MaryBeth McCoy, Aesthetician
Ever since Mary Beth was a little girl, her favorite thing to do and primary goal in life has been to help people. Whether it came to school or personal life, any time there was a chance in aiding another human she was all about it. So when it came to college and making one of the most important and impacting decisions of her life, she was a little torn trying to figure out the best career choice that would be both interesting to her and beneficial to others. After two long years studying psychology and business at the University of Tennessee, Mary Beth came to the conclusion that the mainstream education route was not for her, and she moved back home to Nashville.
Throughout all of her schooling, an intense interest in beauty and skin care always remained. There was never a new trend, product or treatment that dropped on the market, that Mary Beth didn’t know about. It only took a couple months after moving home to head back to school to become an esthetician. Beauty school was a fun, lively experience of constant growth and self exploration. It was there that really solidified the already preconceived idea a profession in esthetics would be perfect for her, seeing that she would be able to not only help people but also do something she loved every day.
