Esthetician, Networker, and Lady Boss - Alysa Christianson

Welcome back or welcome to my blog!

I am so excited to introduce this weeks guest blogger Alysa Christianson! She is an esthetician originally from Grand Forks, ND. She currently works at Mangata Medical Spa in Grand Forks. Today she will be going over a little bit about her, what got her into aesthetics, and what she does now!

Aly and her coworkers!

Hello audience, I am a determined, hardworking, kind hearted, go getter. My name is Alysa Christianson. I love to be on the go and spontaneous. If I'm not working or working out, you can find me with friends and family! I am currently a Medical Aesthetician at Mangata Medical Spa in Grand Forks, North Dakota. I love seeing new and familiar faces, so don't be shy to meet me! Helping people achieve their skin goals empowers me to keep doing what I do. Hearing people's confidence continue to grow, makes my heart warm!

I work with many different services varying from different HydraFacials, Peels, dermaplaning, basic facials, etc. My interest in skin started back in 2020. Growing up I’ve been blessed with amazingly clear skin, many would ask what I did. Truth was, nothing, I did nothing! October 2020, I got diagnosed with Melanoma on the back of my left arm. I had it removed and was cancer free until December 2021. I spotted a spot on my upper right knee. I scheduled a Dermatologist appointment, they then sent my biopsy in and received the results of Melanoma two weeks later. It was then cleared after surgery.

Lady Boss Alysa Christianson!

During 2021 I enrolled into a Community College, thinking Dermatology would be my spark. The schooling wasn’t for me, I wasn’t understanding much of anything. I was also still unsure if that's what I was wanting. I unrolled a month after starting and took a break, so I could figure out my path. Covid-19 was going on while I was a senior in high school and starting out college, so life was taking different turns for everyone. I saw a Hydrafacial opening at Mangata, so I booked it! Soon after I went to experience a Hydrafacial, along with asking questions and seeing the route the Esthetician went to get to where she was. I left and called my mom crying saying “Mom I want to enroll into Esthetics!”

Soon I moved to Fargo, North Dakota and enrolled into The Salon Professional Academy to become an Esthetician. It's a very short program, about 5 months being a full time student. I graduated February 2022, after I moved back home and reached out to the Aesthetician at Mangata to see if they were hiring. Lucky for me she said to apply, I then got accepted on to the most heartwarming team!

I know my value as an employee, and my work environment is amazing. I could never ask to be anywhere else!
