Brenda Popovich

Brenda’s knowledge of the aesthetics industry started seven years ago as she’s always been intrigued by what it has to offer. Her first career in the aesthetics industry began four years ago as an executive assistant to one of the nations top leading medspa owners.

During her time as an executive assistant, Brenda started marketing for various medspas and furthering her previous knowledge of online sales and social media. She learned the ins and outs of owning a medspa from the backend as well as in-office during customer interaction. The benefits of knowing both sides has been a great advantage from a marketing perspective.

Her career flourished as she was constantly advancing her skills and education. She then went on to follow her dreams in aesthetics marketing and hasn’t looked back since. On her off days you’ll find her with her husband and two children, spending time outdoors and always looking for the next adventure.
