I am thrilled to say I just found out that Glow Medispa was voted Best Medispa by Seattle Magazine readers in the 2017 Readers’ Choice awards! The best part about this is that I had no idea voting was going on, and we did not have a campaign to ask our clients for votes. It was a total surprise, and thank you Seattle! We love you!
This year has been an incredible ride. In January, I happened to meet an aesthetic nurse named Mary Cartwright whom I knew was the ONLY injector in the entire Pacific Northwest that a laser friend of mine would let touch him with a needle. We decided to have lunch and after talking with her for less than an hour I offered her a job on the spot. What a gem of a person! And she said yes! Mary joined my staff soon after that lunch and we have been great partners ever since.
2017 was a year of expansion for us, with the opening of our satellite location in Magnolia in February. Glow Too is a small boutique spa that is open by appointment only. There, we provide a special exclusive and private experience where we can provide many of the services available in our flagship West Seattle spa. Starting in January 2018, Glow Too will be open for appointments 4 days/week on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.
We have also expanded services. With the addition of the LaseMD fractional laser, our armamentarium of tools is now complete. Fractional laser resurfacing will smooth and plump the skin and lift pigment like sun damage and even melasma-- and the best part is it makes your skin Glow. And that’s our purpose in life.
In September, Danielle joined Toni and Jeni to complete our team of Master Aestheticians. Danielle is also a professional makeup artist and has added her valuable expertise in Jane Iredale cosmetics, offering make-overs and special occasion makeup to our services.
I’m excited to share that Teri Scott will be joining our staff in January. Teri is a Nurse Practitioner and expert in injectables. Now between Mary, Teri and myself we will be fully staffed 6 days/week. I’m looking forward to sharing and growing more with you all in 2018. As I approach my 50th birthday in a few weeks (can you believe it?!?!), I want to thank you all for being a part of our Glow family.
