Sharon Rauh | RN, BSN

Sharon Lyda Rauh’s vision began when she was a young girl of 10 as she observed her mother’s daily transformation from an ordinary housewife into an elegant, sophisticated woman. Sharon was fascinated with her mother’s sense of style. She felt in some way destined to carry on her mother’s desire and appreciation for artistic elegance.

Sharon’s mother, Adriana, was born in Florence, Italy, the epicenter of classic art and beauty. Family ties in Italy gave Sharon many opportunities to travel abroad where she developed a keen awareness of the beautiful people who traversed the historic streets and byways of Europe .

Every face, be it young, old, male or female, became an art pallet to Sharon. Her modeling interest led to even more exposure to the world of fashion and beauty. As a buyer of designer clothing for a multi-state department store, she developed a versatile knowledge of design, quality and style. Although she enjoyed her work as a clothing buyer, her love of family and travel led her into a career as a flight attendant. Her career with American Airlines spanned over twenty years. During her service to the airline, Sharon observed the detrimental effect constant atmospheric change had on skin. When time permitted, she made it a priority to schedule skincare treatments in many of her favorite destinations including Paris, Rome, Munich and New York.

Sharon’s commitment to her skin helped her vision become even more clear—she wanted to focus on skin health and beauty. She earned a degree as a Registered Nurse while continuing to work as a flight attendant. Her nursing education enhanced her knowledge of skin, and its care, allowing the information gained from renowned skin care experts all around the globe to develop into her own approach to achieving and maintaining beautiful skin. Sharon’s friends and family were interested in her skin care regimen, always asking her to share her knowledge of the importance of healthy skin.

Sharon devoted hours of research to selecting medical grade products to use in her private skincare studio. Encore Aesthetics opened in 2016 as a small studio and has grown into a partnership with another medical aesthetician. Encore Aesthetics provides skin health and wellness through a combination of medical grade treatments and therapeutic massage.

Sharon has one son, Gianluca, an engineering graduate of UAB in Birmingham, Alabama. She is an avid animal lover and enjoys obedience training with her German Shepherd, Nick. She owns and enjoys quarter horses and miniature horses at her nearby farm.
