Grand Spa

Interesting things about you and the business you are in?

Spa/Company Name: Grand Spa


How did you end up in the industry? I started out early in my career working in the Cosmetic Industry. This involved a lot of travel. I loved the business and when starting a family wanted to be at home more. After opening a Primrose School Franchise as my first business-I missed the beauty business. I found a location that allowed me to market to the community and all the parents at my child care. It worked out great and 4 years later I purchased my second location the Grand Spa.

If you are not working…what are you doing? Spending time with my husband and children. I love yoga,
riding my horse, and travel.
