Bella Nuova Esthetician Donna

Meet our Certified Esthetician, Donna

Buona giornata! (Good day!) Well, it was a long road to get here. Being a paramedic and working various medical fields, then jewelry designer and now esthetician, I have certainly spent my days, reinventing myself. Phew! I created the jewelry when life changed and I needed to make ends meet with a tiny baby to take care of. Things were tough. I wanted more for him and the world was full of possibilities. I just needed to press on. I saved for years, working multiple jobs to get ahead. With a little ingenuity, and the help of family, I opened a little store on Newport Ave in Bend. My jewelry was making a name and we were on track.
Years down the road, COVID took the world by storm and our beautiful little jewelry business took a nose dive. With little income from jewelry sales, I once again, re-evaluated life and considered my options. I had no less than a decade of creating jewelry but I also had a tremendous amount of medical education and training to fall back on so I decided to embark on a new direction: skincare and cosmetology. Lots of hope and lots of risk, ...Oh boy... and back to school I went. (Stimolante! - things are definitely harder when you're older.) 
Along the way, we found ourselves in the midst of the Corona virus backlash; we lost both of our beloved fur babies to old age, we struggled with electrical dilemmas, had a home roof leak, and lost our money for our son's graduation when the rental house refused to refund our reservation. Like everyone, we found 2020 to be a challenge.
Still, we pressed on. With the help of family, we did all that we could to retro-fit esthetics into our little store while keeping a little jewelry to share.  Lots of hammering, paint and love... We made it happen with a unique concept, Italian inspired spa.  It's just right and really works in our little location on Newport Ave; with jewelry, accessories, organic and clean skincare products and our very own apothecary items. It's warm and inviting, just like our Italian family.
With a charming facelift, our building was ready to share and here we are!  I am a 40+ year Bendite with a love for this area, the lifestyle and the people. Bend is a great place to live and dream. And making dreams into reality, are not lost on this family.  We've seen so many people and we are thrilled to make them part of our family. We are the best and our 5 star reviews speak volumes. 

I  truly hope you'll stop by to see the to visit us about a facial or spa service.  Everyone is family with Bella Nuova. From our Bend - Italian family to yours, BENVENUTO - WELCOME! Come check out our cute and inviting spa and find out why we are the Best in Bend! Get pampered! You're going to love it! Ciao!
