Michelle joined the Bella team 6 years ago as a receptionist while completing her Aesthetician training. She is not only our Lead Aesthetician but also serves as our Director of Aesthetics. “It’s the best feeling to come into work everyday knowing that I love what I do and who I work for. Sorry Mark & Jeanna… you’re stuck with me (Michelle)!” Before being an Aesthetician, Michelle worked at a series of different chain restaurants while she was in highschool and taking college classes. The last one was Chick-fil-A, where she learned her extraordinary customer service skills and why she still unconsciously responds “my pleasure” to anyone who thanks her. She attended Ridge Technical Academy in Winter Haven and has held a Facial Specialist License for over 5 years.
Michelle is also trained in Microblading/Microshading and has held a Tattoo Artist License for over 4 years. She chose to be an Aesthetician because she was very interested in doing make-up professionally for weddings, proms, etc. As she was in school, she became more interested in skin/skincare and grew to love making people feel beautiful in their skin. It can be a very rewarding profession once you see those amazing before and afters! Michelle continued her love for make-up by becoming skilled in microblading/microshading and adopting that as her signature craft.
How did our lovely Michelle even find us?? Michelle was in school to be an Aesthetician, leaving her resume at multiple spas/salons that she would come across. One day she was getting her hair done next door at Liquid Hair Studio, her stylist was telling her about Bella Viságe and how it would be a lovely place to get her foot in the door. She took her stylists advice and after her appointment she went to grab the one resume she had in her car, walked in, introduced herself to the woman at the desk, and left her information. She received a call the next day from Jeanna for an interview and the rest is history!
Fun fact! Michelle gave birth to her first born in January and she has just come back from maternity leave. His name is Michael Aaron Wilson Jr. and she is loving being his momma and entering this new chapter of her life.

Michaela has lived in Lakeland her whole life (21 years that is)! She attended Mckeel High School and before finding Bella, she worked at Chick-fil-A for five years; WOW! She always brings a smile with her each day and her positive attitude is reflected as she greets clients for their services! Michaela heard about Bella through a friend, and decided to apply because she wanted to work with a team of Boss Women. She was a perfect match!

Ashleigh is our Girl’s Girl, passionate about beauty, aesthetics and serving others! She attended Artistic Nails and Beauty in Lakeland, where she graduated with her Aesthetic License. She has lived in Florida for 10 years, but is originally from Somerville Tennessee, a small town of (at the time) only about 2,500 people. Prior to joining the Bella team, she worked at Coldwell Banker as a Realtor and in an office at Lakeland Regional Hospital. Her mom had been a long-standing client with us, which led to Ashleigh taking up an interest in working here. When she discovered we were hiring for Front Desk, she was determined to get her foot in the door before attaining her Aesthetic License. She began her journey at Bella Viságe as Front Desk Guest Services in May of 2021. Since then, Ashleigh has transitioned from Front Desk to Medical Assistant, into her role as a Licensed Aesthetician. She always brings a positive mindset and energy with her, and that is reflected in the room with her clients. A fun fact about Ashleigh is that she is named after both of her grandmas, (Leigh & Camille) which are named after their grandmas, and named after their grandmas; it just keeps going!

She grew up in Plant City and made the move to Lakeland to get a change of scenery. Her interest in the industry originated in cosmetics, but transitioned to aesthetics because she wanted to learn how to manage her eczema and achieve a radiant complexion without the use of makeup. Amberlyn has a passion for sharing what she learns with others! She is a kitty mommy of two, recently engaged and her favorite part of a facial is hot towels.
Irina’s relationship with Bella Viságe began as a client in 2019. One day we were racking our brains to find a Spanish-speaking receptionist and we thought about Irina. We quickly asked her to join the team, as her professionalism and business mindset was apparent, even though she was still in high school at the time. Since her first day, she has gone above and beyond for our clients and her coworkers. Her attention to detail and truly caring demeanor with clients and spa operations is remarkable.
Irina is the epitome of the Ritz-Carlton level of customer service that we strive to achieve at Bella Viságe. She serves as our Director of Spa Operations and the Supervisor of our Guest Relations Team, and we couldn’t be more proud of her growth.
