Her journey with Silver Sixpence began six years ago with a distinctive luxury beauty bus, offering top-notch spa services at events and throughout the winter at Cardrona Ski Field. This innovative start led to the establishment of a custom-designed day spa in Three Parks, Wanaka, meticulously crafted by Alecia herself.

With a wealth of experience working abroad in prestigious day spas, skin clinics, and even luxurious super yachts, Alecia has carefully crafted Silver Sixpence into a haven where every client is made to feel like royalty. “Creating an environment that my team adores is crucial—they’re not just my staff; they’re my second family,” Alecia shares.

Alecia’s 17 years in the beauty and spa industry fuel her continuous drive to enhance her skills, especially in medical skin treatments. Her services, including tailored skin plans and cutting-edge procedures like IPL, Morpheus8, and FormaV, highlight her dedication to excellence and ongoing education. Alecia’s holistic approach to health, emphasising both skin and gut well-being, is key to achieving lasting, optimal results.

At the heart of Alecia’s life is her family. She enjoys exploring the tranquil lakes of Wanaka and traveling across New Zealand in their caravan with her husband Dan, a well-known local tradesman, and their daughters, Frankie, five, and Marlee, two. Together, they relish the peace and beauty of their scenic hometown, finding joy in simple moments spent with friends.
