------| Irina's Story |------


From Law to Spa!

Irina was born in Siberia, and later moved to Krasnodar in southern Russia. She followed in her mother's footsteps and attended law school, eventually becoming a criminal defense lawyer. She practiced law for 16 years before moving to the United States. During that time, she visited her esthetician weekly so she could always present her best possible appearance in court. From these weekly visits, Irina learned unique techniques that are common only to European practices, and not normally taught in US schools.

Once in the US, Irina found she could not practice law here without starting law school from the beginning, so, she sought out a new career. She decided to become an esthetician so that she could share the unique techniques she had learned in Russia and combine them with American styles. These techniques made her the most popular student at the Academy of Aesthetic Arts, and have served her -- and her clients -- very well in her own private practice.
