[ 48 ] • # dayspamagazine • july 2018 IF YOU WEREN'T IN THIS FIELD, WHAT WOULD YOU BE DOING? Nika Samples esthetician Rhapsody Spa at The Westin Nashville Hotel Nashville, Tennessee I originally went into this industry because my problematic skin made me very self-conscious, but if I hadn't become an esthetician, I would have pursued a professional singing career. I've been singing since I was two, according to my uncle! My earliest memories are of participating in elementary school talent shows, and I was also part of a small local girl group. What I love most about singing is how it fi lls my heart with joy. " " Catherine Dower Sinclair VP of spa operations Mirbeau Hospitality Service s Skaneateles, New York If I weren't in the spa industry, I would want to be a travel writer—to see new places and be paid to write about them seems like a dream. I used to be quite adventurous and loved trying new, crazy things like glacier skiing, zip-lining high above the rain forest, bungee jumping at night and paragliding. Traveling is the best adventure and I have been fortunate enough to have seen more than 20 countries already, but with each trip comes the desire for more! " " Dave Burlington owner Massage Heights Friendswood, Texas My greatest passion in life is helping people, which is why I chose this career path. Massage therapy has positively impacted my life and overall health in so many ways, and I love witnessing how it helps others. Although I couldn't imagine myself in any other fi eld, I think I would thrive in a career in education. I've always loved teaching and infl uencing personal growth in my friends and colleagues. Being a part of students' development and knowing that I've assisted in the advancement of their personal abilities would be very rewarding. " " Want to be quoted in DAYSPA?

"This serum works as a stand-alone product for people who don't want too many steps, yet it's light enough for those who love to layer. With its higher price point, this last-minute 'add-on' has also helped boost our daily sales significantly, and we haven't even had to run any promotions; my retail girls are living proof of the serum's results, so it truly sells itself!" u
