Lynne McNees, president of the International Spa Association (ISPA), has announced the new ISPA Board of Directors and officers for 2023.

The ISPA board will be led by chair Patrick Huey – general manager of We Care Spa – with Kelleye Martin, spa director of Trellis, The Spa at The Houstonian, serving as vice chair.

Meanwhile, Michelle Adams Somerville – executive VP of operations and engagement for the Woodstock Inn and Resort – will serve as secretary/treasurer.

“Interest in board service continues to grow each year, and we’re grateful for the commitment made by these volunteer leaders to help guide our association forward and pursue our vision of elevating the spa industry to new heights,” said McNees.

ISPA has also welcomed three new members and two returning directors to the board:

• Jessica Timberlake, owner, Jessica L Timberlake Consulting.

According to ISPA, this board elect was selected from a large slate of candidates following an extensive nomination and interview process.

In addition to the board elect and returning officers, eight board members will continue to serve their terms:

• CG Funk, senior vice president of culture and industry relations, Massage Heights Corporate.
• Dawn MacLellan, director of wellness, aquatics and youth, The Landings Golf and Athletic Club.
