"Be curious about your passions, practice self-empathy, and embrace what makes you different in order to be involved in your own evolution."
Claudia founded the award-winning beauty oasis Aqua skin and nail care and is currently ready to launch her new venture, Estetica Mia, in June. Estetica Mia will be a beauty retreat for professional facial and nail care services. They will pamper their clients with a luxurious beauty experience and leave them feeling like their best, most beautiful selves. Claudia offers a collaborative work environment that allows passionate people to work toward a shared vision of elevating the way spa professionals are seen and treated. She will continue to offer her employees a team-based pay compensation system that allows them to share in the company’s profits through a unique business model implemented by Claudia at Aqua in 2016. She has a B.A. in International Business Management from Franklin College Switzerland. When not sharing her expertise on creating peaceful and collaborative work environments you can find her relaxing at home in Santa Barbara, CA. with her husband Mark Rucker and their two fur babies Luna Bean and Dixie Pop.
