Skin health has fascinated Tiffany Albert for as far back as she can remember. The owner of Fusion Spa in New York City, Albert grew up in Austin, Texas, and spent many of her childhood days collecting ingredients from her mother’s garden to add to her own concoctions. “I would crush up fruits and rose petals to see how they mixed together,” she says. “I was always reading the ingredients on the backs of shampoo and lotion bottles to learn their properties. It was just so interesting to me.”

Albert discovered more about health as she got older, going to Austin Community College to study health sciences and nursing. “I never really realized there was a career just in skin care,” she says, and it wasn’t until she moved to New York with her boyfriend in 1997 that she really caught onto her passion.

“I stopped by a local skin care salon and spa to buy some products, and I started talking with the owner,” Albert recalls. “I asked her, ‘How do you study for this?’ and she told me about a school named Atelier Esthétique Institute of Esthetics in New York City. Within the week, I was enrolled and I just loved every moment.” Incorporating the skills of her health care background with the newfound elements of esthetics, Albert had found her true calling.
