We had the good fortune of connecting with Kristin Johnson and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Kristin, can you tell us more about your background and the role it’s played in shaping who you are today?
I was born in the Bahamas and coming from a Caribbean household I’ve always been taught to never settle. Growing up as an only girl I’ve always felt immense pressure to succeed, to be the best at everything I do. I truly appreciate that my parents bought me up with this mindset because it pushes me as a business owner. Knowing that my future is solely in my hands, motivates me!!

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I’d like to think my personality is what sets me apart from other estheticians. I’m all about starting wherever you are and moving on up. It wasn’t easy getting to where I am now and I know I still have a long way to go but putting in the work will get me there. I’ve learned that you have to be your authentic self with people. We all share energy in some form or fashion so we have to bring our true self to the table at all times. I want the world to know I’m here to help them, both women and men bring out the best in themselves!

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I’m a sucker for brunch and mimosas so we’d do brunch at Brimstone Woodfire Grill or Brio. We’d hit the shops to treat ourselves and then get dinner at RA sushi!

My mom supported me from day one, from coming in for services to pushing me to learn new techniques in my business she’s always been my biggest cheerleader.
