The faculty and staff of The Elaine Sterling Institute are at the school to provide the highest quality education and a premiere experience for our students. ESI instructors are working professionals who make themselves available to teach in order to share their experience and professionalism with the next generation.

ESI students have the advantage of working with teachers who have enjoyed successful careers in esthetics, nail care, and massage therapy. Together, they bring an integrated team dedicated towards student success.
