Patty Field, Spa Director, Raindance Spa

“I had the pleasure of adopting Rianna as my mentor when I first became a Spa Director. My first Spa was 20,000 sq.ft. and 41 treatment rooms. Rianna was running her own spa at the time, yet she never made me feel as though she didn't have the time or interest to take me under her wing. She introduced me to key people in the industry, shared her challenges and solutions to issues I may confront, and encouraged me to attend conferences and to network as often as I could. Her direction and devotion to my success aided in just that. I succeeded! She is extremely knowledgeable, professional, compassionate and I hope to continue to work in the industry with her no matter what that connection may be.”
