WENDY LISOGAR-COCCHIA



"There are no tricks to success, just a lot of hard work."

          Her father wouldn’t give her space in his hotel for her first spa, so this visionary entrepreneur borrowed the money and leased it from him. Today, with her business-partner husband of 25 years, Wendy Lisogar-Cocchia runs Canada's largest independent spa group and oversees the family businesses along with her mother and husband.
          Thousands — including over 300 celebrities — have visited one of Absolute Spa's nine exclusive health-and-wellness spas, including its mobile unit at film sites in Vancouver, a.k.a. Hollywood North. A second business distributes top-ofthe-line spa products. Under serious consideration is the idea to franchise the Absolute Spa name, products and business model across North America.
          "My parents taught me every job in the hotel business. From experience, I know: To be successful, love what you do!"
          That wisdom extends to philanthropy. Wendy and her husband created the Pacific Family Autism Centre, dedicated to people with autism and developmental disabilities.
