Read the Reflections column that features the rest of this interview.

Melinda Taschetta-Millane: What future adaptation do you feel still is necessary for this industry to continue to move forward?

Maritza Rodriguez: I think a more global perspective within the spa industry would make a tremendous impact. It’s not an easy task. There’s not a true source for global representation of who we are as an industry, and I think that’s a challenge. That’s a challenge from a manufacturer, vendor and professional standpoint, because if this is your career and this is what you are dedicating your life to and you want to build, where do you have to go? What are your options on a global level, because people are changing as they are aging. They are looking at other options that are not always U.S.-based. I believe an evolution from a national vision to a more global wellness vision will serve all of us in a positive way. We are fortunate with Pevonia because we’ve got that global perspective from our distributors, but as a whole, the industry doesn’t have that, which would be extremely beneficial.
