Meet Our Staff

 Ella Barovich

I’m an Austin native and I became an esthetician in 2008 because I love to help people feel happy and comfortable in their skin. My goal with every client is to find natural and safe solutions for their skin care concerns. I believe that through proper diet, exercise, and a sensible and natural skin care regimen, any skin care goals can be achieved. Ella served as Jessica’s intern for 90 days. She has been through a selective training process through Esty and is our pride & joy. She has a natural touch that shines through every treatment. She has been with Esty Skin Studio since 2011.

Lacey Doucet

My journey into skincare began as a teenager after meeting an esthetician who suggested that I try an all natural approach to clearing up my acne, instead of harsh medications. I saw results quickly after taking her advice about diet and lifestyle changes, which sparked my interest in herbal medicine. I’m a clinical graduate of the Wildflower School of Botanical Medicine and decided to pair my knowledge of herbs with my knowledge of skincare in order to help people achieve all of their skin care goals.

Colleen Straney, L.Ac, LMT

Texas Licensed Acupuncturist #1098 Texas Licensed Massage Therapist #MT101932 From very early on, I was fascinated by the connection between body and spirit, massaging family and friends even as a young child. In 1995, when I was 20, I moved from my native Michigan to Albuquerque, New Mexico to attend massage school at Crystal Mountain Apprenticeship in the Healing Arts. The experience was profoundly transformative, and the vast expanse of the desert served as a fitting backdrop for immense personal growth. Throughout my years as a massage therapist, I have been honored and humbled to be any part of my clients’ journey towards healing themselves. I have lived and practiced in several beautiful places in the Western United States, including Denver, Colorado, where I served as an instructor in the massage programs at both Heritage College and Denver Career College. Wishing to build upon my foundation in bodywork, I earned my Master’s in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine from the Academy of Oriental Medicine at Austin in 2008. I am delighted to call Austin, Texas home and feel fortunate every day that I love what I do.
