What does wellness mean to you?

I believe that spa treatments are a great way to manage stress, anxiety, and overall holistic health. When you allow yourself to be still and lovingly care for your body it will in return support and strengthen you. A healthy diet, exercise, and meditation are keys to creating inner balance and aging gracefully. Your wellness is one of your super powers. It comes with an energy that elevates you into a more happy, fulfilled, empowered you!

Why did you get into Esthetics?

I owe it to two Wonder Women in my life. My great-grandmother planted the seeds. When I was a little girl she used to make me pop the big blackheads that varied from the size of a quarter to plum on her back. Growing up, she taught me different “secret” recipes and water therapies to heal the skin that she learned from her father. I grew up loving skin and creating homemade products. Going into the skin care industry wasn’t part of my plan, my career was in legal and children’s publishing. The second woman was the water that helped the seed flourish, my dear friend from college. She encouraged me to pursue my passion and become an entrepreneur. Had it not been for her faith in me, I would have never embarked on this journey.

What is currently your favorite treatment at Oasis and why?

That is such a hard question, I can’t possibly choose one! Oasis offers a wide variety of treatments guaranteed to pamper you from head to toe! As far as facials, I personally enjoy doing the GM COLLIN Age-Defying Antioxidant Facial, the GM COLLIN Botinol Facial, and the EMINENCE Organic Customized Facial for Calm skin. An add-on treatment I absolutely love is the Revitalizing Eye Treatment. I get to use pink quartz crystals and an eye mask. They come with a cooling effect that de-puffs and hydrates, giving your skin a plump, radiant complexion. If you want your body smelling delicious, looking polished, and feeling softer than ever, I highly recommend the ELEMIS Exotic Frangipani Salt Scrub…Thank me later!
