Babette Shedd

Certified Aesthetician (a.k.a. Spa Diva)
Babette is our resident expert in all things aesthetics, or Spa Diva as she prefers to be called. Facial, dermaplane, chemical peel, massage, or microblading – if you can name it she can do it. Babette strives every day to help people look and feel better. When she's not working her magic on a client or studying the latest treatments, she's probably at home binging the latest Netflix series with her daughter.

Emily Woodard

Receptionist & Medical Assistant
Emily is the first face you'll see when you walk in the door at Elamar. It's her job to make your time here fun & relaxing! Emily also assists Dr. Gill during procedures; her favorite thing is seeing clients' reactions to their first glimpse of themselves post treatment. When she's not in the office she enjoys spending time with her husband and 3 girls, or RE-watching Grey's Anatomy for the gazillionth time while snacking on salt & vinegar chips.

Elaine Gill

Spa Director (and Lead Party Planner)
Elaine directs Elamar from her office, which is appropriately named after Coco Chanel. One step inside and you feel like you've entered a Parisian cafe. Her favorite thing about working at Elamar is planning parties and getting to know our wonderful clients. When she's not at work you can catch her reading fashion magazines while “watching” football or sewing baby clothes for her friends.

Lauren Stephenson

Social Media Manager
Lauren is our in house socialite. She documents all the fun things we get to do and think up unique, creative ways to share it with everyone. Lauren loves Japanese food – double fried rice with lots of yum yum sauce! Her favorite way to spend time is hanging out with her handsome husband, Dan and adorable toddler, Lou Ella.

Tina Thomas

Administrative Support
Tina's job is to make sure everyone else is able to do their job. She keeps us organized, so organized that she's the only one who can find things! She brightens the office with her sunny Californian disposition, and spends her free time kayaking and playing outdoors with her Husband Kenny and their 8 kids. Go to snack? Any sour candy – she doesn't discriminate.

Austin Gill

Marketing Director
Austin makes sure everything “behind the screen” is running smoothly. He keeps our website in top shape and handles all our video. Austin's favorite past times are working out, planning his next backpacking trip, and hunting for new restaurants. Favorite indulgence? Peanut butter. Just peanut butter.

Vicki Stephenson

Sales Extraordinaire
Vicki loves all things girl!!  She is often referred to as our fashionista. She is dedicated to helping women achieve their personal best through skin care, make-up, and fashion. Coaching women to present their best self is her favorite part about working at Elamar!
