Meet Tess

They say, “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.” So, that’s what I did. My passion for skincare came from a very young age, when I struggled with acne. In 2000, I became a licensed esthetician, and in 2003, I graduated from the Boulder College of Massage Therapy.


My goal when opening Holistica, was to create a space where people could experience a wide range of modalities, outside of a typical spa setting. The experience that I offer you is personalized, and ritualistic. I offer my time, my presence and recommendations that pull from my expertise in many areas.

After 20 years of studying the science of the skin, the magic of plants, and the wonders of the human body, I still love what I do, and look forward to connecting with you in the space that I have created at Holistica.

I am a Colorado native and busy mom with an entrepreneurial spirit that I inherited from my father. I love my family (including my dog Bear, who also doubles as my office partner). I have a passion for cooking, nutrition, herbal medicine, the theatre, animals, the ocean, and journeying around this amazing planet we call Mother Earth.
