Like a true community, let's make meaningful connections. Aimed at helping ISPA members discover each other, share one another's passions and inspirations, and hopefully kick-start warm introductions among peers, this section called Social Connections is all about building bridges. Share your passion with Pulse and see yourself featured in this section. SOCIAL CONNECTIONS 1. BOOK CURRENTLY READING: Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking by Susan Cain. It’s so hard to find real quiet time in this day and age. Ah, the beautiful world of spa helps with that! Lenette Casper PRESIDENT PHYTOMER GROUP BRANDS SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH 2. FAVORITE TRAVEL DESTINATION: Lake Powell— 1 what a magical place to me. I love the contrast between the desert red rocks and the lake. Nothing beats having fun playing water sports all day then camping out at night seeing the billions of beautiful stars cascading across the sky with the tall cliffs and alcoves amidst them. It’s one of my favorite places to go on vacation. 3. MOST USED APP(S): Zappos. Not sure if it’s my most used app, but I can’t resist a cute pair of shoes! 4. INSPIRATIONAL LEADER OR BUSINESS ICON: My mother, Anneli Johnson, is truly an inspirational leader and business icon in my life. Though very feminine, sweet and kind, she has been courageous all her life. She served on the army payroll at age 13, played on an all boys hockey team as a teenager and the list goes on. As an esthetician and massage therapist in Finland, she immigrated to the United States in 1963 as a single mother of three little girls to start a new life. She was and is always such an inspiration, has helped so many people, and loved what she did (and still does at 91 years of age). It was her influence that sparked a true love and admiration within me for the spa industry. 2 5. CAN’T-LIVE-WITHOUT ACCESSORY: I can’t live 3 4 without a really good facial moisturiz er and my hair brush. 6. FAVORITE SPA TREATMENT: Nothing beats a 5 SOCIAL CONNECTIONS: good detoxifying seaweed wrap followed by a relaxing massage. You feel so clean, relaxed, yet energized afterwards! FAVORITE CHARITY/CAUSE TO SUPPORT: I love supporting causes that help children, battered women and families. phytomerusa.com ONE SUPERPOWER YOU’D LOVE TO HAVE: If I @PhytomerUSA @PhytomerUSA Phytomer USA 6 had a super power, I would like to have super intelligence. If you have that, you can figure out how to accomplish almost everything else, right? FAVORITE “ME” TIME ACTIVITY: Enjoying the outdoors, whether it’s going for a hike or climb in the mountains, a walk in the neighborhood or sitting outside on the patio enjoying a good book while listening to the birds chirping in the background. ■ May 2017 ■ PULSE 71
