Welcome Kendra Rice to The Spa at Golden Ocala!

The Spa at Golden Ocala Golf & Equestrian Club is one of the most relaxing places on earth and it just got a little more special with the addition of Kendra Rice. As the new Spa Director, Kendra’s mission is to give our members the highest level of service possible and help The Spa flourish as the number-one spa destination in Central Florida, a goal that we’re so excited to watch her attain. As a Golden Ocala member, your wellness will be in the very capable hands of Kendra Rice, so read on to learn more about the outstanding woman leading the way towards ultimate luxury.

A Career to Behold

Kendra was born and raised in Zeeland, Michigan, but has lived all over the country in Chicago, Nashville, Miami and now resides in Central Florida. Kendra has an impressive resume of experience and licensure that will benefit The Spa at Golden Ocala greatly. Licensed in massage therapy, laser hair removal, and as an esthetician, Kendra is bringing a wealth of knowledge to the job. She’s previously held the spa director title at JW Marriot in Nashville, Tennessee and the Trump International Hotel and Tower in Chicago as well as being the assistant spa director at WTS International, Inc./MySpa in Miami, Florida.

Kendra said she chose Golden Ocala as her next destination because of the vast opportunities that the club and The Spa can offer. “The excitement that surrounds Golden Ocala right now and The World Equestrian Center is undeniable,” she said. “The opportunity to be part of something of this magnitude was something I could not resist.”

Her passion for skincare and wellness drove her to dedicate her career to helping others find the joy in taking care of oneself. The spa industry has given Kendra the chance to lead teams of equally passionate wellness professionals and she’s looking forward to cultivating the most effective and inspired team tasked with taking exceptional care of the members of Golden Ocala.

What She’s Bringing to The Spa

Kendra has started her new role with a bang, immediately introducing a new line of skincare to the members of The Spa. It was incredibly important to Kendra to bring new retail products to The Spa that complement the five-star services that are offered which is why she has introduced SkinCeuticals to our members. SkinCeuticals is a premier skincare brand that is results-driven and scientifically proven to improve one’s skin. “Our members should have easy access to incredible products.” Kendra said. “That was my first priority when arriving.”

Kendra is driven to enhancing the member-experience at Golden Ocala. She wants each member to be able to take a little bit of The Spa home with them every time they leave because she believes wellness shouldn’t be a one-off experience. Kendra is excited to bring her passion to Golden Ocala and we are so thrilled to have her on our team.
