Spa World in the Bahamas is considered the best spa in the Caribbean, and it has been in business for over a century.
The world famous spa, in the capital Nassau, is renowned for its extensive collection of beauty products, and the Spa World Collection is one of the most sought after luxury brands in the world.
However, the brand was once an all-female-owned business and has since changed hands several times.
It all started in 1878 when the first female spa was opened in the United States, and soon, other female-run businesses followed suit, leading to an industry dominated by female-owned businesses.
“I was working in a hotel in New York and I had my eye on the Spa and I thought, ‘This must be what I want to do,'” said Mariah Fagan, a former Spa World beauty assistant who currently works as an employee for the company.
“So I went to the hotel, I looked in the mirror, I thought this must be it.”
Fagan said she had to put up with the indignities that came with her job at the time, including being asked to remove her hair and makeup every few days.
“That’s when I knew I was going to do something,” she said.
“It wasn’t until I was working there for 15 years, and I started getting sick, and then I was diagnosed with cancer, that I finally said, ‘OK, this is the job I want,'” she continued.
“And then it’s been a career, and that’s how I decided to go back and work at Spa World.”
“The Spa is where I started, and this is where it’s going to stay.”
Flynn said she didn’t have any regrets when she returned to the spa after her diagnosis, but she said the brand has had some struggles over the years.
“They’re not doing well,” she explained.
“There’s been some really bad decisions, and when they were bought out by [Monsanto International] they changed the name of the spa to a ‘Monsola’ brand.”

Flynn’s experience with the brand, as well as her other experiences working in the spa, made her feel she had an obligation to bring a positive energy to the brand and its products.
“You never know when a new owner comes in and changes something, and you’re not sure if that’s going get me to the top or not,” Flynn said.
The spa’s history goes back more than a century, and is one that is a constant theme for the brand.
Fagan, who has been working as an assistant beauty assistant for the spa for seven years, has worked at SpaWorld for seven of those years.
She said she has a special relationship with the company’s founder, Mary Ann Boulter, as she grew up near the resort.
“She was the first lady of the Bahamas, and she is the first beauty queen of the world, and all the ladies there,” Fagan said.
“She’s been with the Spa for so many years.
I’ve always felt a responsibility to do my best to make it the best, and make it a place that everyone wants to be.”
She said Boulters personality is always there, and has a deep understanding of the brand’s history and what it has become.
“Her heart is always in the right place and she has been very supportive of me as an owner, and so I’m really grateful for that,” she added.
Ferry said it’s not uncommon for her to spend hours at the spa in a day, or more.
“If you’re working in it, it’s really not a vacation, it is a work environment,” she continued, adding that she has had to deal with other women working in other jobs as well.
“But the main thing is I like to get to work and do my work, and not worry about the other ladies, and they are always there,” she stated.
Fisher said she’s always been a little bit intimidated when she first arrived, but now that she’s back at work, she feels comfortable and comfortable about it.
“Now I have a great experience, and a great opportunity, and there are some amazing people working in this business, and we just have to make the best of it,” she concluded.
