Owner & Founder
Melissa has been honing her craft for over two decades since graduating from cosmetology school. She started her career working at a mom and pop salon in Kent, Ohio, and immediately fell in love with the intimate setting. In the following years, Melissa worked at a number of salons across Ohio and Florida as she continued to fine-tune her art.
Her career continued to evolve when she had the incredible opportunity to return to Ohio and work with two Lead Paul Mitchell Educators doing platform work and artistry. Continuing to push herself to new limits, Melissa trained in massage in Toledo, falling in love with the ability to help people through the use of finely tuned massage techniques.
In 2009 Melissa decided that she wanted to have more control over her work environment and curate place of peace and enjoyment for clients and co-workers alike.
She feels that she is blessed to do so many different things that she loves, considers hair her art medium, while massage is therapeutic as it provides her peace at heart to be able to help others.

I have enjoyed being a part of the Lotus Spa and Salon family, and love being able to help people in any way that I can! Life is definitely a challenge at times, and when we make time for ourselves to relax and be replenished, it can make a world of difference! It has been said that the "Little foxes can spoil the vine", meaning, if we aren't careful, the trials of the everyday grind and frustrations can bog us down and steal our joy. I want to be a part of making sure your life is easier, and simple, especially with scheduling and booking your services. I can help in directing each person to the technician that is best suited for them. I hope to hear from you soon and have a blessed day.
Hello! My name is Maddie and I am an Advanced Esthetician at Lotus! I graduated from Casal Aveda Institute in March '21 and have been licensed since May of 2021. I am also certified in dermaplaning, which is a service that helps exfoliate your skin. I went into this field because I love making people feel good with my services. Making a difference in someone's skin and making them feel more confident is what I live for! My job doesn't even feel like a job, I am so grateful for my Lotus family!
Helping others achieve healing for issues such as physical stress or anxiety is what I love to do! Especially since I have experienced difficult times personally. But through massages, essential oils, and more, I have learned how to overcome my own anxiety and stress. Sharing these healing methods with every client is so rewarding and amazing! I often hear from previous clients how their quality of life has improved through my work, making my job even more rewarding over time.
Pushing others to feel better through my work is something I have always enjoyed. In my past, I served as a pharmacy technician for five years. While serving in this profession, I also practiced helping others through massages. Every day I have the opportunity to see how much massages can improve one's quality of life. All in an all-natural and amazing way. Getting to be a part of this process is such an exciting journey! Previously, my clients have commented that I am a " Ray of sunshine, a warm and bubbly person who enjoys making others smile". It is so much fun to help others feel better and get to know each client on a personal level as well.
I have always loved helping others feel better about themselves, which is why I chose to go to cosmetology school. I enjoyed learning how to perfect the art of hairstyles, color, and so much more. I have also developed the skills to help others relax through massages and nails. It is great to see others take the opportunity to have their stress relieved and enjoy the feeling of a new start with a new look! Oftentimes, my clients transform into great friends too, which is an above and beyond amazing perk of being a spa and hair technician.
