Today we’d like to introduce you to Juli-Ann Nerida.
Juli-Ann, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
For the love of beauty and fashion, it all started with coloring my hair, makeup and 90’s clothing in Middle School! It was a lifestyle that continues to grow with me but was never thought to be a career path. My career goals were to either go to art school and/or become an elementary teacher. Although I did not reach these specific goals, I did become an Early Childhood Montessori Teacher at a local preschool near my hometown for 12 years.
I loved everything about my job, but always had another dream to pursue the beauty industry in the back of my mind. Halfway into my teaching career, I finally took a step towards that dream and toured and applied to a popular beauty school. Unfortunately, timing just wasn’t right. I had anxiety from the thoughts of student loans and debit, parenthood and a promotion opportunity.
12 years later, after reaching the glass celling in my career as a mentor teacher, I started to feel unfulfilled. I then made a spontaneous decision to follow through with beauty school without thinking twice! My mind was going 100 miles per hour and didn’t want to stop for a second and wanted to dedicate my time to finishing school in a timely manner. So I decided to put in my resignation after 12 years and attend beauty school full-time! This was and continues to be the hardest transition in my life! From studying and being there for my family full-time to working part-time to stay afloat with bills.
Although every moment was hard and pliantly of scarifies were made, I was determined to create a brand to educate others of their skincare health while helping to reach a realistic goal for their skin. During the process, my mentors were inspired by my dedication to my craft, while having making a positive impact with my peers, they encouraged me to apply for an assisting educator position at the beauty academy. After graduating and receiving my Esthetician License, I was hired at Bellus Academy as an Esthetics Teaching Assistant, while I start building my brand! Fast forward, I continue to teach our future esthetician’s in the most rewarded beauty and wellness institutions in the country while running my own Esthetics practice nearby!
There are so many people I’d like to appreciate for being there throughout my journey. Although with the continued help of my parents and in-laws, my husband and daughter, my close friends, former coworkers and my business mentor, I would not be where I am today without their love and support!
Has it been a smooth road?
After leaving a well established full-time career, my routine and lifestyle was flipped outside down! I no longer had the stable income nor the time to follow through with my normal routine. While in school full-time, I did not have the time to meal prep or splurge at my favorite department store and make thoughtful consideration to what we need vs what we wanted.
My priorities were now more simpler; like cooking bigger meals that can last longer, helping my husband by paying for utilities that I could afford with my part-time job and cutting out everything else like cable, shopping light and cutting down our usual leisure.
I am now a stay-at-home mom, which I never wanted to be. I loved working and being out-and-about. That in itself and being a new small business owner is a lifestyle I wasn’t use to and continue to experience both triumphs and obstacles.

Let’s touch on your thoughts about our city – what do you like the most and least?
San Diego has been my home for more than 30 years, my whole family is here and this is where we will stay. San Diego is comfortable yet active.
