Shop Talk -- Wake

Although originally from the windy city of Chicago, Melissa has lived in the south for nearly 11 years. Embracing the simple charms and gestures of Southern culture, she longed to leave her corporate career for a service based business of her own. Embracing strong memories of service from her grandparents she set out to create a oasis of calm, a Foot Sanctuary, for weary travelers and Asheville regulars alike. The Foot Sanctuary is built around the tenet of service to others and a leadership culture where the employees are encouraged to learn new techniques, question status quo, and make every experience more memorable than the last. “We don’t just love your feet, we love the whole person, and that is what we want you to walk away remembering.”


Asheville…. is waiting for you to arrive!
