KILLEEN — ReVive Med Spa & Wellness Center in Killeen opened its doors Friday to host Girls Night Out at the Spa for female members of the Harker Heights Chamber of Commerce.
The evening was part of the Women in Business society founded by Harker Heights Chamber of Commerce Membership Director Gina Pence.
Pence said she began organizing these events more than a year ago when she realized more than 80 percent of Chamber members were women who either owned or operated local businesses.
“I decided I wanted to feature the women and kind of get together and help each other grow in the particular business that they have,” she said.
The Women in Business meetings are held on either the third or fourth Friday of every month and are always free to Chamber members and a guest.
This month, ReVive Med Spa owner Tammy Gilbert volunteered her services to the group.
“Gina brought to my attention that the Chamber had this group of ladies that get together and network and I said why not just bring them here and we can tell them what ReVive is about,” Gilbert said.
Guests were treated to an assortment of desserts and wine followed by a guided tour of the facility and demonstrations of the spa’s popular inch-loss wrap and dermoplaning procedures.
Gilbert and her team of certified medical aestheticians discussed in detail the numerous services Re Vive offers as well as the benefits of their therapeutic treatments.
Many of the women came to learn general information on the latest products and services, but some had specific questions in mind.
“I have some problems with certain things on my face so I’m looking forward to finding out what they’re all about,” said Yvette Bachicha, owner of You Glow Girl Mobile Tanning.
Valerie Payson of VP Printing Signs and Designs, a regular customer at ReVive, came to show support for her fellow businesswomen.
“It’s great that we can come together like this,” she said.
The meetings showcased more than just skin-care education. As Pence said, it gives the women a platform to help others along their business journey.
“Tammy’s been in business a long time and has a lot of opportunity and wisdom that she can share with other business owners,” Pence said. “She is able to tell how she grew her business from a very small salon into now a med spa.”
The next Women in Business event is in April.
