Rediscover Your True Radiance


Kara faced and overcame her own self esteem issues when it came to the management of her skin and wanted to share the impact skincare made on her with anyone facing similar issues. So, she continued her education and went on to attend NYIB, graduating in 2008. That same year, Kara took the bold, brave risk and opened her own two treatment room spa as the only therapist. Fifteen years, two locations, twenty two therapists later and with hard work and dedication, her dreams have come true.

In her spare time, Kara likes spending time with her family and friends, being active outdoors, traveling, and great food and wine. She is beyond grateful to all of her supportive and loving clients, family, and friends for their continued trust and loyalty, and looks forward to the coming years and serving all of the valued clients of KarasMatic Day Spa, present and future.
