Maya was born and raised in Roanoke, VA. She recently moved to Grand Forks with her boyfriend, who is stationed at the Grand Forks Air Force Base. She has her B.S. in Human Development from Virginia Tech, and her M.S. in Higher Education from Florida State University. While attending school in Florida, Maya developed a skin condition that significantly impacted her quality of life. When traditional medication failed to fully control her condition, she leaned on a local aesthetician for education and care. Their services and support helped her to fall back in love with her skin, and she quickly realized she wanted to be part of others’ journeys in building confidence through education and treatments to enhance skin health.
Maya joined the team as a step toward learning more about the medical aesthetic industry, with the goal of pursuing aesthetic nursing. In her free time, you’ll find Maya exploring the city with her boyfriend, or dog sitting to get her pet fix!

Brenda Popovich
Marketing Director

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 five 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.
