Licensed Esthetician, DMK Revision Therapist
Haley provides HydraFacials, Dermaplaning, DMK Treatments, waxing, and so much more. The way she can transform eyebrows is an art form! She become an Esthetician because she’s truly a major beauty lover and skin care junky. Haley loves being able to enhance the beauty of clients and help them build their confidence. She practices her own self care daily with a little morning walk, with her sweet baby girl, Loui (a 4 pound Chihuahua), a cup of coffee, and a quick journal of 10 things she is grateful for. She is a true believer in creating your own life and making it the most positive experience you can. Her favorite treatment at B Well is the HydraFacial. Nothing beats instant results, cleaned pores, and glowy skin. The 716 is her home and she’s happy to be here.
Julia graduated from Continental School of Beauty in 2020 and is certified in lash extensions. She performs a lot of B Well’s booked massages, but can also be found providing facials and waxing clients. She has been passionate about makeup and beauty since she was little and realized as she got older she could turn her passion into a career. Her favorite services here are a signature massage and a lash lift. One product she loves is our Borbaleta Lash Serum. She’ll leave you feeling both relaxed and beautiful! Julia’s own self-care consists of unplugging and doing a face mask. She loves being in the city of good neighbors where everyone is so friendly. She’s happy to have made many connections here as everyone seems to know everyone!
MARY KATE VAN DUSEN
Mary Kate has been a Licensed Esthetician for 6 years and has been spray tanning for over 11 years. She offers facials, HydraFacials, Dermaplaning, spray tans, waxing, and lash lifts. She has always been a lover of all things skin care related. Growing up receiving compliments on her skin (magic serum? sunscreen!) and her friends always asking for makeup advice, it seems she was destined for this career. She absolutely loves helping people look and feel better! Working on solving skin problems and bringing out the glow is one of her favorite things. This is why one of her favorite services is the HydraFacial. She also loves spray tanning and seeing that instant bronze transformation. A nice bonus of working with her clients is the relationships she forms as she gets to be an ear to listen, celebrate their highs in life and support them through tough times. Outside of B Well,one of Mary Kate’s favorite things is her daily walk with her dog, Donavan, and her hubby, Dan. She loves her Peloton/exercise for stress relief. Doing her own at home skin care with some podcasts/meditation is one of her favorite little self care joys. Mary Kate is another one of our staff born and raised here in Buffalo. Getting to enjoy all four seasons here is a gift!
Julie is one of the first smiling faces you’ll see as you enter B Well. One of her favorite things about being a Receptionist at B Well is working with so many wonderful ladies that strive to bring our clients their best in every service we provide. There is nothing better than seeing a client walk out of a massage or facial completely relaxed! She practices her own self-care by working out and fueling her body with healthy food in order to have the energy to care for her family. Her favorite service at B Well is the HydraFacial; it leaves your skin radiant! Julie was born and raised here in Buffalo. With so many great restaurants, friends, people, and, of course, the Bills, she chose to never leave. In her free time, you can find out with her family, likely attending her kids sporting events and school activities.
Laura graduated from the New York Institute of Massage in 2018 with a passion to help others. Since then, she’s become trained in cupping, functional stretching, and CORE Myofasical Therapy. Laura has experienced the benefits of massage therapy firsthand after a car accident left her with whiplash. Now, she finds it rewarding to help facilitate people on their journey to feel and move better. Her medium-deep pressure is beneficial to those looking for a therapeutic massage to target trigger points and bound up fascia and muscles. She continues to practice her own self-care through massage, acupuncture, and chiropractic work, in addition to dynamic stretching, yoga, self-myofascial release using massage balls, and strength and conditioning workouts. Her favorite treatment is obviously a therapeutic massage with cupping (she may be a bit biased), but she also has come to love HydraFacials and dermaplaning. Laura’s favorite products are our mushroom tinctures (cerebrum by Anima Mundi and 11:11 by rainbo). She also loves our Botnia Clarity Oil and the COSMEDIX Crystal Eye Serum. Laura enjoys the amazing 716 community. GO BILLS!
Sara has been a Massage Therapist for almost 5 years now. She combines both her knowledge for anatomy and passion for energy work into every massage. She sees massage as a way to help naturally heal the body and love to help her clients escape their day-to-day stress. Her specialties are shoulder and neck injuries; the balance between the muscles that hold together your shoulder joint intrigues her and even says it’s like playing Where’s Waldo in the muscles! She practices self-care by taking care of her numerous animals, cooking and going to the gym. Sara’s favorite service here at B Well is of course massages. She can never pass up a good scalp massage! Sara is also obsessed with the drink cooler, where we offer numerous drinks that she calls meditation in a bottle. Born and raised in 716, Sara is a foodie (and previous pastry chef!) who loves all the amazing restaurants here in buffalo. Her personal favorite is Casa Azul. Their tacos are to die for!
Seeing Dakota’s face when you first enter B Well is always a delight! She has been a part of the B Well team for over a year and half and loves being able to see all your lovely faces and work with the best group of women. Getting to see the glow on everyone’s face when they come out of treatment rooms is simply the best. She’s enjoyed her experience here so much that she has now applied to esthetics school so that she, too, can make people that happy and confident one day! Dakota has her associate degree in Dietetics. She believes it’s extremely important to take care of your body and skin from the inside out. She practices self-care by getting monthly massages and facials, as well as making sure she is eating and drinking things that will benefit her body. Her favorite products at B Well are the Chaga Mushroom Tea from Life Itself and the Borboleta Lash Serum. They are serious game changers. Dakota loves the energy here in the 716 and is proud to call this her home!
Receptionist, Institute for Integrative Nutrition Certified Health and Wellness Coach
After spending 20+ Years in the Corporate IT World, Shari felt it was time for a change. She started a Wellness and Weightloss Journey to improve her personal health and lost 50+ pounds, which led to her desire to become certified in Health and Nutrition. After working one on one with clients and co-founding a Corporate Wellness Program, Shari took a step back to re-evaluate her direction, and it brought her B Well! She recognizes that health and wellness isn’t only about food and moving your body; it’s about taking care of yourself mentally. This industry is that for her. To maintain her own self-care, Shari works out regularly, eats well, and takes care of her skin and body. Her favorite treatments here at B Well are the Hydrafacial, Cupping, and a Deep Tissue Massage. DMK are her skin care products of choice. She does a DMK at home mask religiously once a week. She is a mother of 2 girls (can you guess one of them?) and 2 fur babies. Fun fact: She is the author of a published children’s book! The 716 is her home; you can’t find people anywhere else like you find here.
