“We are excited to welcome Kate to the LIVunLtd team,” said Fletcher Bankson.

“Her years of experience as a spa director and consultant enhances our 360-degree solution for spa and wellness services. Her expertise will be instrumental at every stage of our projects, including feasibility, design consulting, brand development, pre-opening and ongoing management.”
