Meraki Spa is a young and growing business in Newburyport, MA that is owned by sisters Krysteen and Jessica Vo. The spa offers premier beauty services to clients from all over the North Shore, including nails, massage, makeup, waxing, and skin care. Meraki carries on the legacy and hard work of Krysteen and Jessica’s mother, Nancy Lam, who worked in the nail industry for more than 20 years while raising her five children as a single mother. Krysteen says that she is most proud of Meraki’s culture of teamwork, and seeing the collective and individual growth of her staff.
When Krysteen and her sister started their business they knew it was vital to have a CPA they could trust and rely upon. They also wanted someone with some knowledge of the beauty industry. Tristan CPA turned out to be the perfect fit. Krysteen says: “Tristan’s services have helped me to organize all of my bookkeeping, numbers, and reports so that I can focus more of my time on growing the business.”
Meraki will celebrate their two year anniversary this September, but they’ve already become a go-to for beauty and spa services on the North Shore. Krysteen credits Meraki’s success to having access to critical monthly financial reports that allow her to clearly see and evaluate their numbers. She says: “Self-evaluation is imperative to growth. Having Tristan take care of my accounting provides me with the ability to constantly self-evaluate on an objective scale so that I can determine better options and alternatives to pursue Meraki’s interests, including management, leading my team and meeting our goals.”
