Our (AMAZING!) Team
Co-Founder/School Director/Medical Esthetician/Laser Professional/Product Developer
Joanna and Ann have been best friends since way back in grade school. She came aboard in early 2007 to co-found the Skin by Ann Webb product line and help AW cope with the news of her very young son being diagnosed with cancer. Joanna sold her home in Louisiana and left everything behind to take on this new role. At that time there were no fancy job titles. It was just Ann, Callie, and Jo launching a brand in Whole Foods and Sprouts all while trying to take care of a very sick child. AW will tell anyone who is willing to listen that the Ann Webb brand would not exist without this woman in her life, who worked countless hours and treated the company as if it was her own from day one. As the brand has grown, so has the team. Joanna continues to push the company into new areas. After the successful build-up and sale of the Skin by Ann Webb product line, Joanna showed that her amazing business development skills went far beyond products. The Ann Webb Skin Institute is a growing force in the Texas esthetics education industry thanks to her remarkable ability to see what others miss. Joanna and Ann make a powerful team that goes far beyond being best friends. But that part is certainly nice too!!
Director of Admissions and Financial Aid
Sandra joined AW in 2015 when she needed a change of scenery in her work life. She was happy to find what she was looking for at the AW Skin Institute, and Joanna and Callie feel so lucky to have her helping them run the school. Sandra's caring attitude and gentle kindness make her a natural fit for us. When she's not brightening the room at AW, she can be found volunteering at local animal shelters or taking care of her own beloved dogs.
Fiscal Officer/Student Administrator/Assistant School Director
Aundrea came to us with an amazing background in customer service and management. Her fun, friendly personality made her feel like part of the family right away. Aundrea quickly moved up the ranks from Front Desk Receptionist to Assistant Spa Manager at our Clinic and now Our Assistant School Director. She was so incredible that we had to steal her away for the Institute! Now she works closely with Sandra and Joanna to make sure our students are taken care of. Her attention to detail and customer service expertise help things run more smoothly around here every day.
Medical Esthetician/Senior Laser Technician/Lead Instructor
Chamagne left behind corporate America to pursue her dream of working in Esthetics. She wasted no time in graduating from the Ann Webb Skin Institute, then immediately enrolled in the Instructor program. Having the opportunity to not only work in the skin care industry but also teach has been a bonus she was not expecting. It's a rewarding feeling to wake up and know that she is impacting the lives of our students as they embark on their new careers.

Bio coming soon! :)
Medical Esthetician/Laser Professional/Lead Instructor (Block 1)
Renee began her career as an Esthetician in 2004, starting off strong in medical Esthetics and performing laser treatments. She always dreamed of becoming an instructor one day, but actually making the jump from Esty to Instructor was difficult initially. Inspired by her favorite quote, "If it doesn't challenge you, it doesn't change you," she followed her dream and became an AW Skin Institute instructor. She is so happy that she did, because she now feels that she is exactly where she is supposed to be. It's the best thing ever to see students come full circle and leave here with so much knowledge and confidence.
Teaching has been an amazing experience for her, but also for all of us at AW Skin Institute. Renee is so passionate about teaching that we had to make her our Block One instructor. She starts all of our students off right with her kind attitude and incredible teaching ability. There is no one better to set the tone for your time here. She is professional, caring, and everything we could ask for in an instructor!
Medical Esthetician/Laser Technician/Lead Instructor (Block 2)
Tea moved to Austin from her hometown on the Texas coast. For as long as she can remember she has had a passion for beauty and skin care. She became a makeup artist in 2012 and quickly followed that up with a license in Esthetics.
Her favorite part of being an esthetician is making women feel secure and beautiful in their own skin. She loves to share her knowledge of maintaining healthy skin with her clients and anyone who will listen! :)
This passion drove her from our Clinic to our AW Skin Institute where she teaches our Block 2 Esty students. On days when she's not at the Clinic she enjoys teaching brand new skills to our students!
Medical Esthetician/Laser Technician/Lead Instructor (Block 3)
Tara began her career in the spa industry 10 years ago, starting as a sales associate and working her way up to Product Specialist for several known spas around Austin. This experience allowed her to gain an extraordinary amount of knowledge about ingredients and made her realize that she LOVED helping people. She made up her mind that she would find a way to help people even more.
It wasn't until her husband was diagnosed with skin cancer that it dawned on her: her true passion was skin care--medical skin care. From that point on Tara knew that she was meant to become an Esthetician and she has never looked back. She loves seeing results, getting clients to understand their own personal skin, and achieving her goal of helping people----every single day!
