Every Great Journey Starts with a Single Step.
Julie’s first step was being trained and certified by renown Austrian Esthetics Collage. Austrian Esthetics
Collage started Julie’s training on human anatomy intensively, because they know the importance of
healthy skin comes from a healthy body. Once she has obtained in human anatomy, she then studied
In Austrian Esthetics Collage, skin anatomy education includes skin diseases, skin diagnosis, skin
correction, and knowledge beyond how to prevent skin disorders, how to correct, and how to
rejuvenate and protect. The training lasted three years, making her one of the most extensively trained
skin professional in the world.
Her Continuous Journey.
Julie moved to Canada 35 years ago and wanted to pursue an aesthetic career in Vancouver.
Unfortunately, aesthetics was more on the cosmetic level at the time, and her only choice was to start in
cosmetics. She chose one of the most reputable cosmetic brand to start her career, and that brand was
Clinique. Even in such a big company, Julie stood out. What made Julie different in that cosmetics
world, was her background knowledge in skin anatomy.
For 12 years, Julie stayed at Clinique excelling in her field and becoming known as the skin expert.
During at time at Clinique she had the pleasure of making new friends and training new students for
Clinique. In addition, she obtained knowledge in cosmetology.
Shortly after she Clinique, she opened Elle Derma Clinic in two locations in Burnaby, British Columbia.
This was Julie’s first time opening her own business, and it was a difficult transition for her. About 20
years ago, in Vancouver, skin care was not part of everyday life, but they were aware of the cosmetics
world. Julie was the bridge between the aesthetics world and the cosmetics world for her clients,
educating, improving and showing them results.
One of her Elle Derma Clinic locations was within Hilton Hotel. In that location, she had the pleasure of
meeting and treating clients from all over the world, and as result she was invited by a visiting Philippine
politician to perform several clinical facials for their Prime Minister in Philippines. From there, you
received invitations to Hong Kong to perform clinic facials for government delegates. Her travels then
took her to the United
Arab Emirates to train chosen aestheticians. Her teaching in UAE gave her the reputation as Skin Guru.
As a Skin Guru, she was invited to Dubai by a private investor to engage in the possibility of a joint
business venture. This allowed her the opportunity to visit many spas and clinic throughout UAE. Arriving into Abu Dhabi, she was recruited by Paris Gallery Spa Manager to offer training to their staff.
Over the next few months, she offered expertise and knowledge on the importance of regular facial and
the advantages of continual usage of products catering to specific skin type and condition.
After Julie came back to Vancouver, she was given an opportunity to move her existing clinic to one of
the most beautiful districts in Vancouver – Coal Harbour. So she did, renaming her skin center, Vie
Derma Clinic. Her new location along with her expertise gain fast momentum, attracting elite clientele,
and acquiring the name “Best Secret in Vancouver”.
Through Vie Derma Clinic, she offered innovative and effective treatments, along with a wide range of
the most prestige skin care line. Her approach is to encourage monthly clinical treatments (will
elaborate in the Prevention Chapter), as well as educating her clients to change their behavioural
patterns, choosing a more healthy lifestyle, and developing a daily preventative regime.
Julie becomes a mentor for her clients, giving them advice on needs and wants, and what will provide
them with the best results.
In 2015, Julie concentrated her knowledge and started working on creating her own skincare line, with
Vitamin C as the dominate ingredient.
