Brenda Schultz is the owner of The Naked Monkey, a waxing spa that she opened in October 2006. She currently has four locations in the Indianapolis area. She received her Bachelor’s degree in Biology from St-Mary-of-the-Woods College. It was here that she had the privilege of meeting and becoming friends with Stephenie Jocham, the founder of Christ Is My Big C. After graduating from St. Mary-of-the-Woods, Brenda worked in the field of clinical research. She worked at Indiana University School of Medicine for many years before joining a private research group. While she was doing research, the desire to own her own business had grown. She had researched franchises for women but never had, what she refers to as her “aha moment” that is until she received a gift certificate to a local spa and had her first facial. Captivated by the environment, she made the difficult decision to leave her current position and attend beauty school. With its immediate gratification, it didn’t take long for Brenda to develop the love of waxing and decide to make it her focus. Her goal is to take the stigma and embarrassment of body hair issues out of the shadows and into the forefront of every day conversations and acceptance. When she is not doing “monkey business,” Brenda resides in Fishers, Indiana with her very supportive husband, two amazing sons and three adorable French bulldogs.
