Long-time Halls Lake cottager, Yvonne Kreuzwiesner, has made the bold decision to not only move full-time to the County but start a new business during COVID-19.
Kreuzwiesner recently launched Skin Tech Face and Body Care.
“I have been a cottager on Halls Lake since 1967. I love the Haliburton Highlands and I am so proud and happy to be living, and to have started the business, here in the Highlands,” she said.
Kreuzwiesner said she believes that the pandemic has changed people’s lives for the better.
“If anyone had told me in February, 2020 that I would be living and working in the Haliburton Highlands in May, I would say they were kidding me. However, as fate would have it, here I am living in a truly beautiful place and now running a new business.”
Kreuzwiesner had been teaching medical esthetics at a college in Mississauga until March, 2020 and then was laid off due to COVID. Feeling upset and lost and not comfortable in her condo in Toronto, she decided to come north to her cottage. Once there, she decided to paint and fix the place up to pass the time.
Then one day a neighbour asked her if she could give her a pedicure on her deck. From there, she decided to give the community Mobile Medical and Traditional Esthetic services. She said she had a steady summer and met some great people.
“I wanted to offer more than just mobile services, so through the help of Royal LePage in Haliburton, I met Amy who was setting up Blush Hair Design in the Village Barn in Haliburton. On Sept. 28, 2020 we officially opened our businesses.”
Skin Tech is located in Blush Hair Design at 195 Highland St.
“It’s so great to offer esthetics and medical esthetics with the convenience of hair design together in one location,” Kreuzwiesner said. She said she believes it’s the only esthetic, hair combination shop in the County. They offer mobile services as well.
“I truly feel blessed to be part of such a warm, friendly and kind community.”
