Rising Stars: Meet Robyn Kuhn

Today we’d like to introduce you to Robyn Kuhn.

Hi Robyn, we’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
I had worked in pharmaceutical/medical sales for 16 years. Ten of those were for Allergan (the makers of Botox and Juvederm) so I was calling on offices such as Dermatologists, Plastic Surgeons and medical spas. I was happy, but I wasn’t fulfilled. My older sister, Tracy and I (who also worked in the industry) had always talked about opening our own practice one day…we both just loved helping people and seeing them so happy after the treatments provided. Then, on December 1st, 2016 tragedy struck. Tracy took her own life. We were all completely devastated. I dealt with my grief, brokenness, confusion and heartache the only way I knew how…to honor her. So, on October 18th, 2017, I opened All for YOU MedSpa and it was…all for her. On December 1st, 2017 we had a grand opening celebration and donated some of our proceeds to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. The last 3.5 years have been about healing, rebuilding and helping others. I had a very specific vision and I’ve been extremely lucky that my entire staff has embraced that vision. I think we’re all motivated by the fact that Tracy is looking down on us with love and pride.

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
No, it has not been a smooth ride…at all! I had been in Corporate America my entire adult life. I had no idea how to run a business. I knew the industry very well (thank goodness) and had been privy to what typically worked and what didn’t in other practices similar to mine. I was naïve enough to think I could just apply the things that I thought made other people successful and it would make me successful, too. That didn’t happen. I have changed software, treatments, pricing, marketing efforts and so on. The most important thing, however, is that I continue to learn from all my mistakes and can be nimble and flexible since I am a young, small company.

Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
We are a medical spa so we provide treatments such as Botox, dermal filler, chemical peels, body sculpting, HydraFacials, Diamond Glow facials, IPL, brow tinting and waxing, laser hair removal and medical grade skincare.

I am proud of having the love and support of my fellow aesthetic business owners, physicians and practices in the industry. Especially Dr. Paul Rottler who serves as my medical director. I’m also very proud of my staff and the love and loyalty they have for AFY.

I’m convinced that what sets us apart is our story and how passionate everyone that works at AFY is about helping others!

We love surprises, fun facts and unexpected stories. Is there something you can share that might surprise us?
I’m a perfectionist, I’m a natural redhead, I drink one sugar-free RedBull a day, I paint my nails every single night, one of my Spa Coordinators has been my best friend for 36 years, I also own a women’s boutique, I’ve ran four full marathons, I hiked Machu Picchu and I coach my six years old daughters T-ball team!
