Lisa Kasanicky

Lisa Kasanicky (AKA, the Spa Girl) first discovered her passion for spas when she visited a Phoenix resort spa as a reprieve from her stressful career as technical documentation consultant. Struck by how much her whole body and attitude lightened up after just that one visit, she developed the website as a way to share useful information with an audience much like herself — women in serious need of a spa time-out. Lisa has since developed spa guides for the Arizona Office of Tourism and for The Arizona Republic. She has served as the spa editor for Item magazine, beauty editor for East West magazine, and is a regular beauty columnist and features writer for several Phoenix-based and national publications including Leisure Group Travel, LiveSpa, Healing Lifestyles & Spas and Generation Health magazines.
