AMBER SWARTZ,Founder

I’m an 22 year veteran in the esthetic beauty industry and am grateful to have received and continue to receive guidance from other industry leaders and mentors. I became a a registered nurse in 2008 and practiced as a pediatric nurse at TMH while maintaining my roles as both entrepreneur and esthetician. I have a deep well of experience to pull from and insight to help my guests achieve the best skin of their life. Besides an impeccable bedside manner and a collaborative approach with my guests, I bring a rare combination of skills to my facial table. This helps me see my guests, and the care of their skin holistically and creatively. I am compassionate, relentless and love digging deep when it comes to getting to the bottom of skin issues. They also call me the hair ripper with a nurses touch and I can take a brow from whomp whomp to vava boom.

MADISON,ESTHETICIAN

Hey there BEEuties! I’ve been a Tally native my whole life and love our community. I have always had a passion for skincare and started in middle school as the girl at slumber parties styling everyone’s brows. I’ve been licensed since 2011 and have cultivated a deep understanding of how to achieve healthy, glowing skin. I’ve been called a waxing queen and personally love providing silky smooth skin to all! I’m a nature lover at heart and enjoy taking backpacking trips with my husband and fur babies, however nothing beats coming home to our homestead to cuddle my chickens and tend our gardens.

Meagan,Esthetician

Hello Tallahassee! My name is Meagan, and I'm thrilled to be joining the vibrant community here as an Esthetician at Bumblebee Skincare and Waxing. Having recently relocated from the tranquil shores of St. Simons Island, I'm eager to embrace my new role and become a proud Tallahassian! My journey to this point has been a blend of passion, dedication, and a commitment to personal growth. Graduating from Valdosta State University with a bachelor's degree in Organizational Leadership laid the groundwork for my professional ethos – emphasizing teamwork, communication, and adaptability. While my academic background provided a solid foundation, my heart has always been drawn to the world of esthetics. Even before formal training, I found joy in pampering friends and family with relaxing facials – a testament to my innate passion for skincare and wellness. Transitioning from a role as a Shipping and Receiving Manager/Website Manager in a retail boutique, I learned the importance of staying grounded amidst stress and focusing on tasks one step at a time. This experience honed my organizational skills and taught me the value of effective time management, skills I'm eager to apply to my new role. As I embark on this exciting chapter in my career, I am so grateful that I have found a supportive environment where I can thrive, grow, and contribute my unique talents. I'm a firm believer in the power of teamwork and collaboration, and I'm so glad to have joined a team of like-minded individuals who share my passion for esthetics. While I may be new to the industry, I bring with me a thirst for knowledge, a willingness to learn, and a dedication to excellence. I'm committed to continuing my education, staying updated on the latest trends and techniques, and contributing fresh perspectives to our team. I'm truly excited to be part of Bumblebee and to serve the wonderful community of Tallahassee. Together, let's embark on a journey of beauty, wellness, and growth! Looking forward to meeting you all soon!

Helene,Spa Director

Hey BumbleBee Fam,
Helene Eddy = Thrilled to be part of this BeeHive!
I was born and raised here in Tallahassee and I could not wait to bust out and get some fresh perspectives. After 13 brief years, I relocated back to Tally at the tail end of 2019. I spent 4 years at the Savannah College of Art and Design. There I got a BFA in Textiles and Minored in Painting, while on a Soccer Scholarship. My murals can be viewed here in town around the Railroad Square Art District and I love to volunteer at TOPS soccer, coaching kids with disabilities.
Post SCAD, I spent 5 years in Los Angeles. There I worked at several fashion headquarters handling domestic & import design, sales, costing and production coordinations. I have always had a passion for bright fashions and conversational textiles. *Just add sparkle*
Pre- Bee I was a Middle School ESE teacher. I have a strong desire for lifting others up through Growth Mindset practices & inclusive practices for children with disabilities will forever have a huge chunk of my heart.
I am a lifelong learner, I adore all things beauty and skincare and diving deeper into the beauty realm to further serve our staff and guests, brings me much joy. It’s fulfilling to be an empowering part within each individual's skincare journey. It’s a vulnerable path that can be overwhelming. Seeking informed providers to make you feel comfortable in your current skin all the way to the skin of your dreams is crucial. Knowledge = Power.
I am an open book, love direct communication and will always strive to make sure everyone feels comfortable & appreciated. Please don’t hesitate to tell me what you’re loving, areas we have room to grow and all the in betweens. Clear is Kind.

WHAT’S IMPORTANT TO US

For us, creating a collaborative environment is vital to the makeup of BumbleBee Skincare & Waxing. We feel our work together is a two way street.  We base our work both consciously and intuitively on everything we see and hear. We enjoy educating our guests, and we are life-long learners ourselves. We form long-term relationships with our guests, often creating working relationships that last for years.

 

HOW WE WORK BEST

We are kind, creative collaborative people. We thrive when we are working together. We’re always bouncing ideas off each other, sharing cool little tricks of the trade. We like to let things progress organically with a little twist of organization. We are here to build each other up, and we love creating simple, stress free relationships creating a level of trust with each other. We are here to evoke beauty inherent in all aspects of each person who walks through our door.

 

OUR INTERACTION STYLES

Integrity is of the utmost importance to us. We are sincere and honest in the work we do, and we want that to be reflected in all your interactions with us. Clarity is crucial to ensure you receive what you’re looking for. If you are unsure of something, please keep asking. Questions are good. We love doing collaborative work and multiple opinions are always taken into consideration. Making an organic connection is always what we are seeking.  Forced relationships are never fun nor beneficial. We are here to help each other.

We want everyone to feel welcomed and like an old friend by the time you walk out of our doors. We want to create more than just you coming to your appointment.  We want you to love it, feel refreshed after, and maybe even a little healed.  We want you feeling at your best inside and out!
