With nearly 20 years of experience in the nursing profession, Cindy Tusa has long since established herself as a professional with strong values as they pertain to customer service, quality, and education. After 5 years of critical care nursing at The Children’s Hospital of Colorado, Cindy transferred to Poudre Valley Hospital to work in the Neonatal ICU. She thrived at both hospitals as her passion for excellent patient care, compassionate care of the parents, and her desire to improve extremely stressful events for families was realized. Having been in leadership positions at both hospitals, and with a strong passion for education, Cindy naturally gravitated to the Clinical Educator position in the NICU in 2007.
The eight years she spent in this role taught Cindy a tremendous amount about the value of quality education. Without a strong foundation, no one is able to develop into the best care provider they can be, much less maximize their full potential in any endeavor they may undertake.
As growth and change are a natural aspect of life, Cindy found herself seeking and learning about interests separate from the hospital. Her interest in leading a vibrant and healthy life mysteriously directed her into the path of esthetics. What a joy! As we all know, beauty truly comes from within, but what a wonderful gift to be able to assist other people interested in enhancing their own beauty. Be it skin care, skin treatments, nutrition, or stress management, we all can use a little support and education in order to be the best we can be!
The White Magnolia Day Spa and Advanced Skin Care Institute is the perfect vehicle for Cindy to get to realize her passions and dreams! The Spa provides Cindy the opportunity to engage with clients, mentor staff, and create a destination for healing and rejuvenation we all so desperately need. The Institute allows Cindy to further her passion for education to develop high quality, detail oriented, professional, and critically thinking estheticians. By having the Institute in the Spa, the students learn firsthand how a thriving business with real clients feels in order to better prepare them for success after graduation. The benefits for the students, staff, and clients alike are endless!
