MEET THE TEAM

Anna Holm
Founder


Anna started her journey at the Majestic 10 years ago working as an Esthetician. She and her husband, Ben, took over ownership of the spa in 2011 and have grown the business into an award-winning destination. Healing has always been her passion and by building an amazing spa team she is able to reach a larger audience. Inspiring people to be the best version of themselves is what she strives for. They are now the proud owners of The Apothecary Wellness Center and Spa, the second location in Burlington. The spa and wellness center is the perfect setting to help facilitate health, healing and happiness.

Anna received her Esthetic License in 2009. She has certifications in Crystal Healing, Herbalism and Soul Realignment. When not at the spa you will find her gardening, working on her 120-year-old house or volunteering in the community. Her three daughters and husband keep her on her toes and laughing. 

Carly Soapes
Spa Manager & Spray Tan Specialist


Carly has been with us for the past 9 years and as the spa's manager, she is the backbone of the spa. In 2017, Carly became a Spray Tanning Specialist, adding that service to the list of offerings. Between spa land, hosting parties and the craziness that comes with having three children, Carly managed to launch a business of her own, White Willow Decorating. She brings her decorating talents to the spa and keeps the facility looking beautiful and welcoming.
