Owner/Medical Aesthetic Specialist

Hi, I’m Alyssa. Owner and Medical Aesthetic Specialist. I entered the beauty and wellness industry over 16 years ago. What began as a role of waxing, facials, microdermabrasion, and peels, quickly turned into furthering my skills in the medical spa services through additional training. I continued to gain experience working in the spa and medical spa industry as well as educating through various educational classes and hands-on training. While I was (and still am) grateful for all of the experience and training throughout the beginning of my career, I knew I would end up owning my own business someday. I have always gravitated towards leadership roles throughout my working life, my step-father inspired me to be an entrepreneur. Owning his own web design and photography business, he was always an inspiration. I truly love what I do and enjoy helping others through their journeys. There is nothing better than knowing you contributed to someone living a better life. While we offer an extensive service selection, my favorite services to have done is NeoSkin Laser Treatments and RF Microneedling for that collage boost. They both provide somewhat instant results and no downtime. When I’m not serving my clients’ and running a business you can find me traveling, loving on my cats, spending time with family and eating sushi!


Music: Listening to and playing music is my go-to meditation. It centers me. I also love to sing, and I can play the flute and bass guitar. Next up is learning to play the violin!



Visiting and learning about new places is a must. My favorite trip abroad was Sicily, Italy, but I’ve also had a great time in the Dominican Republic, Mexico, and the Bahamas. I even enjoy traveling alone and exploring new areas.



Food is my love language, even if it has to be gluten-free for me these days. My go-to is gourmet coffee and breakfast: think cappuccinos, Nutella croissants, and parfaits. Don’t get me wrong though, I will never turn down good sushi.

Hello, I'm Lorena! As the front desk administrator at Blossom Med Spa, I take pride in creating a warm and welcoming experience for every client who walks through our doors. When I'm not at the spa, I am house hunting for my clients as a Realtor and traveling all around the South East side of PA. I have always had a passion and love for the beauty and wellness industry and have happily worked in the industry for over 7 years. One of my favorite parts about this world class industry is getting to see the happiness we bring to our clients when we deliver them exceptional services that can be life changing, the close relationships we develop with each person who trusts our abilities and comes to us for any of your needs.

In my free time, I also love to spend time with my family and my chosen family that are friends. I enjoy trying out Lancaster’s restaurants, nature with my Partner and our yorkiepoo, Izzy! I look forward to many years greeting you and helping you along your journey at Blossom Med Spa!

Hi I'm Daniella! As a medical Aesthetician I strive to make my clients feel comfortable, and beautiful in their own skin. I think it is important to enhance each individual's natural beauty.

I currently hold over 10 certifications in services and skincare brands. My favorite service is dermaplaning!

When I'm not working I like to dance, travel, work out, and spend time with my friends, family and my German Shepard. Client comfortability is my top priority, and I look forward to helping and educating my clients at Blossom, with all of their skincare needs!


Medical Aesthetician 

Hello! My name is Karen Olshanskaya. I am originally from the Philadelphia area, but am loving my new home in quiet and beautiful central PA with my partner, Jacob. I have been a Physician Assistant since 2018 when I graduated from Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. The world of cosmetics has appealed to me ever since I did a facial plastic surgery rotation in PA school. I took the road of injectables in order to provide confidence and promote beauty to the public without undergoing invasive surgical procedures. In my free time I like to be outdoors, see friends, cook, and attend barre classes. Brownie points for anyone who can recommend a good hiking trail!

Wellness Practitioner

Hello! My name is Candi Rodriguez and I'm in love with massage therapy and body work! I graduated in the summer of 2000 from LSM here in Lancaster. I loved the experience of massage school. I have worked at a spa salon and done a variety of other subcontracted work with other body workers and there is always something new to learn.   

I love to facilitate a pure divine healing touch. I believe this is my gift and I cherish helping others. Healing begins with an intuitive touch and seeing the relief and relaxation a massage can bring my clients is what makes this work truly rewarding.
