Today we’d like to introduce you to Katelyn Weikart.
Alright, so thank you so much for sharing your story and insight with our readers. To kick things off, can you tell us a bit about how you got started?
I started off as a massage therapist in 2007. After one of the spas that I was employed at shut down due to lack of management, I approached the general manager of the resort and gave him a proposal to rent the space and run the business myself. With only a couple of years of experience underneath my belt as a massage therapist, facial specialist and nail technician, I fumbled my way through the first year learning by my mistakes. I have then since grown to two beautiful spa locations and scouting out locations for my third. I use my attention to detail in customer service to make sure that every single guest of mine is thrilled with their Treatments. My staff and I have a combination of over 70 years of experience in the spa industry. It is my absolute pleasure to relax, restore, and renew every single client that steps through my doors.
I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey has been a fairly smooth road?
If you have any business owner telling you that it’s a smooth ride from the very beginning, they’re lying to you. There are ups and downs, just like life itself. The Lows you wonder if it’s worth keeping the doors open and just shut down because that would be easiest. The highs you can’t believe what you’re doing to help people in your lifetime. Even at my lowest time in the spa, it’s all worth it if I can make one client feel better, whether it’s the perfect polish on their nails or their feet. Or it is relieving that frozen shoulder that’s been bothering them for years upon years.
We’ve been impressed with Cenoté Day Spa, but for folks who might not be as familiar, what can you share with them about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
We are a local resort style day spa located in Davenport, Florida with one location at Bahama Bay resort and one located at Regal Palms Resort. We offer massage therapy, skincare services, manicures and pedicures, and more! We are proud to carry CND nail specialty products. Our facials proudly feature Control Corrective, which is a skincare line dedicated to driving instant results. We also offer unique services such as Fasciablasting which restores connective tissue.
What would you say have been one of the most important lessons you’ve learned?
I’ve learned to listen more than anything even though I feel like I am right about a lot of things I like to listen to my staff and I want to listen to my clients about suggestions. Whether it’s a new service that we offer or a different way of doing a protocol, I like to actively listen to what is being suggested to me.
