Leading Ladies 2018: Laurie Neronha

Owner & Licensed Esthetician, Viriditas Beautiful Skin Therapies


Laurie Neronha is obsessed with healthy skin. “Beautiful skin is a side effect of healthy skin,” says the owner of Viriditas Beautiful Skin Therapies. “Skin wellness is more than beauty. It’s about health and self-love.” With a focus on herbal and science-based treatments, Laurie’s specialized approach heals compromised skin from the inside out.

Laurie’s impressive career began 20 years ago when she became a licensed esthetician. “I’m also obsessed with skin science,” she says, adding that becoming a certified Acne Specialist was a career game changer. A chronic acne sufferer as a teenager, Laurie understood the pain and insecurity firsthand. “It’s incredibly gratifying to help people with skin challenges like acne, and to do it in a noninvasive, drug-free way.” A regional trainer for Oncology Spa Solutions, Laurie teaches skincare professionals the specialized practice of treating oncology patients. “It’s empowering to know we improve the quality of life during such a challenging time.”

Having celebrated her tenth year in business in 2017, Laurie has big plans for this year including a space expansion, a new webinar series, and graduating from the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Business program. “I’m proud to have built a business that not only changed my life, but has changed the lives of others. It’s truly from the heart.”
