Lee Coburn

Littleton Campus

Licensed Esthetician,  Licensed Esthetics Instructor- Part Time Program

Lee’s interest in pursuing skin care started in 2002 when she started as a receptionist at a well known, local salon/spa in Tucson, Arizona. Her mother taught her at a young age to take care of her skin, but she had no idea the amount of help that she could do for others until she started working in the spa industry. She became a Licensed Esthetician in 2005. She has had the privilege of working in laser hair removal and skin rejuvenation using IPL, as well as world renowned spas such as Canyon Ranch Wellness Resort and Miraval Resort & Spa. While these were amazing experiences, she realized that being able to connect and create a relationship with a return clientele was her true passion. This is when the entrepreneur in her blossomed. In 2014, she opened her first spa suite, but life would soon take her to Denver, CO where she has made a home since late 2015. She opened her second spa suite in 2018 where she specialized in facials from basic to advanced, full body waxing, lash and brow tints/lifts, and lash extensions. 

Education in skin care piqued her interest early on her career, but she never knew how, when or if it would happen. BYSA found her and she immediately connected with their passion in elevating the industry and fully supporting their students through their journey to making Esthetics a successful and fulfilling career. She is honored and committed to share her passion of the industry with her students.

She teaches the full time, foundational program along with advanced courses including Microdermabrasion, Dermaplaning, Chemical Peel, Microneedling, and Brazilian Wax.
