At home with Cocoon Spa’s Leanne Condina
Director of Cocoon Spa, St Morris.
A career highlight for me would be opening my own day spa, Cocoon Spa in 2010. I also recently won 2018 Director and Business Owner of the Year at the Australian Beauty Industry Awards. This was a real honour for me and gave me the opportunity to celebrate all my hard work and dedication over the years with close family and friends.
