Jill Seppa – Owner & Stylist
Jill, a Block Island year round resident with a family of 5, sure keeps busy with all things wellness related. She came on board at Koru as the manager and “guru of all things Spa” in 2009 and eventually worked her way into owning Koru in 2014. Last winter, loving the industry so much she attended Paul Mitchell the School Rhode Island to receive her cosmetology certification to support a closer connection with her guests and a more hands on experience to each service. In her education, her team won best all around hair and make-up at the Muse fashion show and she attended Caper 2015, an additional educational experience amongst some of the most accomplished students and platform artists in the industry. Her passion for wellness and all things beauty is evident in her tag line, “be your own kind of beautiful”. During her time away from the spa, she can be found spending time with her family enjoying the natural beauty of the Island.

In the last year she has graduated from the University of Colorado, worked at an advertising agency, and spent four months traveling in South East Asia.
