Meet The Team
Licensed Massage Therapist
Leah has been a Massage Therapist for over 6 years and “has the privilege of helping people slow their minds, reconnect with their bodies, and release stress.”
Leah worked at Journey for a short time before staying home with her kiddos and then rejoined our team a few years later. Leah is a wonderful Massage Therapist who is easy-going, funny, and loved by her guests!
Leah’s favorite massage to perform is our Head in the Clouds Massage – it’s such a great way to relieve the pain and tension that so many of us carry in our upper back, shoulders and neck, and this massage can have a wonderful impact on pain and stress reduction.
When Leah is not giving massages, she loves to receive our Spa Pedicure.
Leah specializes in our Signature, Deep Tissue, Pregnancy and Head in the Clouds Massages.

Julien is one of our very talented Massage Therapists, who despite only having been at Journey for less than a year has quickly developed a loyal following of guests who love his massages!
We often hear from guests that Julien is great at listening to them, making sure they feel comfortable, and using just the right pressure. So many guests have told our Front Desk Team that they were originally hesitant to schedule with a male Massage Therapist, but then they were so glad they did!
Julien likes being able to help people relax, while also helping them manage pain caused by tight muscles. Two of his favorite massages to give are Hot Stone and Deep Tissue. No matter which massage you choose from Julien, we can almost guarantee you will love it!
Julien specializes in our Cold Stone, Signature, Deep Tissue, Hot Stone, Pregnancy and Head in the Clouds Massages.

Ruthie started at Journey as an intern while still in Cosmetology school and has now been working in the industry for two years, continually perfecting her skills.

Ruthie loves getting to see the before and after transformation for guests! She loves how much more comfortable and relaxed they become because of their service (regardless of if it’s a facial, massage, or getting their nails done) and from stepping into the relaxing atmosphere of Journey in comparison to the outside world.
When Ruthie has some free time (which isn’t often!), she loves receiving one of Journey’s relaxing facials!
Ruthie specializes in our Lymphatic Drainage, Cupping, Signature, Deep Tissue, Hot Stone, Pregnancy and Head in the Clouds Massages.

Licensed Massage Therapist
Melissa has been a Massage Therapist for a year and a half now, but it seems like she’s been one for much longer than that! Guests are always impressed by her massages and can’t wait to rebook. Melissa specializes in all of our massages – Signature, Head in the Clouds, Side-by-Side, and her favorite to perform – Hot Stone! She also loves it when guests schedule our Head in the Clouds massage because she finds that so many guests have neck and back pain, so this specific massage really targets those areas.
As someone who has had chronic pain in her back and neck, Melissa has seen how massages can help with managing pain. She loves helping people look and feel their best because she has been on the other side. So many people have stress or built-up tension that can be relieved with massage and she is honored to be the person who can help them relax and relieve stress and pain.
When Melissa has time to schedule a service for herself, she will most likely choose our Signature Facial, as it’s one of her favorites + most relaxing services!
Liz is newer to the salon and spa industry, but she’s been in love with giving manicures and pedicures for years and that definitely shows in the quality of her amazing work!
Liz is a fun-loving addition to the Journey Team, with her great sense of humor and ability to make friends with anyone. She’s so fun to spend an hour with while receiving a manicure or pedicure.

She is very talented when it comes to all hair color services, haircuts, hair treatments and hair extensions, but her specialty is definitely Curly Haircuts! With naturally curly hair herself, Calista has learned so much on her own and through cosmetology school that will help those with natural curls finally love their hair.
Calista became a Stylist because hair came naturally to her - growing up she was always playing with her dolls’, friends’ or family members’ hair. She loves that she can have fun and be creative with every guest, as they are each a unique canvas. Calista finds it very rewarding to make others feel and look pretty.
When Calista isn’t occupied helping others, she loves receiving pedicures at Journey!

While mostly being a stay-at-home mom, Mandy works behind the scenes on marketing, the Journey website, social media, product ordering + more. She loves planning new promotions, bringing in new products, and having the time at home to pray for the team and guests.

Mandy loves all Journey services. If she could choose her ideal spa day it would definitely include a Seasonal Pedicure, a 90 Minute Massage and a Haircut (because you can’t beat the Journey Wash House experience!)
