Harlem Skin & Laser Clinic
George Jordan, Operations Manager
Skin care and beauty expert Seven Brown established Harlem Skin & Laser Clinic in 2010 to provide Harlem with clinical facials, chemical peels, skin rejuvenation, hair removal, targeted treatments and other skin related services through a holistic direct service model. HireHarlem.com sat down with Harlem Skin & Laser Clinic Operations Manager, George Jordan, to learn more about the organization's community service efforts and roots in Harlem.
HH: What is the Mission of Harlem Skin & Laser Clinic?
GJ: Our mission is to make skin beautiful and share the practice of mindful beauty while providing remarkable service – one guest at a time. As a Harlem based clinic that serves black and brown communities, we are able to address unmet esthetic health needs specific to the melanin in our skin. We want our clinic to be a serene and quiet place that is serviceable to the client, clean and comfortable.
HH: What does it mean to be a part of the Harlem community?
GJ: Harlem is a community of people who reach out and support each other. After working here for the first year I was genuinely shocked at how often community members share resources and offer referrals for other business owners. The businesses in this community really communicate with one another and that synergy is what makes this community unique.
HH: How does Harlem Skin & Laser give back to the community?
