I can honestly say that I would not be the successful manager I am today without the guidance, support and knowledge Angela provided me with. Her extensive knowledge of spa operations and strategic planning, combined with adaptable teaching methods have stayed with me and when I come across a new challenge, I often refer back to her management manuals for support. I do not know a stronger, more passionate or experienced driver of change and her commitment to moving the spa industry forward is unlike anything I have ever come across.
