Retail Store Manager

I love Bloom for the inclusiveness. No one is ever felt like an outsider here. My coworkers make everyday a great day because everyone is so supportive and we all believe in our mission. Working in the retail store let’s me interact with the public and to also see the transformation of clients’ whole attitude when they are finished with their appointments. We offer the community the opportunity to feel confident in their own skin which is something I think every person should feel. I am so proud that Bloom has thrived for 20 years and it is all thanks to a wonderful caring community, let’s keep thriving!
