Why do I enjoy working with Aveda?

Aveda inspires passion! I have not seen a company more in tune with making the Experience for the guest the best they have ever had and striving to create that wonderful experience each and every time. Aveda sources the ingredients of their products responsibly, creating jobs for communities in need and avoiding negative impact to the environment. Aveda provides constant and up to date continuing education, assuring that our guests will always receive the best! I look forward to continuing my journey with Life Salon and Spa as well as Aveda for many more years to come!

About Christina Leavitt

I started my career as a Massage Therapist Three years ago. I am amazed at what I continue to learn in this career path. I have grown so much as a therapist and in my knowledge of essential oils and their benefits since coming to work for Life, a year and three months ago. I Love Aveda from the products to the training and rituals. There is nothing quite like the way you feel after experiencing our rituals.
