Chapter 7. 20 years and the dream continues…
Over the past 20 years Stephanie Shepherd has created a collection of the most magnificent spas in Australia. Profiled regularly in the press as a spa leader, frequented by high profile celebrities and winner of numerous spa industry awards, Stephanies childhood dream has well and truly come to life.
Committed to the high standards of spa, Stephanie Shepherd is an active member of the APAA (Australian Professional Aesthetician Association), the ASPA (Australian Spa Association) and the ISPA (International Spa Association). Stephanie’s reputation as a leader in the spa industry is evident in her spa locations, from luxury international hotels to the chic urban hub of Bulimba.
Constantly asked what her business secret is, Stephanie’s answer is refreshingly simple.
“It takes a team of people and a lots of hard work for any business to be successful, but the key ingredients for our spa success is passion and clients. The passion I have as a spa owner is a passion shared by our team and our clients – our amazing, supportive and loving clients”.
“I am extremely humbled and proud of our business, our celebrity following, award recognition and industry accomplishments, but above all I see my greatest success as the loyal clientele and life long friendships I have formed since commencing my spa journey. I am just as passionate now as I was when I opened my 2 room beauty salon 20 years ago.” Stephanie Shepherd, CEO and Founder.
