Sonia’s entrepreneurial journey is a tale of inspiration and determination. Her decision to establish “Body Sculpting By Simone,” a MedSpa, was driven by a heartfelt desire to retire from her role as a bedside nurse and explore new horizons. In this interview, Sonia sheds light on the world of body sculpting and contouring, demystifying these transformative processes for those unfamiliar with them. Her passion for beauty and aesthetics, coupled with a determination for personal growth, led her into an industry where nurses like her are a rare presence.
