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.

Nikkiel enjoys living a health and active lifestyle with her husband and daughter.
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.
Malia Gascon, True To You Beauty
Malia is originally from Hawaii but has lived in the Portland area most of her life. She didn't always know that being an aesthetician was going to be her passion. She was a banker for six years before starting her career as an aesthetician. A simple Lash Lift by Megan would change Malia's direction in life.
Megan and Malia connected from their first meeting, maybe because they share the same birthday! Malia started in the back of the house at Renewal Spa helping with inventory. After some encouragement from Megan, while pregnant with her son Sage, Malia enrolled in school to become an aesthetcian. After taking some time off to be with her son, Malia started at Renewal Spa and Beauty full time in January of 2019.
When she is not at the spa, she loves spending time outdoors with her son and husband. She loves to travel and looks forward to exploring somewhere new each year. Malia has a drive to provide the best skin care services possible and to continue learning all she can about the proper skin care for her clients.
