Owner, Advanced Aesthetician
I am the proud owner of Mary Ellen’s, aesthetic and massage studio. My inspiration surrounding this spa was and is it’s namesake my mama, Mary Ellen Lyons Dillahunt. She passed away in 2016 from lung cancer and even though she is no longer here I get to see and feel her influence on me and this spa everyday!
I am a graduate of The Ohio State University with a degree in Communication and the Spa School in Aesthetics. My biggest goal for growing this amazing business is to deliver outstanding client services with care and passion behind whatever we do! I love what I do and take true pleasure in helping my clients achieve whatever skin care goals they have.
I have 3 amazing kids, Augusta, Scarlet and Wes who have supported me through this challenging journey but have also seen how hard work and passion can create a dream come true!

She enjoys studying with teachers from a variety of backgrounds in order to deepen her practice and holds several additional certifications in facial massage including Gua Sha and facial cupping. As a busy wife, mother of 4 boys, and the nana of 2 girls, her life is a constant source of excitement and joy.
