Leadership Team

Come Experience the Secrets of Relaxation

Behind the scenes are critical leadership roles that support the Relaxation Specialists (RS) and Registered Massage Therapists (RMT) team’s as well as our wellness community. It takes a team to run our boutique spa. The spa opened in Aug of 2019 and the leadership team emerged in early 2021. Each role was added to support the team and the founder so that the company could continue to grow and scale; while improving customer service, our experience and building the vision.    

We continue to evolve, adapt and pivot to the world around us. We continue to look for ways we can improve and strive to do better each and every day. The leadership team contributes to the overall brand and vision of the company through policy creation, training, hiring and coaching. 

As a team we all have our zones of genius (our specialities) in which we operate in and add value to the team overall but we often collaborate and cross train to support each other or add another perspective. 

Our Team

Come experience the secrets of relaxation.

Sarah-Lana, D (She/Her)

HR Director
I have a love for business and people; which lead me down the Human Resources path. I love to influence and inspire others to live their best life and do what they love. Authenticity over everything. Authenticity shines in workplaces, and very proud of our teams individual and collective strengths. I was relocated to Alberta, while I was working with an International Drilling company, and very grateful for the community of like minded people I have been able to connect with.

The greatest enjoyment in Human Resources is to see a team working together towards common goals, while advancing and growing in their own individual ways. There is so much joy found in seeing colleagues grow and advance, while loving what they do.

I am passionate about people and connection, in all facets whether it be work, home, hobby life.
