Crista is a Native California girl. She is absolutely in love with all things that have to do with beauty, skincare and overall health & wellness.
At 21 years old, she started working in the plastic surgery field for a well established doctor in Newport Beach. It didn’t take long for Crista to develop a passion for skin care and she quickly realized her potential in the skin care field.
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 has been working as an Esthetician for over 20 years. Her extensive skills, trainings, certifications and experience includes: Microneeding, Dermaplaning, Chemical Peels, Dermalinfusion, Microdermabrasion, Oxygen Therapy, Micro Current, Galvanic Current, Full Body Waxing and Microblading.
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.
Crista’s motto has always been “if you love what you do, you never really work a day in your life.”
