How did you get into the business?
I’ve been involved in club management for many years, but what I love most is customer service and making a difference.

What makes the Spa at Stone Creek so popular?
It’s an everyday getaway for members and guests, and it’s a great setting for the employees, too – everyone pitches in.

What are your three most recommended products?
1. Glo Minerals Primer, a silicon-based filler.
2. Astara Golden Flame Hydration Mask; it applies to all skin types and can be used as a mask or just a moisturizer.
3. Clarisonic Mia 2, it takes off much more than what meets the eye

What are your clients’ biggest beauty mistakes?
Not coming in for a correct color match and improper hydration.

Which service has you most excited?
One of our best-kept secrets is our 90-minute back facial, which includes a warm foot soak, a scalp treatment and a foot massage as well as the back treatments.

What advice do your beauty therapists give most often?
They like to remind their clients that weekly exfoliation and a hydration mask make a big difference.

Is there another spa that you admire?
The Trellis Spa at The Houstonian is close enough for a weekend but with a destination feel.

If a client can only have one treatment, what should it be?
Ceremony of Earth, it’s very unique for our area and takes place in our Vichey Treatment Room; it’s two-hours of head-to-toe relaxation.
