Right off the bat, I knew Penrose would train me to be the best professional I could be. I knew from their high-end product lines and relationship with Bumble and bumble that I would be getting the best training out there. The focus on business and culture was also really important to me; that would be my edge when looking for a job.
Overcoming Melanoma Inspired Esthetics and Laser Graduate Rachel Long to Educate People About Their Skin and Skincare
Rachel overcame many challenges in order to complete her Esthetics and Laser programs at Penrose Academy. At age 18 she battled melanoma, which inspired her to educate people about the health and wellness of their skin.
From there, Rachel worked 3 jobs and moved back home with her parents and baby brother to pay off her previous loans from NAU, all while attending school. She graduated with top grades and has since developed a fruitful career thanks to her training at Penrose Academy, and her determination to be successful.
When asked about how Penrose helped her achieve her goals Rachel said, “I learned so many valuable things at Penrose that I’ve applied in the field and to other areas of my life. I think what stands out the most is something Jill always said, “get comfortable being uncomfortable”. Oh man is that the truth!”
