Infuential Women of Los Angeles
Wendy Thorlakson Svehlak didn’t set out to revolutionize the medspa industry, but if you manage to be one of the lucky ones who gets to spend just fi ve minutes with her, you’ll understand why that’s exactly what she’s done.
As co-owner of The Aesthetics Bar, Wendy is a powerhouse of talent and authenticity. She spent the early part of her professional career as a movie and
television producer, and when her personal goals began to shift, she traded Hollywood for motherhood and entrepreneurship, founding her own jewelry business and working alongside her husband, Dr. Steven Svehlak, to create a one-of-a-kind medspa.
SHOUT OUT LA
Meet Wendy Thorlakson Svehlak | Producer & Entrepreneur
Hi Wendy, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
I used to be a filmmaker. I have been in the entertainment industry most of my life. After getting married and having a child (and having Harvey Weinstein negatively affect my career) Hollywood just wasn’t practical for me anymore. I could not make movies and a family at the same time. I took some time off to raise my little girl and help my husband occasionally with his business. My husband Dr. Steven Svehlak is a successful plastic surgeon with his own practice in Beverly Hills.
MORE TO COME!
