Patience stumbled on her career as a skin care professional in 2000 almost by accident when she decided to pursue an esthetics course prior to becoming a licensed massage therapist. And thence began her love affair with the field of esthetics. Patience discovered that helping people look their best by addressing their skin concerns was as therapeutic for her as it was for the string of happy customers that availed her services.
Patience was off to a good start in her career as she found herself under the tutelage of the accomplished esthetician and owner of Sensibilities Natural Body Care and Day Spa located in Asheville, NC. It was there that Patience learnt the ropes of this new business and the training clearly paid off as in 2010, just prior to leaving Asheville to return to Florida, Patience was recognized by the Mountain Express as Best Esthetician.
Nearing two decades in this field, Patience remains dedicated to her craft and committed to education. In addition, through her relationship with Eminence she has achieved the highest level of certification in Hungarian Massage Techniques under the guidance of Eminence Master Trainer, Boldijarre Koronczy and his excellent staff of trainers.
When she is not playing fairy godmother to her ever-expanding clientele, Patience enjoys being outdoors, organic cooking, and traveling. Love what you do –Provide relaxing treatments – Deliver results. These are the principles by which Patience A. Pecoraro, L.E. serves her profession every day.
