Genevra holds over 12 years of massage and spa experience, specializing in modalities such as myofascial release therapy, deep tissue/sports therapy, Sufi healing, cupping, Ashiatsu, and Reiki. Genevra carries years of experience in owning businesses and marketing them. Her dreams for Zama are rooted in “healing one person at a time,” ultimately creating a different kind of spa – a world class guest-focused facility, where pain relief, detox, spa pampering, and heart centered care exist under one roof. She personally trains the massage therapists, making sure that each of them are aligned with the vision of Zama: to give each and every Zama guest freedom and healing from stress and pain, and provide them with an overall sense of well-being. Genevra believes that at Zama, every guest is a VIP.
Genevra loves to spend time traveling and dreaming with her husband, Daniel Cardoso, a prominent and respected member of the Portland business community. Together they are exploring five star spas around the world, and have big plans that are soon to come for the vision of Zama.
Allee came to Zama after spending precious time incubating her management style and business philosophy in both Spas and Athletic Clubs in the Portland Metro Area. Her leadership style, coupled with her down to earth appeal, provides a magnitude of gifts to Zama. Years of experience as a fitness expert and personal trainer coupled with (quite literally) kicks and falls in the professional horse back riding circuit gave her deep appreciation for the incredible practice of massage and bodywork! With a Business Administration and Sociology Degree from University of Oregon, this serious Ducks fan leads by example. This matches perfectly with her favorite quote, “There is no exercise better for the human heart than reaching down to lift another person up.” Her goal in life is to inspire people to be a light for those around them. From leading the Zama Team to delivering a 5-star spa experience for each and every Zama guest, her vision continues to blossom, and Zama is blessed to have her!
When Allee is not lighting up the Spa world, she volunteers for Special Olympics, and loves spending time with her family and her beloved animals.
