Her favorite was Monies Body Shop a women-only gym. Monies Body Shop was a fun and supportive group of women seeking their goals. Good music and lots of friendships continue to bond through this day from that experience!

After a period of time in the large spa environment, Monie decided to return back to Durango. She spent time at Blue Wave Salon and Signature Salon in Durango.

She looks forward to meeting and visiting with you!
