2019 Gold Probe Award Winner is Vickie Widmyer, CPE, OCE
While the Ballet Gold Probe Award is sponsored by Synoptic Products and Ballet Technologies, the selection of the winner is done solely by the Executive Board of the American Electrology Association.
The Ballet Gold Probe is awarded, with appreciation, to Vickie Widmyer, CPE, OCE who in her years of professional practice has made significant contributions to the field of electrolysis, and who shows the potential to continue to have a major impact on the electrolysis profession in the future.
Text of Gold Probe Award Presentation by Sara Paisner, President of Synoptic Products:
“For those of you who don’t know me (yet) my name is Sara Paisner with Synoptic Products for Ballet Needles. It has been our pleasure and honor to participate in the American Electrology Association conference for many years. We are, and continue to be, gratified by the positive reception Ballet needles receives and I am honored to be here presenting the Ballet Gold Probe Award.
The Ballet Gold Probe Award is our small way of saying thank you as well as helping to support the important work that your association does. The Award has two parts. We honor an Electrologist, selected by your board, who is making a contribution to the advancement of electrolysis at the state or national level. We also make a $1000 contribution to your association. I am please to present this check to the President of the AEA Pearl Warner.”

“From increasing the visibility of electrolysis in general to help us all, to monitoring digital mis-information about permanent hair removal, the work of the AEA contributes directly to the success of all of our businesses – manufacturer, supplier and Electrologist alike.
Every Electrologist, whether or not she is a member of an association, benefits from the work that the AEA does. And at the core of the associations are those who volunteer who do much of the work. It is those volunteers that the Ballet Gold Probe Award seeks to honor.
This year’s recipient has been an active member of the American Electrology Association, first at the state level in Washington State, and since 2015 on the Executive Board. I am pleased to honor Vickie Widmyer, CPE, OCE as the 2019 winner of the Ballet Gold Probe Award. Congratulations!”
