MEET JILL!

Hi, I’m Jill. I love helping people feel better about themselves, and I think it’s one of the most important parts of my job.  I always wanted to make skincare my career because of that, but it wasn’t until recently that I was able to actually fulfill that desire. I am so happy with my life now that I have followed my dream because it’s so rewarding to make a difference in someone’s life! That’s when I know I’m doing what I was meant to do.

I graduated from the Esthetics division of the Omaha School of Massage Therapy. I graduated at the top of my class and also received the Student of the Year award – 2 accomplishments that I am very proud of because I took my schooling very seriously.

I believe that Skincare and Esthetics are not just taking care of your skin but also taking care of your mind, body, and soul. It’s a good time to let go and escape from the stresses of everyday living. When you take time to renew and refresh yourself, you feel better, and everyone around you feels that positive energy.  It’s all about feeling good about YOU and enjoying life to the best of your abilities.

I am so happy to be at Kimberly Spa. We have all the latest technology and equipment that an esthetician needs plus outstanding product lines. Kimberly gives us the resources and training that are on the leading edge of Esthetics.  I am very blessed and excited to have been chosen to work here, and I’m really looking forward to sharing that excitement with my clients!

 

MEET CLAIRE!

Hi, I’m Claire.  You should love the skin you’re in, and I love my job because I get to help people love and feel comfortable in their skin. I first became interested in esthetics in high school when I worked in a tanning salon. I quickly learned tanning is horrible for you unless you Spray/Air-Brush tan; however, this job introduced me to skin care.  While working there,  my fellow cheerleaders would come over every Friday before the game so I could do their make-up which created a passion and drive for wanting to share those talents.

After spending a year at UNK studying marketing (interesting, but not fulfilling), I decided to pursue my love for skin at Capitol School of Esthetics where I graduated top of my class.  I was also the first to graduate.  I have attended International Esthetic Conferences, and I volunteer at fashion shows, pageants, and haunted houses doing make-up. I love to keep active in the community, and I LOVE keeping up on all of the latest skin care trends.

I feel so blessed to be a member of the Kimberly Spa family and to be working with such a talented team.  I hope to see you soon!

 

MEET MICHELLE!

Hey, Spa-Goers!  My name is Michelle, and I am so excited to be here at Kimberly Spa.  I have been an Esthetician for over 2 years, and I LOVE what I do.  I began my career search in Cosmetology school where we learned a small tid-bit about skin care.  Just that little nugget of information was all it took to spark my true passion, so I began my training in Esthetics school – and boy am I glad I did.  I graduated from the College of Hair Design in Lincoln for Esthetics in 2011 with a certificate in Advanced Waxing Techniques.

I grew up in Norfolk, NE, on a farm where I quickly learned the meaning of hard work.  I am very energetic; my friends describe me as a ‘bubbly’ person.  My favorite hobbies are dancing (seriously…have you seen our latest videos?) and shopping (for shoes, of course). I am thrilled to be a part of the Kimberly Spa team.  It is an award-winning day spa that ANY Esthetician would be proud to call home!  I am looking forward to meeting all of you and sharing the Kimberly Spa experience.

 

MEET MINDY!

Hello, beauties!  My name is Mindy.  I am a recent graduate from Capitol School, and was the esthetics program’s first student to be awarded Elite. I enjoy all aspects of the esthetic industry, but my favorite part of working as an esthetician is researching skin care products, learning about their ingredient make up, and figuring out how it will benefit my clients.  I love working with clients to produce their desired skin results and especially seeing how excited people are when they achieve what we work for together.  I’m excited to join the Kimberly Spa team, and I look forward to working with you!

 

Our Massage Therapists

 

MEET RAEBECCA!

Hello, I’m RaeBecca, and I am a licensed massage therapist at Kimberly Spa.  I am a graduate of the Omaha School of Massage and Healthcare of Herzing University, and I am certified in deep tissue and sports therapy massage.  I am continuously working to expand my knowledge and technique.

I absolutely love providing relaxation and relief through massage therapy, and I encourage regular (monthly!) massages for all my clients. Massages are not only for stress and pain relief; they are important for preventive care and regular maintenance for the body.

I’ve always been interested in helping people, so I turned to massage therapy. To me, if I can relieve someone’s pain, I am positively affecting the lives of my clients.

I look forward to meeting you so we can discuss what benefits you will receive from a massage!

 

MEET LORENZO!

Hi there, I’m Lorenzo!  I have always enjoyed helping people ever since I was a small child.  I joined the Marine Corps when I was 17 to fulfill a sense of duty and to see the world.  During my time of service, I was deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan where I served as a Computer/Radio Tech and a Machine Gunner.  I also visited Germany and Spain for a bit during my service where I rediscovered my love for food.  Traveling is very important to me and I feel that my time in the Marines reinforced that.  After leaving the military, I spent 6 months traveling from state to state visiting old friends. Eventually I ended up in Shaker Heights, Ohio, where I gained an interest in becoming a massage therapist.

I graduated from the Myotherapy Institute for Massage Therapy in Lincoln, Nebraska, in August 2012, and I then moved to Omaha to attend Culinary School one month later.  My love for cooking came from my mother.  My fondest memories of my childhood were in the kitchen helping her cook and bake.  Having a small child of my own, I decided that cooking was something I would like to pass on to her.

My desire to travel was reinforced when I did a study abroad to Tokyo, Japan, and Bangkok, Thailand, for culinary school.  While I was in Thailand, I learned some very useful Thai massage techniques that I still use today.  I am very excited about my career in Massage Therapy at Kimberly Spa!

 

MEET LUCRETIA!

Hello, everyone!  My name is Lucretia, and I’m a licensed massage therapist at Kimberly Spa.  I graduated from Omaha School of Massage and Healthcare.  I’m certified in Reflexology, Thai, and Reiki.  I enjoy giving therapeutic and relaxing massages.  I have always been interested in massage since I was young.  I enjoyed giving massages to family members and friends and teammates.

I am excited about being part of the Kimberly Spa team because of the warm, friendly, and inviting atmosphere.  The staff here is amazing and feels like one big family.  I am looking forward to meeting new massage therapy clients!

 

Our Nail Technicians

 

MEET COLLEEN!

Hello, my name is Colleen…AND I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, all aspects of Nail Care!  I started working with nail enhancements on myself at a very early age after trying all the “make your nails stronger and longer products” on the market… to no avail.  The results after several years were many compliments of my nails and being asked who did them.  At that time just learning it took a very long time for me to do my nails, and I had no intention of attempting this task on anyone else.  However, after several years of the constant compliments and encouragement that I should do nails, I finally attended Nail Technology School in the city of Dallas, Texas.
I moved back to Omaha in 1983, and worked at several large beauty salons before starting my own nails only salon in November of 1987. The Salon was a success until February of 2014, when the building my salon was located in had a fire.  This was like losing a family member.
After a short grieving period and when I found out they were not going to repair the building, I felt I didn’t want to open another salon.  I decided to search for just the right place where I could let my talent shine…after looking at many locations, I received a letter in the mail from Kimberly Spa explaining that they needed someone with my talent.  I contacted them, went to visit, and fell in love with the ambiance of the spa as well as the people there!

The rest is history now.  I’ve found a new home.  I love everyone here.  They have welcomed me with open arms and are very helpful in my new learning curve.

I CAN’T WAIT TO SEE YOU!
