Owner/Founder Beyond Wrapture Day Spas

Debra now considers herself a native of Kelowna having lived in the Valley 30 years now. She began Beyond Wrapture in 1994 after experiencing what have become Beyond Wrapture’s Signature treatments at a mountain spa in Mexico. That life changing experience made her determine to share what she learned with others. Not a day goes past that she considers going to work a job; life is about learning, sharing and educating. Mindful of the life force energy, Debra has managed to grow as an individual through some of the challenges of owning a business.
