Rebecca Johnston
Spa Executive Director/Lead Esthetician
A life-long commitment to health and wellness led Rebecca into esthetics. She found the perfect arena to blend art and science with creativity and beauty, and has been recognized locally and nationally as an award-winning skin care specialist. With a vision and commitment to age-less living she has been refining leading edge protocols that rebuild the skin non-aggressively. Biologique Recherche of Paris has named Rebecca a Premier American Esthetician, and in 2012 she was awarded the Best of Colorado Springs for “Life Changing Facial.” Rebecca has earned the widely respected “Expert” certification from the Ambassade de la Beauté in Paris, studying both skin care and body treatments and continues to study the constantly evolving world of esthetics. Establishing an integrated Spa and Wellness Center has been her dream since she first entered this field and she is thrilled to be a part of Garden of the Gods Club and Resort's Spa development. As Executive Director of the Spa she will develop programs and training to establish the Spa as a center for ageless health and beauty.
