Kiley Maziarski, Licenced Massage Therapist

“I’ve been a licensed massage therapist since 2003. I typically use a blend of Lomi Lomi, Swedish and Deep Tissue to create a restoring massage and love learning new modalities to enhance my practice.  My focuse through bodywork is to meet your personal needs while bringing more awareness to  your body and how you move through life.  My hope is that each person I see leaves happier and inspired to treat themselves a little better each day.  I live on beautiful Camano Island with my awesome husband, two amazing daughters and our sweet big lug of a dog, Pete.  I’m all about family, having a good laugh, yoga, herbs, oils, beaches, music and art.  I also have my own line of all natural body care products: Ki Body Care, which you can purchase right here at the Spa.”

Markie Parks, Esthetician and Nail Care Specialist 

“Hi, my name is Markie and I grew up in Central California. From a very early age, I have always had an interest in skin care. From at-home face masks with girlfriends, to bridal makeup on the weekends, I genuinely love helping others feel the most comfortable in their natural skin. After High School, I pursued my Esthetician license by attending Paul Mitchell-The Cosmetology School in Fresno CA. Helping my clients to achieve their skin care goals is so rewarding. Additionally, I provide natural nail care services including spa pedicures and natural nail manicures. I am looking forward to providing you with a restful and rejuvenating experience!”

Jill Carter, Licensed Massage Therapist 

“I first became interested in massage after receiving treatments and the idea of a career change developed. I graduated from Spectrum School of Massage in 2001. I view massage therapy as a form of healing the body, spirit, and mind. My goal for my clients is to restore, and promote balance and well being in their body and mind. I feel very fortunate to be able to bring relief to people who suffer from the stresses of daily life. I strive to meet the needs and expectations of my clients while being guided by the values of respect, compassion, and professionalism.”

Emily Branstrom, Licensed Massage Therapist

“I am a newly licensed massage therapist as of June 2018 and am so excited to be starting out my career in such a wonderful and wholesome place like this! I am a born and raised Washington girl. I enjoy hiking, weightlifting, and have a really strong passion for music! I decided I wanted to take on the career of massage therapy because helping others let go of the daily stressors of life is a very rewarding feeling. I will do my very best to help each of my clients reach optimal relaxation, restore their well-being, and meet their individualized needs. I’m looking forward to this next chapter of life and all the growing potential I have in this field of work!”

Lynnett Newton, Licensed Esthetician

“Hi, I’m Lynnett and I’m so thrilled to be a part of the family here at Camano Island Day Spa!  Originally, I am from Salt Lake City, Utah where I spent most of my life growing up.  Our little family lived for eight years in the heart of Texas and decided to move to our dream destination in the summer of 2017. We’ve successfully planted roots here in Washington.  I’m a recent empty nester who decided to change career paths after being a paralegal and office administrator for 25 years.  After taking an active part in my own skin care for so long, I found myself being more and more curious about the intricate workings of the skin and how to prolong the aging of it.  I decided to go to Evergreen Beauty College this year and pursue a license in esthetics so that I may share knowledge with others.  The past year and a half have been an amazing period of transition for me, and I’m loving the outlook ahead.  I look forward to meeting you and pampering you soon.

I enjoy challenges, and find magic in everyday little things.I am a happy wife, mother, and grandmother. I love yoga, photography, making jewelry, crochet, painting, and walking my dogs.

Celene Chen, Reception

“Hi, I’m Celene. I grew up in Washington and studied cultural anthropology in college. I’m passionate about self care and strongly believe that it’s our duty to take care of our bodies and minds in order to live a balanced life. I enjoy doing yoga, weight training, being outside with my dog, and learning new things from perspectives different than my own. Cultivating a peaceful and nurturing environment is important to me, and I’m happy to part of that at the Camano Island Day Spa.”

Rhonda Simpson, Spa Owner   rhonda@camanoislanddayspa.com

“I have long held the vision of a healing and wellness center to help people both physically and emotionally, and to provide a place where people can feel safe to heal. A place where the body and mind can be free to rejuvenate and restore. Now I am able to combine my work in business administration, my love of yoga, and my desire to facilitate healing on many levels. I have worked in the Seattle area for over 15 years in Human Resources. I also teach yoga at Movement Arts. I love to see people happy and healthy. This desire has spirited me forth on this new venture; a day spa!  Never stop dreaming for yourself and for all those you come in contact with on your path.”

Kara Keating, Administration   kara@camanoislanddayspa.com  “I had been dreaming of a spa environment to be right next door to my yoga studio. What an excellent combination for healing and health! Last year Rhonda and I were on retreat in Costa Rica talking about the Spa when we decided to go for it and make the dream become reality. Eventually I have plans to train as a healer and work with clients in the spa. For now I am happy to help manage and promote the spa. You will see me sometimes helping behind the desk at the Spa, or next door where I teach yoga at Movement Arts.”
