Cindy, Jack and Catherine James
Cindy James and her kids Jack and Catherine are the proud owners of Our Family Spa. As a single working mom, Cindy was always struggling to find a way to get to the spa for some much-needed relaxation. There never seems to be enough time for Mom, right? And finding a babysitter is an expensive hassle at best. She knew how wonderful it would be to have babysitting right on site at the spa.
And on top of that, her kids love to get massages too- but most spas don’t allow kids! Thus was Our Family Spa born. Cindy is very passionate about bringing families together while increasing their well-being and having fun!
