Why Did I Start A Spray Tan Business

SunSpray was started in 2001 as a way to spend time with other adult ladies when my guys were little. My answer to putting my career as a network engineer on hold to do that momma thing.

So I Could Work From Home

Becoming an entrepreneur and opening a spray tanning business was and still is the best choice I could have made to work around my families’ crazy schedule.

My little shop has since grown (along with the kiddos) into a bustling boutique business serving an amazing group of ladies seeking out tans for:

  • everyday color
  • weddings
  • pageants
  • formal events
  • photos
  • dances
  • vacations

My goal is to have each and every one of my amazing clients leave me feeling beautiful like they have just spent time with a new friend (because they have), and that they have a smile on their face ready to take on the rest of their day.

That’s what I call feeling LOVED.

With 19 years in the Sunless tanning industry, I have the experience and artistic touch to create your perfect color.

You are at the right place if you want:

  • Luxurious organic sunless tanning formulas
  • Artistic application methods
  • Coordinating services to meet your skincare needs
  • Love and care for your tanning experience
  • Private spa-like environment

A little bit about me

I’m a wife to a Southern charmer and proud Momma to two amazing boys plus two really cool bonus kids. 2+2=4

I have a couple of degrees in techy computer stuff from the University of Toledo and when I’m not working with clients or writing for my blogs, I can be found enjoying my local farmers market (Stevens Gardens in Monclova, OH is my favorite), digging in my garden, or driving my kids crazy with typical “mom” text messages:

  • Where are you?
  • When are you coming home?
  • Did you eat a vegetable today?

Adult kid MOM statements :

  • What do you mean you are flying to Amsterdam?
  • When did you get another dog?
  • No, I can’t help you move AGAIN!

And yes I still love puppies and kitties and all things PINK, quilts, my garden, smelly boys and making homemade jam.

…..I’ve been known to wander my garden in my PJ’s looking for tasty things to eat.
