CO OWNER & BUSINESS OPERATIONS
Steve and former wife Cindi founded The Sanctuary Spa in 2009. Over time, it was our team’s dream to develop a medical spa to be able to provide more advanced skin and health care services producing the highest quality and natural looking results. This dream became reality when Ritual Med Boutique was officially organized in 2021. After months of planning and developing a team of experienced medical, aesthetic, and permanent make-up professionals, Ritual officially opened its doors to serve patients May 4, 2022.
Steve has spent his entire career in financial services, primarily as a certified public accountant and more recently a financial advisor. When not working, he enjoys time at home with his wife Dawn, golfing, traveling, spending time with family and friends, and enjoying life to the fullest.
Steve is excited to be part of the Ritual team. We have put together a great team who truly cares and supports each other. Each shares a single vision of treating every patient as the most important patient of their day, listening intently to their needs, and developing personal and trusted relationships.

Courtney’s favorite services to perform include chemical peels, microneedling, and lip filler.
AESTHETIC NURSE INJECTOR
Kylie is ecstatic to bring her 10 years of versatile patient care experience to Ritual Med Boutique. Over the past two years, while specializing in aesthetic nursing, her passion for all things beauty and skincare has driven her to boost her patient’s confidence by enhancing their already natural beauty. A few of Kylie’s favorite treatments are chemical peels, Halo laser, Botox, and dermal fillers – specifically lips and cheeks. Her at-home can’t live without skin care ingredients are retinol + SPF.
PERMANENT MAKEUP AND AESTHETICIAN
Myka has had a lifelong love of all things beauty. Her journey into the cosmetics industry began while being a makeup artist for three years at Bobbi Brown Cosmetics. Myka decided to pursue her dreams and go back to school to learn about esthetics at Capri College. She started her professional career at our sister spa, The Sanctuary, in 2019. She has since become a licensed esthetician, nail technician, as well as becoming a permanent makeup artist.
LICENSED DENTAL HYGENIST
Dawn has had a passion for everything beauty and fashion since her teen modeling days. Her compassion for people and her love of science drew her to a 25-year career in dentistry as a dental hygienist. She found great joy in improving her patient’s smiles and in turn their confidence.
Dawn has been with The Sanctuary Spa in guest services and management since 2015.
Dawn’s love of the spa has prompted her to change her career path to be further involved in the family business. She has continued her journey in beauty and healthcare by obtaining a license in esthetics.

Advanced facials, microneedling, dermaplaning and laser hair removal are a few services she offers. Providing patient comfort and relaxation with a beautiful result is her priority.
