Crista is a born and raised southern California girl. After graduating from college she followed her dream of becoming a nurse.
As her passion for skin care developed, she left nursing and worked for a family-owned spa in Long Beach for over ten years. When the owner decided to retire, Crista seized the opportunity to take over the location and built her own luxury spa. It was then that Sanctuary was born.
Crista is very dedicated to her clients and is committed to staying current on the ever changing world of skin care and skin care technologies. She continually searches out state of the art products and treatments for Sanctuary in order to give their clients the absolute best care and the most amazing spa experience.
Crista considers the Sanctuary staff to be a part of her extended family and spends much of her time mentoring and sharing her experience with the girls. Crista is pleased to lead such a highly talented team and is proud of the value Sanctuary Spa provides to their clients.
In 2012 Crista’s life became even dreamier when in 2012 her son Dylan was born and she became engaged to her best friend. Crista’s motto has always been “if you love what you do, you never really work a day in your life.”
