Laying out in the sun feels great, until you get a sunburn or see your skin prematurely aging! This summer, I want you to feel and look your best, and that is why I invited Shea Kruse, the owner and operator of S. Thetics Medspa + Wellbeing in Lawrence, Kansas. 

In this episode, Shea shares her best summer skincare hacks, what you need to know before buying sunscreen, maintaining healthy skin yearround with skincare routines, and easy and practical tips for you to take away. 

Shea also shares her journey from being a stay-at-home mom to becoming a successful entrepreneur. We explore the balance between using feminine energy in business and personal growth. The conversation is filled with practical skincare advice, entrepreneurial insights, and an uplifting message about the power of resilience and community.

Who Is Shea Kruse:

Shea Kruse is the owner of Lawrence’s first ever premiere medical spa, S. Thetics Medspa + Wellbeing, since 2012.

She is also a licensed esthetician that took care of patients and clients mostly until 2021 as she transitioned to solely managing the business on a day-to-day basis and as it is today.  S. Thetics & herself have experienced a tremendous amount of growth, adversity and change over the last twelve and a half years, all while helping people look and feel their best.

Patient and customer CARE coupled with offering the best, most innovative technology that the ever-changing medical aesthetics industry has to offer, delivered by a highly trained, educated and friendly team of providers is our mainstay at S. Thetics.  They want everyone that walks through our doors to feel welcomed and be able to make the most well-informed treatment decisions for whatever their unique skincare, anti-aging and wellbeing concerns may be.

Over the years one of the most favorite aspects of her career is how much she has enjoyed being more involved in our community, helping and raising awareness for various organizations and causes in need such as Bert Nash Community Health Center, the American Heart Association, Lawrence Humane Society, Harvesters, Willow Domestic Violence Center, Toys for Tots and Corpus Christi Church.

Besides her busy work life, she loves to travel and spend any downtime at home and with family.  She is married, mom to two adult kids and “Nona” to two granddaughters and a grandson coming this fall.
