My first-hand experience of creating spa experiences and spaces, designing fitness centers, and training spa technicians has led me to become a consultant in the field I love.
As a spa professional, I believe in outstanding service, wonderful and inspiring treatments and a fulfilling guest experience. The simple side of this industry can be complicated and I truly love to assist in smoothing out the edges.
The seed of my spa career was planted in Minneapolis where I entered the health and wellness industry as a personal trainer in 1995. I soon made my way to Las Vegas where I became part of the opening team for the Canyon Ranch SpaClub at the Venetian before heading to New York City to assist with the opening of the spa at the flagship Hilton Hotel on 6th avenue.
What followed were Spa Director appointments at high-end spas such as Trump International Hotel and Tower, Cowshed Spa at Soho House New York, Caudalie Vinotherapie Spa at the Plaza Hotel and most recently, the world-renowned, Forbes Five-Star rated Spa at Mandarin Oriental New York.
In between, as the Director of Spa Operations for Plus One Management, I coordinated the opening of several spa locations including mySpa Fairmont Chicago and Intercontinental Miami as well as the ARA spa brand at the Ameristar Casinos in Missouri and Colorado. In addition, I led the direction for re-branding The Ocean Spa at Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel in California, which has significance for me both personally and professionally.
My intention to live an ever-evolving and interesting life has taken me across the country and around the world, becoming transformed by every experience I encountered. My own personal lifestyle is a mixture of city and country with a love of the outdoors and a need for the city life. Complimenting my workouts of yoga, weights, running, and barre classes, I have a passion for food & cocktails, photography, and the unknown.
Together we can discover your intention and grow a healthy business.
