The instructor Trish Knight is very knowledgeable and will guide you through every step of the way. I love the intimacy of the smaller class environment, this also allows for more hands-on learning which is crucial in the field of aesthetics. I am leaving this program with the greatest feeling of accomplishment and confidence. I strongly recommend Jacksonville ELSA to anyone seriously considering a career in aesthetics!
