RachealFront Desk

My name is Racheal, I was born and raised in San Diego and I love my hometown. Currently in school to pursue my career in Legal psychology. Working at Beauty and Body Med Lounge has really made me like the work field that the Nurse Practitioners and Esthetician have excelled in. They really take their work to heart and make sure they leave their patients satisfied. There’s no better feeling than being appreciated for the work you do on someone else. Being around this type of hard working and friendly environment since January 2016 has been a great experience, I leave work knowing a little bit more each day. I enjoy and have grown to care so much about the people I get to meet. They all have a story and while they wait in the waiting room to be seen, they open up and inform me about what they wish to achieve in their visit and are open to suggestions.
