We had the good fortune of connecting with Desiree Mcphail and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Desiree, what’s the most important thing you’ve done for your children?
As a mom of two beautiful children, I believe that going back to school and opening my business has taught them my determination in pursuing your dreams at any age. Showing them that if there is a will there is a way. I pray I have set a great example of an entrepreneur.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I am currently enrolled in Esthetician school and will be graduating by July 27. I will be getting my state License. I am also a certified lash artist. My growth comes with constant education and practice. But overall, it comes from the passion and love I put into my work. I love to learn and research any product or technique. Always staying updated with not just trends, but also safety protocols.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
California is such a beautiful state and there is so much versatility to be offered. I would start off with a Disneyland/ CA adventure trip, because let’s face it who doesn’t love Disney. Then I would take her to the beach Laguna Beach to be exact. We are in California and we have some of the most beautiful beaches.
And last but not least, I would take her to Hollywood because although it could be a cliche it is still a huge part of our state culture.
Along the way I would definitely take her to some of my favorite eating spots. If she is from the east coast InNOut will be a must. Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would like to recognize my family. My husband Paul Mcphail, for being on board with me and so supportive in this venture. My kids, for being so patient and understanding during those moments when mommy could not be home. My parents, for always allowing me to pursue my dreams and their help through it all. My friend Gaby Ramos for mentoring me and just being a huge support system. For always guiding me and showing me every tricks and tips along the way. My friends for all of their love and God for always keeping my head on my shoulders.
