With nearly 20 years experience each in the Tacoma community, Shannon K and Shannon F have committed themselves to their passion: helping others look, feel and be their best. The Shannon’s met 15 years ago when then ICU RN Shannon K became a hair client of Shannon F. The two connected immediately over their shared work ethic and mom-goals. As time passed, the two pursued advanced degrees separately, not knowing aesthetics would come to the forefront of their interests. It was a natural transition to bring their skills and professions together.

Combining their aesthetic and medical backgrounds to create Empowered Med Spa, the Shannons are the ultimate team dedicated to empowering their clients to achieve the best versions of themselves. Clients come for a specialized treatment and leave with new friends and improved confidence in their skin and sense of self. Empowered Med Spa creates a personal experience individualized to each client. Shannon and Shannon stress quality over quantity. “We like to give each person the individual intention they need. Nothing brings us as much joy as seeing the smile on our clients’ faces.

Empowered Med Spa’s mission is to provide a quality personal experience through individualized treatment plans while striving to meet each individual’s goal; improving self image and confidence. Our passion comes from seeing the confident glow on our client’s faces. We believe in delivering high quality treatments to optimize patient outcomes. We use only the latest techniques, procedures, equipment, expertise and up-to-date training for all of our wonderful clients here at Empowered Med Spa.
