Katia Sandoval is a licensed skincare therapist and founder of LuvYaSkin. She has worked in many spas with a variety of products, providing clients of every lifestyle and skin and body type the finest products and homecare regimens, personalized for their unique skin needs. Invigorating their well-being, allowing them to look and feel beautiful, she ignites a sense of inner and outer self satisfaction as she shares her expert knowledge and skin-hugging advice for a powerful, proven difference in appearance and vitality.
“You will experience a noticeable rejuvenation inside and outside your precious skin, fully awakened and ready to begin your Luv Ya lifestyle!”
While attending the Inter-American University of Puerto Rico, Katia modeled to pay for her studies and graduated with a Bachelors degree in Business Administration, emphasis in Human Resources. After the birth of her son, as an ex-model and new mom, there were times she felt beautiful and glamorous but also times she felt quite the opposite, often satisfying everyone's needs but her own, neglecting precious time to replenish her own self being. After some life changing events, being a single mom, she took the plunge and went back to school and obtained her skin therapist license at Florida College of Natural Health.
“Perseverance and determination is the key in life. Weave your legacy into the lives of others. Let challenges prepare you for extraordinary destiny. Savor and remember the moments.”
Her extensive Spa and Salon odyssey includes ARUJ, Miami, FL, as Skincare Specialist, treating facial skin to maintain and improve appearance, and using specialized techniques, products, peels and masks, including waxing for body and facial hair removal.
At Utopia, Coral Gables, FL, Katia was Salon Supervisor, offering sales of products, services, and memberships to fulfill customer needs. For Elemis Spa, Coral Gables, FL, she was a specialist in sales and product recommendations, assuring proper care and use.
In addition to working with leading product lines, she is licensed in Body Wrapping and completed Spa Therapy training by Wilma Schumann and Parafango by Anesi.
Katia was born and raised in NYC and currently indulges in all the sun-filled pleasures of Miami Florida.
