Crista, a native of California, has a deep passion for all things related to beauty, skincare, and overall health and wellness. At the age of 21, she began working in the plastic surgery field alongside a well-established doctor in Newport Beach. It didn't take long for Crista to discover her love for skincare and realize her potential in this field.
As her passion for skincare grew, Crista made the decision to leave nursing and joined a family owned spa in Long Beach, where she worked diligently for over a decade. When the opportunity arose for her to take over the spa's location due to the owner's retirement, Crista seized it and established her own luxurious spa, which she named Sanctuary.
With over 20 years of experience as an Esthetician, Crista possesses extensive skills, training, certifications, and expertise in various treatments and techniques. Her repertoire includes Microneedling, Dermaplaning, Chemical Peels, Dermalinfusion, Microdermabrasion, Oxygen Therapy, Full Body Waxing, and Microblading.
Crista is deeply committed to her clients and staying up to date with the ever-evolving world of skincare and its technologies. She actively seeks out state of the art products and treatments for Sanctuary, ensuring that their clients receive the best possible care and an extraordinary spa experience.
Considering the Sanctuary staff as an extension of her own family, Crista dedicates much of her time to mentoring and sharing her expertise with her team. She takes great pride in leading such a highly talented group and is thrilled by the value Sanctuary Spa provides to their cherished clients.
Crista lives by the motto, "If you love what you do, you never really work a day in your life."
