I strive to help our guests relax, and educate them on how to incorporate those relaxation techniques into their own lives, so they can leave our spa feeling better and happier.
I’m Mia, an educator/mentor here at Serenity Couture. I’ve been with the company since 2009 and have developed my skill, and deepened my passion for this industry through the many opportunities Serenity has provided me! My passion is education- for myself, my coworkers, and my guests! I’m here to make you feel and look you’re absolute best, then SHOW you how to create that look yourself at home! I believe in building lasting relationships- built on trust with my guests and am proud to say I LOVE what I do J Aside from working, I enjoy spending time with my beautiful son, and reading a good book.

I have been doing hair now for the past 15 years and I can honestly say I love what I do. Every day is a new adventure and challenge. Not many people can say that every day they work is completely different from the day before!
