Owner / Esthetician
Julie founded Pure Bliss Spa & Shop in Spring of 2007. Julie was inspired by her aunt, Julie Pagano, who was an esthetician and makeup artist in Brevard, NC. Upon seeing the fulfillment and peace that her Aunt Julie received from not only making others feel better but also enhancing their quality of life, Julie decided to embark on a career in the field of esthetics and spa management. Julie is a licensed esthetician. It is Julie’s dream to create and maintain a peaceful and unique spa environment for her community, Madison, GA, and the surrounding area.
Licensed Massage Therapist
Kat is a dedicated massage therapist. She obtained her certificate at Augusta School of Massage in 2016. She has since worked with outstanding instructors and has gained experience in myofascial release, burn scar therapy, Spontaneous Muscle Release Technique (SMRT), and Active Isolated Stretching (AIS).
The world of massage has always been a part of Kat's life. Since her father has been a massage therapist for over 30 years, her interest in the field grew as she saw the impact his practice made on his clients. Kat has an intuitive, nurturing but firm touch. She enjoys fitness including hiking and kayaking especially with her family, but her favorite way to spend her downtime is hanging out with her daughter.
Hope joined our team shortly after obtaining her esthetician license at the conclusion of her classroom and hands-on training at Athens Tech in November of 2021. She has acclimated quickly to our process and our clients love her facial and décolleté massage. Hope also specializes and is certified in Dermaplaning, a process that leaves your skin baby soft! Hope is passionate about giving her clients a total relaxation experience in the process of providing all the skin care needs a facial service provides.
