Once a certified nursing assistant in California, Jas Sahota's move to Canada was truly transformative. Not only did she find a new city to call home, but she also discovered a new calling. Initially a client at Surrey's Beautiful Canadian Laser & Skincare clinic, Jas was inspired by clinic owner Dr. Shah to consider a career in Esthetics. 8 years later, Jas, a graduate of our Esthetics program, is still a fixture at Dr. Shah's clinic—only now she's the face behind the laser.
