Megan Blood-Maruyama ‘16, Certified Esthetician and Laser Technician

Megan Blood-Maryama ‘16, recently became a licensed esthetician and certified laser technician in Colorado. She attended the College of International Esthetics and fell in love with laser at school.

“When I was in esthetics school we learned laser and I was so interested and fascinated by it and I just knew this was what I really wanted to do after I got my license,” said Megan. “Now I have a job that I enjoy and it doesn’t even really feel like work. The clients are awesome and I am learning so much every day. I am grateful for the support my team offers me as well.”

While attending Denver Academy, Megan learned that she is a hands-on and visual learner and this knowledge has helped her become successful in her job and in her life.

“DA helped me gain confidence in myself and taught me that I am my biggest advocate. No dream is too big if you want it enough. If you work hard enough you can achieve anything!” Said Megan.

Megan especially liked the small class sizes at DA and that the teachers taught her the way she learned best.

Mr. Mark Wood, one of Megan’s favorite DA teachers said, “ Like some of our students, Megan's path was filled with obstacles. I'm so proud of how far she's come and the incredible amount of determination, grit and drive it has taken to get to where she's at. I couldn't be more proud of her accomplishments and the woman and mother she's become.”

We are so excited for Megan and all she has accomplished since graduating from DA three years ago. Go Mustang!
