Employee Spotlight: Irene Perkins

Santa Barbara Day and Medical Spa Employee Spotlight: Irene Perkins

What really makes Evolutions special is our wonderful staff.  When we started Evolutions Medical Spa back in 2005 we had 5 employees.  We are now up to over 30!  They are all great people and they work very hard everyday to make your experience with Evolutions the best it can be.  We do this feature to let you know a little bit more about the people that make up the Evolutions’ team.  We highlight two employees each month.  This month we are putting the spotlight on Irene Perkins, who fills multiple roles at Evolutions, and one of our cleaning staff, Marcela Cortez.  

Employee Profile – Irene Perkins

Irene has been working with Evolutions for about 3 years now.  She wears a number of hats for us!  Her background is in accounting and human resources, and she performs both bookkeeping and HR duties for us on a part-time basis (which we really need now that we have over 30 employees).  She also plans and organizes team building events for the staff so we can all get together outside of work.  Finally, she works as a Spa Coordinator on Mondays, so that is when you are most likely to see her if you are in for an appointment.

In case you are wondering, Irene’s last name is not a coincidence.  She is married to Dr. Perkins’ nephew.  We are happy to have her as part of the family (both the Perkins family and the Evolutions family)!     

  1.   What is the most unusual or interesting job you’ve ever had (prior to Evolutions)?

I spent a few summers working for my best friend’s fruit packing company tagging the different varieties of peaches and nectarines and getting them ready for shipment.

  1.   What do you like about working at Evolutions?

I like the people I work with, the challenge of learning new things and the relaxing spa setting.

  1.   What is your preferred treatment at Evolutions to have done?

I love the Deluxe Oxygen Facial!  It’s hydrating, restorative and your skin feels firmer and glows for days.  Combine it with a Warm Oil Massage (one of the most relaxing treatments we offer) and it is pure bliss.

  1.   What is your #1 home care product sold at Evolutions?  Why? 

Luzern Force De Vie Crème Luxe.  It feels so luxurious on the skin and is a fantastic moisturizer for all skin types.  I love it and can’t live without it!

  1.   What is your favorite quote / mantra / words of wisdom?

“The most wasted of all days is one without laughter.” – e.e. cummings

  1.   What is something people would be surprised to know about you? 

I was born in El Salvador and my first language was Spanish.

  1.   What do you like to do in your free time? 

I enjoy spending time with my family, taking our 3 and 2 year old girls to the beach, sharing a yummy meal with friends, and doing anything crafty.
