“I’ve known Mia since she launched Arizona Spa and Wellness Association nearly five years. Her collaborative approach to wellness allows professionals outside the spa industry an equal voice, facilitating meaningful dialogue with tourism partners, hospitality professionals and community stakeholders that generate cooperation and partnerships. Mia is a true leader – always on the cusp of innovation and ready to roll up her sleeves to advance the business of well-being.”
“I became the new Arizona Account Manager for Phytomer in January of this year. The entire territory was new to me, as I moved here to Phoenix from Salt Lake City, UT. I reached out to Mia and she returned my email with the most welcoming phone call I could have ever hoped for! Mia has introduced me to many new spas that she thinks Phytomer would be a great fit in, she has also helped me meet a wide variety of people within the spa community which has allowed me to start building relationships of my own. I am very excited to continue attending cocktail mixers, luncheons and events that Mia organizes!”

I could not be more sincere in saying that joining the Arizona Spa and Wellness Association has been the absolutely best decision I have made since moving to Arizona. I could have never dreamed of a the association being so incredibly helpful and welcoming.”

Suzanne Landvatter, Phytomer U.S.A.
“I have had the pleasure of working with Mia when I was a Spa Director in AZ a few years ago and now as a vendor. I am so happy to be a part of such a great association again!”

“Great association. Provides useful information about industry trends and is an excellent networking tool for industry professionals in Arizona.”
“I was very impressed with the Arizona Spa & Wellness Conference. I have spoken at nearly 250 different venues around the world…what impressed me at this conference was how the event flowed throughout the day with speakers and events right on time. This is rare for conferences. Also, I enjoyed the little cards that were on the table identifying each speaker and the program that provided details. I enjoyed the lecture area as well as the lunch area on the grass. This was very professional, run on time and you could feel the love. Congratulations to all who made this possible. Love and light, Steven Ross”

“The inaugural AZ Spa & Wellness Association event was fantastic! The information presented was great, the people who attended was the exact right mix, the energy both inside the room and at the networking times was very warm/powerful, CG Funk was a great emcee and obviously last, but not least, Mia’s leadership and passion shined through. When is the next one? I’m coming for sure!”
