Industry veteran Jacqueline Berry has been appointed group director of spa and wellbeing at Miraval. She will oversee the company's Life in Balance spas at Miraval Arizona, Miraval Austin and Miraval Berkshires.

Berry was previously general manager at Miraval Life in Balance Spa at Monarch Beach Resort where she introduced signature spa services and creative expression classes, a mindful eating experience and launched over 30 new fitness, yoga and meditation classes.

“Jacqueline has demonstrated an excellent ability to bring spa and wellness concepts to life," said Simon Marxer, associate VP spa and wellbeing of Miraval Resorts & Spas. “I look forward to seeing her develop her expertise to further the brand’s mission of helping guests create a life in balance through mindfulness.”

In her new role Berry will collaborate with each property to reinforce the brand’s mission and support the brand's signature treatments.

Before joining Miraval, Berry served as spa director for Lake Austin Spa Resort, Canyon Ranch and Regent Seven Seas Cruises.

She began her career as a massage therapist with Steiner Leisure as the youngest crew member on board the Sun Princess. Her passion for spa and wellbeing began at the age of 16 when she was involved in a car accident and treated her injuries with massage therapy. She was so moved by the healing power of touch she became a licensed massage therapist and is still licensed today.
