After completing her MBA at The University of Texas at Austin, Alissa decided to forgo a traditional post-MBA job and instead launched milk + honey spa.
Not only did she see an opportunity in Austin for a luxury day spa, but it was important to her to build something that made — and continues to make — others feel great. In January 2006, she launched milk + honey, and today, it encompasses a thriving collection of six spas in Austin, Houston, and Fort Worth, with two Los Angeles locations on the horizon.
In 2014, she launched milk + honey’s line of hyper-clean, organic, and effective bath and bodycare products. With 40 existing SKUs in the bath, body, and home categories, milk + honey also launched its skincare line in early 2019 — with safe, non-toxic haircare on the horizon.
With over 10 years at the helm of a brand that believes feeling good is the foundation of health and happiness, Alissa is not only a dynamic and inspiring leader, but a true pioneer and trailblazer of the clean beauty movement.
