Let me start first by introducing myself as Poonam Patel who is blessed with two beautiful children and a loving caring husband who has been a great support throughout my journey.
My journey began in India when I was a child studying in the 8th grade. It all started when I was helping my neighbor with her spa. It was fascinating to see how she helped people heal from the inside out. It was then that I decided to pursue my dream of helping people.
I have a degree in Chemistry from The Sardar Patel University in India. Destiny at that moment had something different for me in the chemistry lab. While in the lab, I constantly researched how I could make products better based on my education in chemistry.
My thirst to find The Oasis got closer after I met my husband who brought me to the United States. Finally the day came that I arrived from India in New York City, the land of opportunity. All I had with me at the time was God’s grace, my mother’s blessing and a thirst for my dream.
Job opportunities eventually brought us to Cary, N.C. It is then that I came to a State of the art facility named Miller-Motte College. After meeting the caring staff and instructors at Miller Motte I knew this was the place to help me fulfill my dreams.
My training in India of holistic healing was supported by the educators at Miller Motte. Finally, the day came for my graduation! At that point, it was now time to put my dream into place. The Spa Oasis in Cary was born on Oct. 26th, 2006. As the business continued to grow, I needed more employees that shared the same vision as me for the spa. For this reason I have hired 10 estheticians and massage therapists from Miller Motte College. The journey still continues towards a wellness center in the future. I have miles to go before I sleep. I know with God’s grace, my parent’ blessings, family and friend support, and Miller Motte College that I will get there someday.
