Over the years Shanel always knew she wanted to work in a field that she could help people feel good about themselves. She tried various paths and none of them seemed to fit exactly what she was trying to achieve. It all happened out of nowhere, one of those moments when you just know what you need to do. She was getting a facial one evening (by Kassie) and in that moment knew she needed to learn all she could about the world of esthetics. After that she enrolled in school and certificate programs. Shanel looks forward to providing her clients with various facial treatments, hair removal and lash lifts. She now knows where her skill set lies and wants to make everyone feel their best one service at a time. She can’t wait to serve the Polished Guests! When she’s not in a treatment room you can find her either trying out a new baking recipe or hiking the trails of New Hampshire.
