We had the good fortune of connecting with Brie Marie and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Brie, what is the most important factor behind your success?
I think being true to who you are plays a huge role in the success of any business. There will always be competition, but no one can replicate you. I’ve found being genuine with my clients has allowed me to build friendships and has made my work so much more rewarding.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
PASH Skin was founded in 2012 on the concept of quality skincare. I wanted to make women feel beautiful. I decided I would invest in some of the top treatments available in this industry, and I’m so happy that I did. The small business journey has not been easy, but it’s definitely been worth it. I now have an incredible assistant Jordan, who has the same vision, and desire to help women feel their best. When women feel pretty, and confident in themselves, I know I have done a small part in that.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
We live in Americas Finest City, and not even a week would give me enough time to show off. Over the course of 9+ years in the beauty industry I have met women from all walks of life, from the military to service industry, to athletes, and mommies like me. I always ask where I need to go on my next date night with my husband, good hiking trails, or even a great staycation spot. The restaurants in San Diego are AMAZING. Some of my favourite places to eat include Ironside, Born & Raised, George’s at the Cove, Puesto, and even a drive to get a slice of Julian apple pie. You cant go wrong heading over the Coronado bridge, and staying a night at the Del, hiking Torrey Pines, a fun day at the races, and checking out Balboa Park. What a beautiful city we live in!

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
Absolutely! I had the privilege of going to beauty school with some girls who little did I know would become life long friends. It has been through their support and like mindedness of also running their own beauty business that I have found immense amounts of support and encouragement. Thank you Reagan of @refinedartistry , Haley of @spafx and Brittany from @bare_by_b . I wouldn’t have made it this far without you 3!
