It is a rare occasion that you hear an individual exclaim their love for their career in the way Thelma Carole Edwards, a 22–year industry veteran and owner of Edwards’ Wellness & Skin Care in Wilmington, Delaware, does.
If circumstances allowed for it ... “I would do the treatments for free, that’s how much I love it,” explains Edwards. The past several years have been challenging for most, including Edwards. “It’s been difficult with the economy, and I do believe that if I did not have the love of the business when I hit some rocky roads, I would not have been able to stay with it,” she says. “But because I love every moment of it, when I do hit the rocky roads … it’s worth it.”
Edwards received her esthetics license from Venus Beauty Academy in Pennsylvania in October 1991, her massage license from the Dawn Career Institute in Wilmington, Delaware, in December 1999, and her nail technician license from South Philadelphia Beauty Academy in Philadelphia in April 1994.
