Lisa McFadden, Owner
As a long time Richmond resident and calling Steveston Village home since 2007, Lisa often heard about the amazing treatments that her neighbors and colleagues experienced at a well-known local gem called the Raintree Wellness Spa. When the opportunity came along to purchase the spa over Christmas 2015 and become a part of an exceptional team of spa professionals, it was an easy choice to make.
With a background in business and medi-spa management, Lisa is looking forward to building new business and connecting with the Steveston community. Lisa and her husband Derek can often be found shopping in the Village, sipping vino on their patio and planning their next trip.
A Steveston alumni, Bri is proud to live and work in the neighbourhood where she grew up. With her husband, Jess a local realtor and her cutie pie pup, Bri and her family can be found enjoying the restaurants and boardwalk in and around Steveston as well as spending summer weekends on the water, enjoying the natural beauty of our spectacular Westcoast.
A Steveston alumni, Jacqueline is happy to be working in Steveston where she grew up but resides in Vancouver’s West End with her partner Bryan. On days off, they can be found cycling around the city, cooking and entertaining at their home with friends and family or Jacqueline simply looking for her next pair of new shoes to adorn her impressive shoe closet!
Sue Oberhoffner – Bodyworker
Sue is excited to be part of the Raintree team, considering it a jewel of a spa devoted to exceptional guest experiences. Her warm and comforting demeanor carries through into her relaxing massage and body treatments.
A longtime Steveston resident, Sue used to check out Raintree as it was being built, watching the beautiful and thoughtful design take place. As a client she experienced firsthand the “Raintree difference”, so there was a high standard she wanted to be a part of after graduating from Vancouver School of Bodywork and Massage. “What I love to see is the before and after in a guest’s face: after treatments they look relaxed and quietly renewed. It is my privilege to be a catalyst for that”.
Days off, Sue is often walking the dyke and Village with her gorgeous Husky/Shepherd “Josh”, dreaming up decorating designs and savouring her favorite cup of java.
