Fun Fact, the spa started in my one bedroom apartment in Tampa, Florida. When I graduated from beauty school in 2010, I actually turned my dining room area into my treatment room. At the time, I was working full time with Hillsborough County Clerk of the Circuit Court (where I worked as a courtroom clerk). As the business continued to blossom and flourish, it was time for me to take a leap of faith - I took a chance on myself, my passion, and my dream.

Meet Luxury Lotus Spa Owner - Esther The Esthetician Nelson
Hi there, Welcome!! It's Esther The Esthetician here.
I'm passionate about what I do as a skincare professional. I'm an island girl who can not sing or dance (I just haven't heard the right tune) lol.
I'm a middlevert (half introvert & extrovert), I am a bit awkward and nerdy at times, I'm full of positive energy.
Equally important, I love dolphins and art.
In the same way, here are some of my favorite things:
I'm naturally a good vibes only type of person. Therefore, I enjoy being around people with positive energy/attitude.
Equally, being near water is extremely relaxing & soothing for my mind, body, and spirit. For this reason, I'm a strong believer in whatever you think and/or surround yourself with, you become...
Therefore, I surround myself with things that keeps me calm and at peace.
I love being an esthetician as much as I love learning about skin care, product formulation and anything relating to beauty and business.
I've found a way to connect a few of my favourite things into one.
Therefore, I travel often to attend live classes, seminars, and trade shows. Continued education is extremely important to me.

Furthermore, I had the opportunity of working closely with, public, court reporters, clerks, judges, attorneys, police officers, sheriff deputies, and various government personnel & agencies.
In my previous role, I have created, managed, and maintained Legal records, court files, minutes, calendars, and dockets while attending court proceedings. I also tracked and maintained stats, docket records, and diary of transactions.
I developed and fostered long-lasting business relationships with government officials, other employees, and the public through excellent communication. I have experience working in Traffic, Misdemeanor, and Felony court throughout my 10 years with the company.
I enjoyed my past jobs, however, because I wanted to pursue the love and passion I have for skincare and the beauty industry, I knew it was time for me to take a leap of faith to start my business.
My past jobs and life experience has played a huge in my self awareness journey. I strive to help my clients enjoy the ride - on their journey to becoming the beset version of themselves.
My Janelle Monae, Beyonce, and Chloe and Halle summer Experience!
Undoubtedly, summer 2018 was full of surprises for me!! For instance, I went to my first-ever live concert in 2018 (at the age of 31!!). Of course, that summer, I ended up meeting and taking a picture with Janelle Monae In St. Pete, Florida (FL) - which I have hanging in the skincare boutique lobby (proudly lol).
Of course, you will definitely see it when you come in :-)
Love for learning + Determination to be the best esthetician = The reason why I wake up at 4 am every day (7 days per week) to study for 2 hours. It's also why I dedicate 4 hours every Sunday to learn and grow. I strive to always bring my A-Game for you. Below, you will see some of the advance education classes, seminars, and training I've completed... I promise to never stop learning.

Why I started Luxury Lotus Spa
Luxury Lotus Spa started purely by accident... because of my own personal struggles dealing with acne, acne scars, post-acne scarring/brown spot, strawberry/chicken/ingrown hair...
I was a mess lol. Back then, I had low self-esteem and I was self-conscious about everything!! Equally, I did not think very highly of myself. Because of my constant worry/fear - I was the worst kind of introvert!
Fast forward to today, I love myself just the way I am. In the same way, I strive to help my clients reach their goals. I want to help my clients look and feel confident and beautiful, both inside and out. I would absolutely love the opportunity to help you reach your skincare goals in the next 6-12 months (Depending on where you are now).
