Meet our Team
Tenure at company: 20 years
Favorite treatment: Cupping Massage, because it helps with pain, inflammation, blood flow, and it's just deeply relaxing.
Favorite product: Neocutis Bio Serum - no contest. It is an anti-aging serum that hydrates, smoothes, and firms the skin.
When I was a little girl, the women in my family taught me the importance of “me-time.” I remember when they would all go off to the spa together, and how much more relaxed and accessible my mom was when she returned. That was only the beginning of my interest in the spa industry. Over the years it continued to grow, and I brought my passion to life in 1996 when I co-founded the first Bella Santé in Lexington, MA. Since then we’ve been able to continually give guests the “me-time” they deserve and I’ve witnessed first-hand the healing power of touch.

Favorite treatment: Microneedling, because it makes my skin look better on every level.
Favorite product: SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic. I love this product, it contains multiple potent antioxidants to help prevent wrinkles and nourish skin. When I use it consistently, I always get compliments about my bright, even, glowing skin.
I visited Bella Santé first as a guest in 2002. It was my first time visiting a day spa. I was so impressed with the experience, that I couldn’t get it off my mind for weeks. At the time, I was working in the financial industry and I was ready to make a shift in my career. Attracted to the idea of working with and take caring of women, I applied to Bella Santé. Once hired, I became certified in spa leadership and pursued every opportunity to learn more about the industry. I’ve been promoted through several different positions and now enjoy the role of VP of Operations.
Spa Director of the Wellesley location
Tenure at the company: 12 years
Favorite treatment: Hydrafacial. I love how clean it makes my skin feel and it really makes me glow.
Favorite product: SkinCeuticals Retexturizing Activator. The clarity and texture of my skin dramatically improved in a few days with no irritation. It gives me a smooth, radiant complexion and it’s oil free.
I’ve been a skincare junkie for as long as I can remember, but I love working at Bella Santé because of the strong relationships I’ve developed and the dedicated team I’m a part of. I began as a concierge 12 years ago and through the years I’ve had several different titles and have had the benefit of working at each of our locations. I’m proud to have been an integral part of developing our CARE Core Behaviors, which have served as the primary guidelines for our business. Currently, I’m the spa director at our Wellesley location and I love coming to work every day to grow, inspire, and work beside this special group of people.

Favorite treatment: The HydraFacial has won my heart. The transformation it makes on my skin truly makes me feel beautiful.
Favorite product: Skinceuticals C E Ferulic—two words: Life. Changing.
I have always loved taking care of others and making them look and feel good.

Now I’m at Bella Santé and the work I do is one of the most satisfying things in the world for me.

Favorite treatment: The Hydrafacial - the results are amazing and if I could get one every week, I would.
Favorite product: SkinCeuticals Resveratol BE is my nighttime warrior. I love how it makes my skin look and feel.
After working for more than a decade on the corporate side of Starbucks Corporation I decided to make a shift into the quiet world of spa. I enrolled in esthetic school and was hired at Bella Santé as part of the Jr. Esthetics Program; where I worked as a Concierge and trained to become an Esthetician at the same time. I loved serving our guests as an esthetician but once the opportunity to become a Spa Director presented itself my coworkers urged me to apply. I got the job! I now enjoy creating an atmosphere where every guest can feel more relaxed, beautiful and confident.
Corporate Massage Director
For as long as I can remember I’ve had a love for health and wellness and a passion for helping others feel better within and about themselves. Prior to getting into the spa industry, I was a personal trainer, fitness, and dance instructor. It was then that I noticed that when people were healthy and felt good about themselves, they were their best selves. I loved being a part of it and I wanted to further my education so I could better help in this process of wellbeing. I went back to school, became a massage therapist and eventually ended up at Bella Santé as a Spa Director. Now I’m a Massage Director and the merging of my passions of personal growth in health and my love of coaching and mentoring has brought me to where I am today.
Corporate Esthetic Director
Tenure at company: I am new to Bella Santé.
Favorite treatment: The Hydrafacial, because it gives instant, lasting results and it makes my skin glow.
Favorite product: The Silk Renewing Peel is and always will be a favorite of mine.
I dreamed of becoming a makeup artist as a young girl. I loved working with people and thought I had great talent with makeup! When I attended Catherine Hinds Institute of Esthetics I developed a deep appreciation for skincare and making guests feel good. After years of developing and managing skincare brands, educating and mentoring estheticians has become my talent and my passion. I’m so honored to be working with such a talented team.
Director of Inventory and Purchasing
Tenure at company: 15 years
Favorite treatment: Spa Massage—I love how relaxed and stress-free I feel after every treatment.
Favorite product: Neocutis Hyalis Serum, because of the texture and hydrating effect. I apply it right after my shower and my skin just drinks it up.
I began working for Bella Santé as a teenager in search of a part time job! After a few years of schooling I joined the team full time as Director of Inventory. My role is now behind the scenes, but I’m proud to say that what I do effects every guest that walks in our doors. I’m in charge of making sure that everyone has exactly what they need to do their job every day….it makes me feel good to take care of everyone.

Favorite treatment: Our Medical Grade Facial. I love how soft, clean, and hydrated it makes my skin.
Favorite product: Carita Lagoon Cream. I’ve been using it for over 3 years now and it smells so good and makes my skin so soft.
From a very young age, I loved playing with make-up, lotions, and perfumes. I began working in the service industry as a teenager, and I spent all my money on manicures, pedicures, and cosmetics. As I got older I treated myself to facials and massages. I grew to love these services and the spa environment, and my passion for them has only grown since I’ve been at Bella Santé—it’s my dream job.
Tenure at company: 11 years
Favorite treatment: Spa Massage, because it relaxes me and helps me better take on whatever challenges may come my way!
Favorite product: Decléor Balm. I absolutely love how it smells and it leaves my skin nice and soft, but not oily.
I fell into the spa industry entirely by accident. I applied to a job opening for the front desk concierge at Bella Santé, and loved it so much I decided to stay. Over the years I’ve held many different roles and I currently serve as the executive assistant to our CEO, Tiffany. I love how much I’ve been able to learn and grow during my time here.
Senior Creative Director
Tenure at company: I’ve been a stylist in our Wellesley location since opening: 9 years
Favorite treatment: Anything that involves hair! I love it when a guest wants to totally transform their look.
Favorite product: Oribe Dry Texture Spray. It absorbs oil at the root and leaves hair fresh while also adding volume and shine. It adds body and control to fine hair AND it smells good.
I’ve built a solid salon business with Bella Santé and have attended numerous cutting, styling, coloring and trend of the moment classes over the years. I’m always learning something new and sharing with our team. This year, after almost 17 years of working as a stylist, I became a Goldwell Master Colorist and now also serve as Creative Director for the Bella Santé Salon Team.
