About this contributor: Lisa Kasanicky

For Lisa Kasanicky, spa hopping is not just an adventure, it’s a job. Through a passion that has propelled her to become recognized as spa authority, she shares her enthusiasm for her “job” through an expanding media base including publications, the Internet and live television and radio. Her first book, "The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Girlfriend Getaways," was an ode to women everywhere to take time out to bond and re-energize sans life’s endless responsibilities. Not surprisingly, the book has one very enormous spa chapter.
