OWNER & FOUNDER
From Montreal to Toronto and currently settled in Ottawa, Natalie Esau has established a name for herself in the spa industry as a skilled professional. Natalie began her career over 15 years ago working as an esthetician at a high volume spa in Montreal.
Craving a new challenge, she began traveling internationally as a skin care trainer. Her travel took her to some of the most luxurious spas in North America. Natalie’s passion to lead and educate in the industry continued as she moved on to various roles such as lead instructor and spa director. However, she had a dream; settle closer to family and open her own business.
Natalie has always been accustomed to an urban lifestyle. It became increasingly difficult to fit extended spa visits into her busy schedule, but with a need to maintain appearance as well as some much deserved R&R, she always made room for regular mani/pedi’s with her gals. This is where the idea for The Upkeep Shoppe was born. The inspiration and focus was to develop an environment where both genders would feel comfortable receiving regular maintenance services in a timely fashion. An environment that offered traditional spa services without being a typical spa but rather, The Upkeep Shoppe.
