Kitty comes from a background of creative and powerful women. Both of her grandmothers and her mother were all entrepreneurs, and all were single mothers while they handled their businesses. Her mother and sister are also in the wellness and beauty business. She discovered her gift of healing in 1997 while she worked in the corporate world of management. In her off time, she received her education in skin and massage and began her work at the Day Spa of Ojai while still working in the corporate world. In 2003, she took a leap of faith and opened and designed her first spa, The Spa Central Coast in Atascadero, California. During this time, she received awards such as Business of the Year, The Beautification Award, Top Spa in the Central Coast, International Press for Girls Getaways, and Top Female Owned Business–just to name a few.
Kitty has also operated other businesses, such as Haven Wine Bistro, which she also designed and ran from 2009 until 2013 when she sold the business and went back to her true passion of wellness.
She has also been a co-owner of a pilates studio and at one time, had The Spa Central Coast located in The Avila Lighthouse Resort in Avila Beach. In 2014, her main focus was to bring The Spa Central Coast to Paso Robles, the town she has resided in since 2004. During Kitty’s off time, she enjoys traveling, Bikram Yoga and self awareness and transformation work. Her passion is to share the gift of love and to continue to be a tool in others self-healing. She loves traveling and spending time in nature.
Dr. Stefanie Mikulics, M.D.
I am thrilled to be joining the Spa Central Coast. Supporting the integration of wellness to include the mind, body and spirit is my mission! (And just for fun I have a variety of minimally to non invasive beauty treatments too). In fact, it has long been my dream to offer health and wellness along with beauty treatments under one roof!
A little about me – I am a wife of 26 years (of bliss), a Mom of 2 (teenagers), 1 dog and several cats. I am a lover of all things health and beauty which reflects in my home garden and even onto the skin care products I use. I have been in private practice for nearly 20 years and have been blessed with the opportunity to offer wellness exams, gyn care and cosmedic medicine treatments. Many of my patients have been with me through thick and thin; pregnancy, practice changes, and now a Mom of 2 teens. Two years ago, I had my own personal health struggle ( ugh – I’ll tell you about it someday). But the silver lining is my journey has taught me so much about the importance of taking care of ourselves; mind, body AND spirit.
Additionally, I am interested in getting to the root cause of disease and as such, you’ll hear me talking about gut health – a lot-. I’m sure you will not be shocked to learn that not only is there a gut-brain connection, but a gut-brain-skin connection as well!
So here we are in the midst of an unprecedented time doing unprecedented things. I am very excited to offer the best of rejuvenating treatments while supporting you in your health, beauty and wellness from the inside out.
Health, Happiness and Many Blessings,
