owner, Licensed Esthetician
Being inspired by other strong small business owners in her life, Megan combined her love for the industry and her savvy business sense and opened the "doors" to Renewal Spa & Beauty in December of 2017.
After a ground breaking year, Megan envisioned bigger and better things for her supportive and loving clients. In January of 2018, Megan acquired her first independent Brick & Mortar location in West Linn, Oregon.
Megan's vision for Renewal has always been to create a place where clients can feel at home and have access to all things beauty. Instead of hiring beauty professionals to work under her, Megan has hand picked her Renewal Tribe and given them the space and opportunity to thrive as individuals in their own businesses. You can take comfort in knowing every beauty professional that works at Renewal has been carefully selected by Megan.
When she is not at the spa, Megan can be found at home or in the garden with her husband and two young kids. This West Linn native and graduate has always had a passion for beauty and self-care. You can also find her out on the river or enjoying a quiet night in.
Christa Varela, The Bunny Beauty Bar
Christa Varela was raised in West Linn, Oregon. After high school graduation, she was employed as a caregiver for Alzheimer's patients. This was the beginning of Christa's passion for helping people. Since then Christa has worked as a teaching assistant for special needs and has been a server in the Lake Oswego area for the past 6 years.
Owning a business and helping people has been Christa's dream since her first caregiving job. Christa and Megan were good friends in high school and after reconnecting post the birth of her second baby, she was inspired to get her Esthetician license and combine her love of brows and helping people into a career.
When Christa is not with clients (or researching all things beauty!) you can find her with husband and two kids. Christa enjoys cooking with her husband, traveling and going on family walks. She looks forward to always continuing her education and offering the best cruelty free options for her clients while making them feel their best.
