spa therapist & owner
Rosanna turned her passion into myspa in the summer of 2008. Her dream was to one day have the spa guru’s working with her and that dream has become a reality! She still has to pinch herself that she is a part of such a positive movement with both the myspa team and the people they serve.
Her favourite part of the day is two things; Looking out the window and seeing myspa’s staff cars in the parking lot and knowing she has such a reliable, hardworking, passionate team to work alongside with. It’s an incredible feeling to her. Rosanna also loves seeing YOU! Her clients brighten her day and she loves communicating with them, but most of all seeing their happy faces once they have been plucked and polished.
When Rosanna is not in the treatment room, she can be found still representing myspa loud and proud. You may catch her at the gym, doing yoga, running by the water, hanging out with family and friends and also possibly upside down doing a handstand.
