Marie is the Director of Operations for Maack Management. She started her career in the beauty industry in 2005 working for a major distribution company of professional products. Shortly after, she became a licensed esthetician and began her esthetics career at a high-end hotel spa. While obtaining her esthetics license Marie also received her BS in Business Administration, with an emphasis in Small Business/New Ventures Management from Cal State, East Bay. In 2007 she and her siblings opened the first of two family owned and operated salons and continues to assist in the business development of that company. In 2008, Marie joined the team at San Francisco Institute of Esthetics and Cosmetology, a Paul Mitchell partner school. As Financial Aid Leader she was able to assist likeminded individuals in starting their careers in the industry that she loves. Marie found herself missing the daily interactions with spa guests and in 2011 she joined the team at (I)Spa at Intercontinental Hotel San Francisco. She began her work there as a Spa Concierge and Esthetician, later becoming the Spa Director, coaching and mentoring a team of 30. Currently, as Director of Operations for Maack Management, Marie is able to use her experience in ensuring that the daily operations are consistent throughout the 7 (and growing) locations, while cultivating a culture of passion for the beauty and wellness industry, all while maintaining profitability for the company. Marie believes that mentoring, coaching and cultivating strong relationships is at the core of success.
