  MARY KATE, Esthetician and Airbrush Tanning Specialist   I have been a part of the TWS family since February 2015. I started as a Front Desk Receptionist and when I graduated from my program at The New York Institute of Esthetics, I began practicing as a Licensed Esthetician here at the spa. I am so thrilled to have found this place to call a second home to flourish my career. I have such a passion for natural skincare and am so happy I finally pursued my dream of becoming an Esthetician.  Besides the wonderful people I work with, my favorite part about The W Spa is the ilike skincare line that we use. My personal favorite product is the Carotene Essentials Rich Moisturizer. It has made such a difference for hydrating my skin.  I am a big sports fan especially hockey so I love going to Sabres games. I enjoy being active outside as much as possible by riding bikes, kayaking, swimming, or going to concerts. My boyfriend and I spend a lot of time with our family and friends. I am a firm believer that what we put out in the universe is what we will receive back and timing is everything so I always try to make one thing better about myself than the day before.

  ALEXANDRA, Spa Coordinator and Receptionist   After graduating from Kenmore West High School in 2012, I began as a student at Buffalo State pursuing a degree in social work. I live with my boyfriend and two kitties, Stella and Ember, and in my free time I like to take photographs, play rugby, spend time with my family and hike some of the beautiful parks we have locally. My favorite thing about living in Buffalo is the beautiful architecture and the amazing food!!  I’m really lucky to work at TWS, I get to work alongside such accomplished and talented women! My favorite TWS service would have to be the lash extensions, they keep me feeling effortlessly beautiful for weeks and my favorite products available here are the Blinc Amplified Mascara as well as the Lemon Cleansing Milk by ilike organic skin care.

  TINA, Waxing Specialist   After owning my own business for 27 years, the ease of coming to work each day is more than a pleasure. The atmosphere and camaraderie among peers at The W Spa is second to none.  As a leading specialist in the area of female Australians, Brazilians and advanced body waxing techniques, my guests at The W Spa travel from Syracuse, Erie, PA and Canada.  The most important things to me are my three children, grandchildren, family, and friends. They are the light and loves of my life.  “The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes that she wears, the figure she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.” -Audrey Hepburn, a favorite quote from a favorite actress.

  BRIANNA, Receptionist   I graduated from Clarence High School in 2012 and am currently attending D’Youville in the School of Pharmacy.  I love Buffalo when the weather is nice and I can enjoy it with a refreshing run outdoors. I have a great time with my friends downtown trying new restaurants and shopping at anyone of the malls. Sometimes I also like to stay in and cook something delicious with my mom. At home we have two sweet Dobermans named Lucie and Kaiser.  My favorite products at TWS are anything by Whish in the almond scent. I also started using Rapid Lash and I can’t believe how fast my eyelashes are becoming long and beautiful!

  MICHELLE, Licensed Massage Therapist   I became a licensed massage therapist in March of 2017, after graduating from NCCC. I love getting to see the look on people’s faces after receiving a massage, happy and relaxed. My favorite areas of the body to work on are the head neck and shoulders, releasing tension that can cause stiffness, pain, and headaches. I love doing hot stone, and maternity massage.  At home, I have a loving and supportive husband, and am a new mom to a baby girl, and a Golden Retriever. I love spending time with my family, and exercising either at the gym, or taking an aerial class.
