Aloha! My name is Carolyn. I grew up in Wisconsin and when I was 15 I started my career in the hospitality field. I was drawn to the field because I love helping others feel welcome, enjoy new life experiences, and take time to relax and unwind and escape their busy lives. After graduating in 2006 with a Degree in Hotel/Restaurant Management and completing an internship I gained experience by working in a resort primarily in the housekeeping division and then moved on primarily working in the rooms division/ front desk with Hilton. After building up experience I decided to move to Phoenix to enjoy warm and sunny weather and leave the Wisconsin winters behind.
It was here in Phoenix where I completed my Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management and gained more experience in front desk positions for Hilton. I soon after discovered my love and passion for yoga, hiking, and day trips of exploration around the state. I also met a lot of people who exposed me into the realm of healthy eating and wellness. I stumbled across a part-time job for a massage clinic and after experiencing all the life-changing benefits of massage and working with therapists and hearing the testimonials of what massage can do I really became a firm believer that massage is a such a key component of providing rest, relaxation, rejuvenation, alleviating stress, and the list continues. I recently came back from my second trip to Hawaii and realized how much I love the culture. I feel honored to be a part of the Hawaiian Experience Spa Ohana and hope to meet you soon.
