Marianna was born and raised on the island of Crete in Greece where, at a young age, she began learning the natural skin care and healing modalities of that land from the women in her family and her community. In her early twenties, she left for London to start her journey to becoming a master esthetician. In London, Marianna honed her skills in the famous Mayfair district, where her clients were among the city’s elite, including duchesses and the head of Vogue London. She continued her education and development in France throughout the time she was living in London, giving her a more expansive knowledge and expertise in the methods being practiced across Europe during that time.
Sasha, Marianna’s son, designed and oversaw the construction of the new facility in 2005, and has been managing the spa ever since. Raised in the suburbs of Toronto, Ontario, Sasha came to Boulder to attend the University of Colorado where he received a Bachelor of Science degree in Marketing. He later returned to C.U. for his Masters in Business Administration with an emphasis in Finance. Sasha’s diverse professional background in business, finance, development, and small business management are the perfect compliment to Marianna’s breadth of medical spa expertise. Together they make a formidable, warm, and welcoming pair, running the spa as an extension of themselves and of their family.
Sandy Baisley attended the College of International Esthetics in Arvada, Colorado where she attained her esthetician training along with specialized certifications in microdermabrasion and chemical peels. Sandy has had a wide range of experience in the spa atmosphere and has developed into a well-versed esthetician whose diverse knowledge guides her in meeting the unique needs of each individual client.
Raised in Maine, Sandy has lived in Boulder for the past ten years. She is thrilled to be working with and learning from Marianna and to be furthering her expertise in the skincare field.
Tara Terrones received her degree in aesthetics in 2008 and has been practicing ever since. At the age of 15, Tara developed Grade-3 acne, sparking her interest in skin care, and passion for helping people change their skin for the better. Tara’s experience and skills are diverse, and include her specialization in laser treatments (acne, hair reduction, skin rejuvenation) and lash extensions.
As a 5th generation member of a family that planted its roots in this state, Tara has lived here in the Denver metropolitan area for all of her life, and is a truly proud Coloradan. She understands the unique, arid climate of our state, which we love so much, but which also comes with its skin care challenges, and uses this innate knowledge to address her individual clients’ needs. Tara joined our team here at Marianna's in 2013, and completed her initial advanced aesthetics training with Marianna later that same year.
