The Beauty of Change
Career Wellness is a value that Shanina embraces. Through her work, she encourages wellness and self care from within.
Right now, can you make an unconditional relationship with yourself – just at the height you are, the weight you are, with the intelligence that you have, and your current burden of pain – can you enter into an unconditional relationship with that?”
Shanina always wanted to pursue a career in makeup and skincare but was persuaded to pursue my degrees first. Since earning her degrees, she circled back to her first love and career passion: make up and skincare. Our skin changes over time. As we grow, changes in our skin and life events can have us to look at ourselves differently (mind, body and spirit). All of these changes require special attention. The Beauty of Change is how we respond to it.
