Samantha Sacry, L.E.
Aesthetics Program Administrator

Samantha works directly with the students of the Aesthetics program to ensure they are supported and fully equipped with all the tools needed to graduate and become amazing estheticians. Samantha coordinates most aspects of the program, including events and internships, just to name a few.
Samantha Sacry is a Licensed Esthetician, and graduate of the School of Botanical and Medical Aesthetics. A Colorado native who grew up with a mom who taught her the ins and outs of Colorado gardening, Samantha loves getting her hands in some dirt, growing as many flowers, herbs, and vegetables she can in the Colorado growing season! An avid beekeeper, Samantha, and her husband keep upwards of 4-8 beehives. Samantha loves to travel, surf, snowboard and hug trees (especially the ones that smell like butterscotch!) When she is not coordinating the lovely Aesthetics Program at the School of Botanical and Medical Aesthetics, Samantha is encouraging radical self-care in her private skincare practice.

Hillary Hilliard
Executive Director & Founder

Hillary is the founder and executive director of this Aesthetics program, as well as both sister programs:  The Denver Integrative Massage School and the Herbalism Roots program. Hillary has been practicing Thai Yoga Massage for over twelve years and has been teaching for over a decade.  Hillary has had extensive training in Thailand, and her practice and teaching draws from her Thai Yoga Massage studies as well as her work with a local Physical Therapist.  Hillary is a Licensed Massage Therapist in Colorado, a Registered Thai Therapist, and a Registered Yoga Therapist.  Early in Hillary’s massage practice, she worked at a medical spa in Denver, that introduced her to the world of Aesthetics, Skincare, and Beauty.  In addition, Hillary is a Certified Herbalist and believes in the healing and nourishing properties of plant-based products and essential oils to soothe the skin.  The School of Botanical & Medical Aesthetics is the child of Hillary’s various interests and passions–a fusion of both worlds:  natural/botanical and medical/corrective.  Both areas are needed to ensure proper treatment of all skincare conditions.
