She then moved on to Athina’s Desert Day Spa in Oliver to take on the role of front desk manager and therapist.. Since 2009 Leanna has also taken part in annual Eminence Organic Skin Care Training and in 2015 she received her diploma in foot Reflexology from the Canadian School of Reflexology.
Leanna brings her love of organic life to the spa with initiatives such as plant-infused spa treatments and a Japanese composting system to minimize waste. Education is an important part of Leanna’s life, and she plans to build on her extensive experience over the last decade with additional certifications and a focus on oncology esthetics to help clients undergoing cancer treatments.
