A recent college graduate and fitness class instructor, Averi is an advocate for self-care. “Whether it is a 50-minute fitness class or a 50-minute facial, I believe in the benefits of self-care” Averi says, noting self-care is also an investment in mental health. In high school, Averi blended her interest in makeup and skincare with budding entrepreneurial talent, as she did make up for proms and pageants. She appreciates the power of aesthetics to go beyond the surface and help clients replenish not only their skin but their sense of self. Watch her video here.
