It is this type of triumph that Price wants to share with other women who are struggling to make their way in business, which is why she is active in her community through business organizations and events. “I want to offer young women a positive role model and be a cheerleader. I want to motivate,” she says. And all of this community involvement is good for her business, too, where Price offers customized skin care treatments to her clients based on an initial 90-minute appointment. “Clients come in and fill out a form with information about how they live and care for their skin, and I talk with them and create a service right then for them,” she explains. Along with creating her own formulas using different essential oils, herbs, muds and clays, Price also uses Repêchage, Banyan Botanicals and Lindi Skin products, which are specially made for clients with cancer. “Sometimes I just do a consultation and recommend different things clients with cancer can do at home; other times, I will do a special gentle facial to calm and nourish their skin, and send them home not only feeling better, but also knowing how to help themselves,” she says.
Growth is always something 52-year-old Price embraces in her life, as evidenced in the recent completion of her first triathlon. “I’ve always moved and grooved and loved being outside. The triathlon helped me meditate and care for myself and be strong,” she explains. This mission of caring for herself is something she wants to encourage others to do, as well. “We are all connected to each other and to Earth. Women feel like they have to live up to so many expectations, but they just need to be who they are.” And it is this message Price wants to share with others, and does so by bringing bright optimism to her clients and other professionals in her community and beyond.
