I have learned that I work in a very giving and kind industry where there are so many of us that have each others backs through good time and struggles. I have also learned that spa is still often thought as a luxury and I look forward to the day that spa is viewed as preventative medicine and part of everyones overall wellness strategy,” said Julie.
