In our never-ending quest to give you the latest in skin care tips and treatments, LN recently caught up with Kathleen Fuller, spa director at the Four Seasons, St. Louis. Fuller took a circuitous route to her current profession, starting out as a store manager for Walmart before founding her own cosmetics studio, which she operated for 14 years. She then moved to the field of hotel spas, and joined the Four Seasons two years ago. Fuller says her highest goal is to provide a calm experience that promotes the wellness of their spa guests. It must be working: Four Seasons' spa was voted the Best Spa in this year’s LN Platinum List!
