Faith Simmons completed her associate degree at Columbia Gorge Community College in 2019. During her community college years, she started her classes at Gorge Academy of Cosmetology, where she completed her cosmetology requirements so she could test for her state licenses. Along the way, she took classes outside of the Gorge Academy of Cosmetology for additional certifications in things she would love to do, like cosmetic tattooing. She received her cosmetology license in 2020. She wanted to continue her education, and this led her to the Aesthetics Institute, where she completed her master and advanced esthetics programs and she learned to work with enzymes, micro-current, photo-light therapy, and lasers, just to name a few. Allowing her to receive her advanced esthetician's license in 2023. Following her advanced esthetician's school, Faith studied at Trillium Ink, where she completed the state requirements to test for her cosmetic tattoo license.

Faith believes how you feel about yourself affects you in many different ways, one of them being your skin. Faith wants to help people feel happier in their own skin. Working at Wu Wei Wellness allows her to combine esthetics and cosmetic/paramedical tattooing to bring out the natural beauty within. Whether you are coming to just relax or you're coming for a specific purpose, she wants to be the safe space to be the best you.
Before getting into this industry, Faith worked as a veterinary technician. When looking into this industry, Faith tried to find a way to help people while doing what she loves, and that is when her passion started for her to be an advanced esthetician and paramedical tattoo artist. She wants to work her way up to being skilled enough to help individuals that have gone through an experience that left some scarring or other permanent damage on the skin.
Faith was raised in Washington most of her life and came to Portland a lot to visit her grandparents, so her roots have been in this area all of her life. One thing you will learn about her is that she loves animals. She will talk your ear off about sugar gliders because they are her favorite animal. If she is not working, you will find her spending time with them or her family. If she is being lazy, she loves to watch Bones or Big Bang Theory.
