Meet The Zama Management Team

Spa Owner
Genevra Cardoso

Genevra holds over 17 years of massage and spa experience. Her vision for Zama is rooted in “healing the world one person at a time,” ultimately creating a different kind of spa – a world class therapeutic-pain relief focused facility where detox, spa pampering, and compassionate care exist under one roof. She personally trains to ensure the Massage Therapists, Estheticians and Customer Care Team are aligned with the vision of Zama: to give each and every Zama guest the opportunity to find relief from stress and pain, and provide them with an overall sense of well-being.

Genevra is fortunate to have a loving and supportive husband who helps in manifesting the vision for Zama. They most recently welcomed twins into the world and have a toddler as well so life is busy for this little family. Genevra also loves spending time with her two pups and two kitties, she does Hot Yoga 4x a week and her passion is cooking Italian food for her family.
