About Beauty in Boise

Karen at Beauty in Boise

I feel so honored and proud to be a part of Beauty in Boise, which I was fortunate enough to join in November 2017. I began seeing Marti as a client back in 2016 and immediately became aware that I was in very good hands, and from that first appointment I was hooked. I began seeing Marti for both lash and skin care services every couple of weeks, and the more I saw her, the more interested I became in the process. The things we can do to our skin absolutely fascinate me; learning about the multiple treatment options and product options that result in younger, healthier, clear skin, are a passion and an obsession of mine that, is a dream to now be able to do for a living. It took seeing Marti for several months and hearing her story to make me realize that this was more than just an interest, this was something I wanted to do permanently as a career. 


I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Retail Merchandising from Lindenwood University out of St. Louis, Missouri which is where I’m originally from. My professional background is primarily in sales, retail, marketing and product development, so having that business background helped tremendously through my esthetics schooling. When Marti and I realized me joining her team could be a reality, I had no reservations and enrolled in an Esthetics program as soon as I could. I spent the summer and fall interning with and shadowing Marti while simultaneously completing my esthetics education program. I am now a Licensed Esthetician with certifications in: Elleebana Lash Lift, Dermaplaning, Microdermabrasion, Chemical Peels, and am a Face Reality Acne Specialist, with Microneedling certification coming soon. 


There is an infinite amount of information and education that exists related to skin care, and I am constantly continuing to educate myself and learn as much as I can to provide the best professional service that I can. Starting this new chapter of my life was a risk that has more than paid off. All women deserve to look and feel their best, and now I’m working in an industry where I get to help make that a reality. At Beauty in Boise, education, service, and what’s in your best interest are our priorities, and I cannot express enough the excitement it brings me to be a part of such an inspiring, truly caring business.
