Marcy Kollin, Licensed Cosmetologist


“Hi, my name is Marcy! I specialize in creating looks that fit each client’s life and style. My favorite thing to do in the art of cosmetology is to bring out a person’s natural beauty by picking cuts and colors that complement his or her face shape and skin tone. I am a great listener and make sure everyone who sits in my chair is my number one priority!


I love doing what I do because I get to make people feel good about themselves from the moment they come in until the moment they leave. I have had a passion for hair since I was a little girl and took it to the next level by attending Capri Cosmetology. I continue my education by keeping up with the latest trends and styles and attending

regular classes.

Eric Scherer, Licensed

Massage Therapist


I started my career in massage therapy in 2018 to help others feel the best they can feel, I specialize in sports massage and deep tissue work.
I use a mixture of Swedish, sports and deep tissue to help my clients release tension and soreness while also helping them unwind and relax.
I like to integrate stretches and/or cupping to help promote blood flow and smooth out muscle tissue, creating lasting effects for better day to day movement!
