Team Biographies

Stacey Gaff

Owner / Esthetician 

Stacey’s passion for the beauty industry began 15 years ago after attending University for Business Administration, she felt sitting in an office all day was not for her.  She enrolled in the Esthetics program at Blanche McDonald School in Vancouver in 1999. As the story goes for many Whistler locals, Stacey came to Whistler for a long weekend and four months later, packed up her apartment and moved to town.  It was in Whistler that Stacey honed her esthetic skills and developed a large clientele of regular customers.  After 7 years working for Revolution Spa Stacey decided to take a break and travel for 2 years. After her travel she knew she wanted to start her own business and Whistler Day Spa was born. Originally, the spa began as a one woman show (Stacey) providing mobile spa services. Soon the business became so busy that Stacey moved the business to a room within the Loft Hair Salon. Whistler Day Spa quickly out grew this space and relocated to our new home at the Pan Pacific Village Centre. Stacey has extended her team to include 2 extra estheticians, 6 massage practitioners and a front desk manager. In 2012 Stacey was voted Best Esthetician in the Pique Newspaper’s ‘Best of Whistler’ Campaign. She has become known as one of the top waxing therapists in Whistler and maintains a large following of loyal clients.
