Licensed esthetician Rosie L. Dambruck is the spa director at Hibiscus Spa at the Westin Dawn Beach Resort & Spa in St. Maarten, and has been in the spa and beauty industry for more than 18 years. She considers herself to be a beauty advocate with an eye for detail.
Q: What has been the highlight of your career?
A: “I had an ongoing bylined beauty page for five years in a local Dominican Republic magazine, where I wrote articles about beauty and health. During my career, I also had the pleasure of performing treatments for celebrities in 2009, such as Ananda Lewis, LL Cool J and Mary J. Blige.”
“My dad—he is such an inspiration. He is a poet, so his view of life and perception of beauty inspires me every day.”
Catering to clients
“To stay current, I focus on delivering quality and personalized service to ensure guest satisfaction to go above and beyond, and identify ways to improve a guest’s experience.”
“There are so many treatments that I enjoy, although, facials and aromatherapy massages are at the top.”
“The diversity of the industry and the creative aspects ... I’m mostly inspired by the products out there and my client as a canvas. Often something new inspires me and fuels my passion for my career.”
Life outside of skin care
“My other passion is design and decor, and I have just finished refreshing the Hibiscus Spa treatment rooms at the Westin.”
