Elisa Botros, Founder and President of Academy Roselisa, started working in the beauty industry in 2001. Driven by a desire to help empower woman to be the best version of themselves, she took a training in 2009 to become a certified lash technician. It was then that she was offered a job working for a renowned plastic surgeon in New York. In her time there, she offered eyelash extension services, Endermologie treatments and various laser treatments. After almost 5 years of working in a busy New York treatment center, Elisa missed her home and family and decided to return to her hometown of Montreal. She always knew that she wanted to continue her work, but to take it in a new direction.
Growing up with a single-parent, she always felt compassion towards hard-working women. She knew she wanted to start something to empower women to start their own business and make extra money to raise their children and start new lives for themselves. Her initial goal was to start a training program teaching woman how to apply Eyelash Extensions. In a rapidly growing industry, it quickly became apparent to her that distributing the products was going to be an equally important part of what is now Roselisa Academy. Elisa works closely with her students as well as the distributors to coach and mentor them in reaching and exceeding their goals.
Today, Roselisa Academy is a reflection of Elisa’s personal beliefs. It is a place where women come to grow and start something new for themselves. Being very close to her family, it was only a natural decision to have her mom involved in her business. Ginette Bergeron, now retired, works part time helping with various aspects of the business with her focus being customer satisfaction.
Elisa, who married in May of 2017, also welcomed her husband at the Academy. She is excited to have him working alongside her full time to help develop the business outside of the Canadian Market.
Valerie has always been a kind, compassionate person who always wanted to help those around her. Born in Quebec, she travelled to Toronto to learn how to speak English. It is there that the entrepreneur in her decided to open her own business taking care of dogs. She had her own dog grooming business and even started her own line of home baked dog treats. When life brought her back to Quebec, she wanted to start a new business and the lash world truly interested her. She loved helping women look and feel their best. From there, more trainings followed. She is now a certified nail technician and permanent makeup artist. After meeting the people at the Academy and falling in love with our products, she knew she wanted to be part of this growing family. That is how Roselisa Academy Drummondville came to be. Valerie loves giving trainings and distributing for the Academy. Her goal is to continue growing her current location and possibly offer more services to her customers. When she is not at the Academy, she is spending time with her son.
Tina’s dream to work in the beauty industry started at a young age. She knew that as soon as she finished high school, she would go straight to hair dressing school. Tina is known within the Roselisa Family to be a busy body, so it is no surprise that she couldn’t just stop at learning hairdressing. From there she took many other courses, but it is only when she took her Microblading course that she discovered her true passion. She fell in love with the service and has made that her main focus. Tina travels weekly to train students in Microblading across Quebec. She made the leap and became a distributor for Academy Roselisa when she opened the Gatineau location. Tina is a hard-working, passionate entrepreneur who strives to continually improve the customer experience by offering amazing service to her customers and her students.
