Katie, Founder

My background is in manufacturing & operations in the pharmaceutical & beauty industries.  I created Alma in 2011 after relocating here from the States and starting to craft my own natural products.  My passion is challenging people to consider to new ideas & encouraging them to explore what speaks to them to bring happiness, health, abundance into every aspect of their lives.

I’m passionate about creating a space where: (1) people don’t have to worry about whether or not the products being used or breathed are safe (2) quality services & perfect hygiene are almost taken for granted since they’re the core of what we do (3) busy people can get the R&R they need without spending hours at the spa (4) you can have a great conversation or relax on your own (5)it is unpretentious and people feel comfortable (6) we have a positive impact on everyone who walks in the door (7) it feels more like a community of awesome people than a stuffy spa (8)people want to keep coming back!
