Meet Donna Jacobsen
Spa Rivier began as a small salon on Quesnel's West Side over 25 years ago. Owner and stylist Donna Jacobsen expanded and added new products and services over the years and eventually moved to the downtown core as a full-fledged spa. Donna is proud of the quality of products and standard of service Spa Rivier provides, but notes that it is a team effort that makes it all possible. "I am proud of my entire team," says Donna. "We are well-educated and committed to our professions, clients, and each other."
Donna notes that her downtown location has served her business well. She loves "its charm, vibrancy, and strong business community. It is somehow comforting to belong to a business community where you can always find support and strength," she adds.
Donna loves the city of Quesnel for its easy living and plethora of great outdoor activities. When she has free time she loves being outside enjoying things like camping, kayaking, bike riding, walking, and gardening. She also enjoys being home just puttering around in the kitchen and listening to music.
