Join me and the rest of our community in celebrating a powerful,
creative and determined woman.
Tell us about your business and how you became the successful business woman you are today.
Amy (Ouida) Morik is a native of North Jersey. She graduated from River Dell Regional High School and went on to complete her Bachelor degree in Psychology at Union College and her Masters in Social Work at New York University. Amy worked as a pediatric social worker for about 5 years before taking time to explore other opportunities and life experiences - including having 3 children of her own.
In 2009, with three young children at home, Amy needed to return to the professional arena. She then dedicated her time to her multiple social work jobs. Frustrated that she was out of the home (away from her children) more time than she had planned, Amy was looking for a Plan B.
In 2014 a friend introduced Amy to Rodan + Fields Dermatologists. With a leap of faith and some courage that pushed her out of her comfort zone, Amy accepted her friend's invitation to open up her own business - a skin care franchise with Rodan + Fields. Without realizing the life changing move she had just made, Amy was on her way to true entrepreneurship.
Amy quickly fell in love with Rodan + Fields skin care products and with the smart motivated women she was meeting through this company. Amy had vision to see that this opportunity was what she was looking for to bring her the time freedom she craved. Within one year of beginning her Rodan + Fields business venture, Amy was able to walk away from the multiple jobs that were keeping her from time with her children. She kept one social work position (Amy currently is the social worker at Theraplay, NYC - a sensory gym for preschool age children) and now dedicates the rest of her time to working her Rodan + Fields skin care business from home.
