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

Hi Mia Jeray’, how do you think about risk?
There is no reward without any risk involved. In my experience the greatest rewards have come when I am the MOST uncomfortable or have done something untraditional.

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 started out as a make up artist and developed a love for skin, which lead me to esthetician school. Working full time while going to school is expected to come with some challenges but prayer, determination, the support of my circle, and hard work got me through. Throughout this journey I have learned to be my true self to be successful and not what is expected. Trusting the process and not skipping any steps will get you further down the road. I am focused on providing a safe and relaxing space for my clients to feel rejuvenated and begin their journey to great skin.

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.
You can find me anywhere that has queso and margaritas! I’m always looking to try new restaurants EVERYWHERE.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
There isn’t just one person, but I have a group of family, friends, and entrepreneurs that hold me accountable! Surrounding myself with like minded and motivated people is key to MORE success.
