Meet Ashley Sontag

Ashley is a newer esthetician who is deeply enthusiastic and excited to be a part of the spa industry. Originally graduating with a degree in Business Studies and a bachelor’s in Technical Leadership, like many graduates, she soon realized this career was not the right fit for her. With her mother’s blessing, who Ashley considers her best friend, Ashley decided to seek her joy in life with a degree in aesthetics. As a life-long sufferer of skin issues, aesthetics is close to her heart, and that struggle was a primary reason she decided to move to this career path.

She takes pride in providing a relaxing, beneficial experience to her clients and matching them to the best products for their skin. She cares deeply about her clients leaving refreshed, but also that they go home well-educated on the right kinds of products to use on their own to keep. In her off-hours, Ashley loves to read and watch TV. Learning new things, and trying new activities, are among her favorite things to do.

Meet Cody Byrnes

We are so happy to have Cody on our team.  Cody has a special something when it comes to caring and sharing her warmth and talent.  Practicing aesthetics at The Hotel Hershey is where Cody started her career in skincare.  She quickly realized that she is meant to work in a more personal setting, so that she can further help the needs of her clients.  Serving, teaching, and being a part of your healthy skin journey is her goal.

Cody went to school for aesthetics because she herself had problems with her skin. After learning how to properly take care of her skin, she loves to help others who have the same struggles. She has a fabulous touch and skill set.  You will feel well cared for in Cody’s hands!

“Courtney is lovely. A facial with her isn’t just therapeutic for your skin; she really makes it a whole experience, helping you to relax while you’re on the table. She’s very knowledgeable and I loved the product line she uses. She was non-judgmental about my skin picking (such a bad habit!) and offered me some advice to treat my skin with more kindness. A week post-facial, I’m seeing improvements in evenness, tone, and texture. Courtney was not at all pushy about selling products, which I appreciated, but I wound up taking some things home because I just liked them that much.”
