Meet The Spa Manager of New Age Wellness Center
- Ciara Weiss
I recently had the opportunity to sit down with Ciara & ask a few questions about her position as the Spa Manager of New Age Wellness Center in American Fork...
- Hired as a Receptionist & quickly promoted to Front-end Manager, Ciara worked her way up the ladder to become Spa Manager at the young age of 22! She's a true go-getter & a hard worker who, I might add, is also a full-time student at UVU majoring in communications. Ciara's management career is approaching the two year mark with the company & she has been a major contributor to the phenomenal 5-Star Google review rating of New Age ... Over 240 wowed customers when I checked last ...

One of my first questions for Ciara was about her field of study in Communications & if it has helped her as a Woman in the management world... here's what she had to say: - "I could not have chosen a better major! I've always loved people, so improving my communication style & my interpersonal relationships was, and still is, a lifetime goal of mine. The curriculum has strengthened my abilities & taught me effective communication skills on a much higher level than I ever imagined. In the management world, being understood is vital to leading a team of employees to shine in what they do. I'm very happy with my major & attending UVU; it was a good choice for me & my career path !" - https://www.uvu.edu/comm/
One of the hardest things about Ciara's role as the Spa Manager is discovering the best communication style for each unique personalty type of those she supervises & mentors. Managing L.M.T.'s & front desk employees plus the spa attendants too, all different in how they respond best to coaching, sure throws a curve ball into the work day. "Everyone responds to me differently," Ciara said. The staff doesn't realize this, but Ciara sure does. Having to change up her approach & critique methods in order to bring out the best in each of the 20+ awesome staff members she oversees... what a job that must be! I sure struggle with being critiqued in certain ways myself, so I know it can't be easy to always find the right words.
On a more positive note, Ciara & I talked about what her favorite part of the work day is at New Age Wellness & as a manager. Here's what she had to say about that: - "My favorite part of the work day is being around all of the different clients & staff that come in every day. It feels like a big happy family around here with monthly members who love this place & the staff that services them. I feel so blessed that I get to work alongside kind & uplifting people who are all so grateful for New Age Wellness & the impact we are making on their lives."
Ciara, being such a young Woman in the management world, I had to ask her for any words of "work wisdom" she has gained & would like to share with other Women... Here's her advice: - "Be confident, be patient & be willing. Be confident in yourself & your abilities. We, as Women, must never doubt ourselves & give into feelings of inadequacy in the business world. You are so much more than you think you are or often are made out to be. Be patient with yourself as you're learning & growing. Especially be willing to embrace new skills & to be critiqued in order to improve. I believe, if you can do these things, it allows management & company owners to see your talents & it will make getting along with those around you a lot easier & more enjoyable."
Ciara's long term goals as a Woman in the management world is to keep learning & mastering skills that will benefit not only her career, but herself as a human being. I asked how she felt about being a part of the BIG BOSS corporate world of CEO's & Execs one day & she answered, -"Honestly I'm not sure yet, but I'm very happy with where I'm at now & the progress I'm making today... but I certainly know I have the potential to be a part of that world if I so choose... we will have to wait & see what the future brings for me."
So that's the wrap-up of my interview with Ciara Weiss at New Age Wellness Center in American Fork, Utah. Be sure to check this place out & stop in for an amazing fully customized massage. They have an introductory price for first timers of just $45 & float tank specials on Groupon to try out "sensory deprivation" ... something I'll be doing a write up on soon.
