VICKY ST JOHN

Mint Supervisor, Vicky, is a total animal lover known as ‘Dr. Doolittle’ as a child. She is obsessed with her dog, Hendrix, a keeshond pup. With over 10 years’ experience, Vicky says that therapists can be underestimated by people who don’t know the industry. “This job can be very technical and we use a lot of science but I don’t think the extent of what we know is widely known. I love advanced skincare treatments and the amazing results and the change that can be achieved in my clients’ skin. The best thing is seeing how happy and confident they feel with their skin results.”

Staff Superpower: Vicky ties the team together like glue. She makes an amazing team feel like family. She is the perfect role model for her team.
