AQUA URBAN SPA opened in 2003 and Valerie has been managing operations and marketing and it won the first prize for the best day spa in 2007.

In 2007 Valerie won a contract with Hilton Diagonal Mar Hotel in Barcelona to manage the spa operations on the terrace where they offer various Sothys treatments.
Since 2008 Valerie also has a consultation role in Aqua Salon Spa. She also works with Esthetic World and Esthetic Spa magazine as technical advisor and writer.
