Guinevere grew up in small town New England and began her migration south immediately after high school, when she moved to Virginia to attend James Madison University, from there she moved to Atlanta GA. While in Atlanta, she discovered her love of client relations during the decade she spent in the corporate marketing and advertising world. She eventually left to pursue an entrepreneurial career in Real Estate, the personal one-on-one aspect of matching clients to the home of their dreams was a dream job. In 2014 Guin and her husband moved to Austin for a change of pace and new opportunities. Soon after finding their home, they had two children in quick succession.
Guin met Sydney years ago and admired her ability to bring out the inner beauty in others. That was a pull too strong to resist. One day after a treatment with Sydney, she asked; “So how can I get to stay here all day long with you guys?” Guin loved the energy at Muse MedSpa and wanted to be a part of a place where clients walked out feeling special and valued. That transformative experience is what drew Guin to Muse MedSpa and why she takes pleasure in working to ensure the client engagement is always first and foremost. We could not be happier that she is part of our team and clients love her just as much as we do.
When not welcoming clients at Muse, Guin enjoys spending time with her two toddlers and husband, reading a good book or going to spin class. She loves spending time outdoors; the hike and bike trail and Zilker Park are family favorites.
