both past and present, but we love supporting them while they are here and keeping in contact with our students long after they leave our school.
After all, when you earn your beauty education at either of the Aveda Idaho locations, you become part of the Aveda Idaho family.
This is why, each month, we feature one of our amazing alumni, and everything they have accomplished since leaving our school.
This month we would like to introduce you to Kim Brockner an amazing entrepreneur, mother, and esthetician who followed a passion, and in turn changed her life.
It’s Never Too Late
With six children, Kim didn’t have a lot of time for herself through her younger years, and so when all of her babies were grown and had families of their own she took the leap and did something for herself.
“I’ve always loved skincare and I’ve always loved taking care of my own skin,” she says, expressing her love for the industry. “I thought ‘you are going to be old anyway so why not be an old Esthetician!” She may feel old but her time at Aveda Boise made her feel young, with an environment of fun and learning that made her education breeze by.
It can be scary to make such a huge change after so many years, but Kim embraced the opportunity head on! The students and staff at the Aveda Idaho Boise location helped her to tackle everything from the get go, all with the support she needed to get through anything that came her way.
In fact, when asked about her time at Aveda Boise, Kim proudly admits “It was a very fun and positive time in my life and I will be forever grateful!”
An Education that Sent Her Places
Kim was able to secure a job within three months after her graduation and licensure. That quick turnover gave her the opportunity to begin earning an income right away.
Since that first placement, Kim has been employed at a few salons and spas building her client books and generating an income that has truly benefited herself and her family.
The Aveda Pull
Kim has always been a rabid Aveda fan, and when she heard they were opening up an esthetics program near her she was thrilled! It made her decision of what to do even easier, and she enrolled, mastering facials and other techniques quickly in her journey toward becoming a professional.
While she will always be a huge Aveda fan, she is hopeful that more Aveda-based spas will become available in the future, so that she can continue to spread her love of Aveda products to her clients.
Through it all, Kim is proud of the journey she has made and the new career she has found.
If you are interested in pursuing a career in Aveda fueled Esthetics just like Kim, reach out to our Boise location. We would love to give you a tour and show you how an education in Aveda can change your path, too.
