Irina Venezia has over 25 years of experience in medical massage therapy and skin care. She initially began her study of medical massage therapy and medical skin care in the Ukraine, where she was raised by her mother and loving grandparents. Irina also earned a Bachelor’s degree in business economics while in Ukraine. She first worked at a plastic surgery and therapy clinic, before migrating to the United States in 1990 to reunite with her father who was a professional chef aboard an international ship traveling around the globe.
After settling in to her new life in America, Irina quickly recertified her Ukraine diplomas. She became certified in adult cosmetology (1997-1998). Having this license in cosmetology allowed her to realize her dream of opening her own salon in New Jersey. She next became certified in massage therapy (1998). In 2000, she became a Certified Medical Massage Practitioner of America and opened her first private practice, European Skin Care and Therapeutic Massage.
Irina’s first American work experience began with Esthetica Salon in Caesars Casino in Atlantic City as an aesthetician and massage therapist for five years.
In 2002, she entered into a business partnership and opened Still Waters Stress Center in Ocean City, New Jersey. In addition to her ownership responsibilities, Irina taught massage and trained other aestheticians.
Ms. Venezia relocated European Skin Care and Therapeutic Massage to a larger facility and also taught massage therapy at the Healing Art Institute. European Skin Care and Therapeutic Massage celebrated its twelfth year of business in 2012 and continues to be a very successful endeavor.
Irina has most recently joined Dr. Fred and his team as a medical massage therapist and aesthetician at Cornerstone Plastic Surgery and Aesthetic Medicine. Here she is able to integrate her many years of training and experience with the advanced treatments Dr. Coville offers in a truly comprehensive and holistic way.
Irina is fluent in Russian, Ukrainian, Polish, and English. She values her family and lives in Mays Landing with her 15 year old son, who is a sophomore in high school and enjoys playing basketball and baseball. She is also very close to her older sister, who is also an aesthetician. As little girls they always dreamed about having their own business and helping other people. Here in the U.S., their dreams have come true!
