Cheryl has been a New York State Licensed Massage Therapist for more than 20 years. She is also a Licensed Esthetician and a Registered Nurse with an ASN from Samaritan Hospital School of Nursing.
She has professional memberships with Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals while serving as a volunteer Peer Reviewer on the Commission on Massage Therapy Accreditation.
As a native of the Capital Region, Cheryl began her career as a Massage Therapist working at the mineral baths in Saratoga Springs. She became fascinated with their spa history and mineral water treatments. Upon graduating nursing school, she started her own practice working alongside a chiropractor where her clientele included people living with chronic pain conditions and temporary disabilities.
After meeting her husband Craig, she relocated to Manhattan but continued to visit upstate NY as often as possible. They discovered Sharon Springs after a weekend trip and were inspired to purchase and restore a home after just one visit. This special town provided a sense of tranquility and spa history that they both loved. Ten years later, they opened Spring House Spa.
Cheryl was employed for eight years as a senior massage therapist and esthetician at the five-star Mandarin Oriental Hotel Spa New York after several years at the Four Seasons Hotel and Spa. Her experience working in luxury spas and extensive training gave her a foundation and desire to again start her own business.
