Hold onto a Vision
Florida Spa Association 2017 Visionary Award Winner
Congratulations to Ilana Moses, Founder and CEO of Florida Spa Association (FSA), who was honestly surprised when her team proudly honored her with the 2017 Visionary Award at the FSA-hosted Orlando Museum of Art event on January 24th. This 2017 Visionary Award was presented for her desire and dedication to create an organization that would unite spa and industry professionals in Florida. Her dream, which started in 2008, was to build a spa family! Today, the FSA is known for its successful events and relationship-building platform.
This new Annual Award program will be given out once a year by the FSA at an event. The FSA plans to present an award for a variety of accomplishments to one deserving member who achieves substantial triumphs within the spa community. These Awards will serve to recognize spa professionals who demonstrate innovative, initiative-driven leadership impacting their environments. All FSA members, both spa leaders and vendors, will be considered for the award each year, ensuring a diverse and educated annual cohort of affiliates whose work is relevant and inspirational.
“I am deeply honored and genuinely humbled by the 2017 Florida Spa Association Visionary Award that I received from my FSA team” says Ilana. “As I begin my 9th year at FSA, I strive to continue to bring the Florida spa community together. This recognition makes my commitment worth every minute dedicated to the FSA. I love our spa industry, our FSA team, and members! Thank you all from the bottom of my heart!”
