Nothing sums up our Salons by JC Superstar, Stephanie Povemba, better than the adage, “If you do what you love, you’ll never work a day in your life.” As the owner of GN Spa at our Danbury, CT location, Stephanie works with clients to give them healthier, radiant skin.
She’s been a skin clinician for the past ten years and prides herself on taking care of her clients like they’re family.
GN Spa’s motto, “We’re Going Places,” literally tells all about Stephanie’s spa business. “I’m a traveling spa, so I do home parties and events at different places. I’ve been to all kinds of birthday parties, sweet sixteen’s, you name it. My clients even take me on vacation with them to their summer homes.”
With a focus on health and luxury, GN Spa’s signature treatment is a European facial massage, with a microdermabrasion to the face, neck, and décolletage. Stephanie also offers body scrubs—and is offering a pumpkin sugar scrub for a limited time for fall.
As a skin clinician, Stephanie specializes in acne treatment. In fact, acne is the reason Stephanie chose this career path. “Eleven years ago, my daughter Brianna had breakouts very young, when she was 10 years old. I tried everything on the market as I watched her hide behind her hair. As a mother, the teasing from the other kids was more than I could bear. So I went to school and learned everything I could about acne, the epidermis, sebum, and oil. My daughter is now 21 and has flawless skin after a very painful adolescence.”
After getting into the field, Stephanie’s mission is to help her clients maintain good skin health to be their best gorgeous. She’s also seen an increasing number of men realizing the importance of taking care of their skin. Stephanie offers relaxing treatments to all of her clients, both male and female.
“I got into the beauty business because I’m a teacher and an educator and I believe deeply in skin wellness.” She participates in continuing education whenever possible and passes that knowledge on to her clients.
“I love being self-employed because I can treat every client like my family. At the end of the day, I can feel great about all the people I helped.” Stephanie appreciates Salons by JC’s warm and friendly team and being able to call all the shots for her business. “With my own business, I can show the true reflection of myself.”
When she’s not at GN Spa, you can find Stephanie antiquing or playing with her dog (and spa mascot), Wesley. But Stephanie’s ultimate hobby? “Continuing education. I’m constantly thirsty to know more in my field. It’s a very exciting time to be in skincare with all of the new, emerging technology. It’s wonderful to teach people how to take care of their skin. I take the time to explain everything to people. I guess you could say it’s kind of like a hobby-career,” she laughs.
We’re thrilled to have such a knowledgeable clinician available for our Danbury, CT location.
