Jordyn Taylor


"Over the years it has filled me with joy to see both women and men leave feeling confident or healed from their treatments."
"I was so inspired by the treatments I received at the spa I went to that I applied for a job!"

Since working to become spa director of Ananya Spa in Seattle, Washington, Jordyn Haley has become the opposite of complacent. This determined professional was born and raised in Houston, Texas, and has a track record that proves the benefits of hard work.

“I have been in the beauty and wellness industry now for eight years and can say without a doubt that it has changed my life. I was so inspired by the treatments I received at the spa I went to that I applied for a job! I felt drawn to the industry. Over the years it has filled me with joy to see both women and men leave feeling confident or healed from their treatments. I feel society is learning to accept that it is okay to pamper yourself and to focus on self-healing, and this industry is here to grow with that.

“I really like to work and stay busy; I can't imagine a stagnant life. I finished my bachelor’s degree while working full time at the spa I worked at in Texas. Once I was settled in at my spa here in Seattle, I decided to enhance my career by going to Esthetics school and in that time, I also was planning my wedding. My husband always jokes about what education I will pick up next. I just can't help but be inspired by the powerful role models I have had in my life—I have worked now for two women who started their companies by themselves and have each made their companies successful. This inspires, drives and makes me feel like I can just keep going!

“My proudest accomplishment so far was moving from Texas to Seattle. It was a difficult decision to make as I absolutely adored my job and team, but it had been my dream for a long time to take a leap like that and leave the place I had grown up in. Starting a new life in a new city is scary and it felt rewarding to push myself like that.”

Always in search of fresh challenges to overcome, Jordyn participated in a Tough Mudder course in September of 2018. “It was something I had wanted to do for some time now but felt a bit intimidated,” remembers Jordyn. “My husband encouraged me and participated with me; it was such a great experience! Hundreds of people are there with you and everyone helps each other get through the obstacles, you'll have a perfect stranger pulling you up out of a mud filled trench. It was another challenge to overcome on my list!”

When asked about her favorite ISPA member benefit, it was difficult to narrow down. Admits Jordyn, “It's hard to pick one, very difficult! I really take to heart the adjectives that are chosen each year and try and tie that into my experience. There's no denying the copious amounts of product you get is a major perk, but my favorite benefit is the education I get from attending. The general sessions are guaranteed to leave you with a burst of energy, and can you ever learn enough from the education session? I don't think so!”
