Amanda Wheeler, Manager and

Licensed Massage Therapist

“I would like to thank you for your business and support for the past 11 years. I've been practicing the art of massage therapy for over 20 years and nail technology for 10 years. Running the business is my true passion as the Spa Manager. I also feel that doing pedicures and manicures is a fun way to get to know my clients. I really enjoy tailoring a routine based on each client’s 

specific needs.


I also enjoy incorporating different techniques into each massage, and I'm also interested in less common modalities. Problem-focused sessions involving the neck, shoulder, and low back pain are just some of my best works.


When a client wants to escape, my ultimate goal is to make his or her massage an unforgettable experience while producing a significant therapeutic change. My modalities include Swedish massage, trigger point therapy, reflexology, sports massage, relaxation 

massage, etc.”

Marcy Kollin, Licensed Cosmetologist

“Hi, my name is Marcy! I specialize in creating looks that fit each client’s life and style. My favorite thing to do in the art of cosmetology is to bring out a person’s natural beauty by picking cuts and colors that complement his or her face shape and skin tone. I am a great listener and make sure everyone who sits in my chair is my number one priority!


I love doing what I do because I get to make people feel good about themselves from the moment they come in until the moment they leave. I have had a passion for hair since I was a little girl and took it to the next level by attending Capri Cosmetology. I continue my education by keeping up with the latest trends and styles and attending

regular classes.


My services include women, men, and child haircuts, hair color, hairstyles, and up-dos, facials, face waxing, pedicures, manicures, and eyebrow waxing.”

Anna Kiesel, Licensed Cosmetologist 

“Hey! My name is Anna, and I'm a cosmetologist who has a passion for the art of my field. I decided to be a cosmetologist to infuse my artistic capability in the hair industry. I have been in the industry for over 5 years. Nevertheless, I am continuously taking classes to keep up with the trends, learn new techniques, and stay educated. 


I enjoy working with creative hair colors to suit the needs of our clients. I personally have been through the struggle of trying to find the right products/routine that will work for my hair. I strongly believe that DevaCurl products are a lifesaver when it comes to maintaining all types of curls. 


Call and schedule an appointment with me today. I would love to help you achieve your desired look!”
