Spa Director, Estancia La Jolla Hotel and Spa, La Jolla, California
Originally from Mexico, Brisa grew up watching her grandparents cure ailments with herbs, compresses and tonics. Brisa would see results from these natural cures and it was these real life experiences which introduced her to the spa industry 18 years ago. Since that time, she has worked with Starwood Hotels and Resorts, where she was at a celebrity favorite Spa Mystique in Los Angeles, as well as Destination Hotels & Resorts.
As the Spa Director at The Estancia La Jolla Hotel & Spa, Brisa has gone to great lengths to ensure that each service on the spa menu has “purpose and integrity”. As a holistic nutritionist, Brisa believes that wellness is about more than just the body, and ensures that the mind and soul are integrated into all of the services and treatments offered at The Spa. She has proudly helped launch Estancia’s wellness and recreation programs for corporate and social groups of all sizes.
Brisa’s passion is to bring awareness to others about the choices they make every day regarding their body, mind and environment and how one choice can affect their entire being. She strongly believes that “we reap what we sow.” Ensuring a safe and healthy planet for children helps drive Brisa to do her part, passionately, to protect our resources.
