This week's Badass Chick is Nichole Starr, owner of Skin Deep Med Spa on Newbury Street. On top of being an incredibly successful business owner for the last 15+ years, Nichole is a philanthropist who donates her time and money to the Ellie Fund in hopes of easing the challenges of breast cancer patients. 

 

Nichole was a nurse but knew she didn't want to work in a hospital, so she decided to work with a celebrity dermatologist. After about two years, she decided she wanted to open up her own shop. So she literally sold everything she had except for her mattress and her laptop, moved into a studio apartment in Boston and got to work. Fifteen years later, she's thriving and has spent the last eight years working with the Ellie Fund to support women undergoing breast cancer treatment. Nichole has been recognized as the largest donor to the organization, donating ten of thousands of dollars each year, and she also offers free treatments to Ellie's breast cancer patients. 

 

Nichole's mastered the art of hustling to follow her passion while also giving back to women who need a bit of a boost in a very challenging time. What's more badass than that?
