Hear What Our Alumni Have to Say
When I went to look for schools, I realized Christine Valmy was the person who brought esthetics to the U.S. I thought to myself, why would I go anywhere else? I went for a tour and I got butterflies in my stomach. I realized this was my calling. I cannot express the education that I received at CV, and how I feel it is a superior education after now being in the field. I am now a very successful Skincare Specialist, and I absolutely made the perfect choice by being educated for success at Christine Valmy!
Christine Valmy really prepares their students for the State Board Exams. Ms. Micky is an amazing makeup instructor, Ms. Kim wakes your brain up (I love her), Ms. Anna is passionate and gives real life tips, and everyone loves Mr. Yan. What they taught me helped me gain quality experience faster. Thank you all for the great experience and for pushing the boundaries to get my honors diploma.
