Lauren has always had an interest in beauty and the way in which it reflects your health and well-being. Having recently graduated with a Diploma of Advanced Esthetics, she is excited to be working within the field and seeing where this career path leads her. After her work as a flight attendant for more than five (5) years, she learnt the importance of skin care from an early age. Working at high altitudes with recirculated air, dehydrated skin was a constant issue. As such, facial rejuvenation and skin care treatments are predominantly her areas of interest within spa therapy.
Aside from her passion for the beauty industry, she loves travel, fashion and personal fitness. She is a self-confessed cardio addict who loves doing anything active whether it is running, swimming or spinning! She feels privileged to live in Osoyoos, particularly in the summer, because the outdoor activities are endless. She is thrilled to be working with the industry team at Illumination Spa.
