Senior Care Smyrna GA - Employee Spotlight, June 2021
Reading Time: 2 minutes

In our employee spotlight for June is Alicia Schuster.

Alicia was born and raised in the Marietta/Smyrna area along with her older brother, Allen. She was a cheerleader for Campbell High School and remembers as a kid going to the salon with her mother, who is also a beautician. She began following in her mother’s footsteps when she could do the shampooing at age 12, working for tips in those days.

Alicia graduated from Chattahoochee Tech with a Master of Cosmetology license and has an Aesthetician license from the International School of Skin and Nail care. That license allows her to focus more in depth on skin care.

As a teenager, Alicia began working at Winnwood Retirement Center as a dining room server. That is when she discovered her passion for working with seniors. Her mother was Woodland Ridge’s beautician and brought on Alicia in 2008. By 2010, Alicia became our full-time beautician on her own.

Alicia is married and has 2 sweet daughters, Audrey, age 7 and Natalie, age 2. Little Audrey loves to come to Woodland Ridge with her Mom and goes and tells our residents when it is their turn to come to the beauty parlor. When talking about Woodland Ridge, Alicia says, “Serving others and making them feel better is what I love the most. Helping them relax and feel pretty.”


We love having Alicia as part of our team. She is always available to help with anything extra, like special occasions and our annual Dancing with the Senior Stars. Alicia makes all of us feel good with her positive attitude and masterful skills!
