Vicky H. Lester, BS, MA, Ed.D
Dr. Lester is our amazing best friend, manager, and inspirational leader. Her educational and leadership background/skills have proven over and over again to be our biggest asset.
A common phrase coined many years ago is that she isn’t just the owner of Eternal Youth Medical Spa, she is our first client.
Dr. Lester “Vicky” has an extraordinary background. She has two Bachelors Degrees. One in Elementary Education (k-8) and a second in Special Education (K-12), two Masters Degrees, one in Learning Disorders and another in Educational Administration and most recently earned a Doctorate Degree in Educational Leadership. She recently retired from education after 25 years of impeccable leadership and service. She was promoted from the classroom to become one of our state’s preeminent educational role models, first as a vice-principal, then a Principal for several public schools. She was recognized as one of only two educators that won The National Milken Award for Excellence in Education in 1996 for Educational Leadership.
Vicky was a President of a Parent Teacher Association and a National Trainer in Standards and Data. She was the founder of the Sierra Vista Civitan Club and a Liaison for the Civil Air Patrol Cadet Program. Vicky was a facilitator for Talented Youth with Johns Hopkins University Center for Talented Youth and a trainer for non-violent communication education.
But most importantly, Vicky was a champion for children.
In the medical spa world, she has become certified in Lumenis LightSheer Laser Hair Removal, Lume One IPL and Fraxel, (fractional non-ablative lasers). On July 26, she will be certified on our newest and most exciting service, The Zeltiq CoolScuplting machine that does body contouring.
We are very proud and lucky to have Vicky as our owner and manager.
Michelle Marquez was born and raised in Gallup, NM. She moved to Albuquerque in 2000. She married her high school sweetheart and they have two beautiful girls. Michelle became an aesthetician because of her family. Acne is hereditary in her family and she grew up with severe acne. As she says, “So I know first hand the affects that acne can have on a persons self esteem, especially in their teens. I don’t want my own children going through what I did in high school. To this day, I struggle with my complexion, not only with acne but with scarring due to acne, as well as, large pores, hyper-pigmentation, and fine lines. I never realized the damage the environment can have on your skin especially the sun. I decided that I truly wanted to take care of my skin so I re-turned to school to help my self and others with skin problems. I graduated from Callas Beauty Institute in Rio Rancho as an aesthetician/nail tech. A month later I took my boards and officially was licensed. I have been licensed for two years and have been with Eternal Youth Medical Spa for over a year.” Michelle has continued her education and is now certified in microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and laser hair removal. Her attitude towards skincare? “I believe that education, prevention, and maintenance are key elements toward proper skincare. I also believe that skincare is not a luxury, it is a part of being healthy, and when your skin is healthy you are happy.”
“Hair Removal! Who needs hair removal? Not me.”
