How did you get your start in the Spa industry?
I always had a passion for wellness and beauty at a young age. My mother’s dear friend was an aesthetician and introduced me to the proven science behind skincare. After attending college for business administration, I decided to refocus my studies on the spa and wellness sector and attended school to become an aesthetician. I enrolled in an intensive program which exposed me to many different facets of skin histology. After receiving my license and working for some of the most prestigious Spas, I furthered my education my attending a rigorous course study in student instruction. Armed with dual degrees, I was able to work alongside many industry veterans where we collaborated on many health and wellness initiatives.

I think it’s important to always take time for yourself. I start my day with a guided meditation. This truly helps to clear the mind and sets the intention for the day. I also take time out at the end of every day to find a quiet space to reflect on the day’s happenings. This helps bring a balance to my evening and allows me be present with my family.
