Linda HilkeyOwner/Hair Dresser
Hi I’m Linda owner of Today's Chalet Salon and Spa. I grew up on a small farm in Wahkiacus WA. I very much enjoy my occupation of being a hair dresser and somehow it makes my day to make a client look and feel beautiful. After 34 years in this business it is quite amazing that I still enjoy it so much! It has been a privilege to work with and care for customers in the Gorge. My husband and I have lived in the Gorge all of our lives , we enjoy all the activities the Gorge has to offer.

AvaryMassage Therapist - #MA00022585
I am a local gorge girl. Born in the Dalles and raised in Lyle and White Salmon areas. I attended White Salmon school district until graduating Columbia High School in 2004. From there I went right into school to become a massage therapist. I moved to Vancouver and trained at Ashmead College in basic massage skills and techniques. During my schooling I applied for an internship to earn cancer massage. Out of 100n applicants I was 1 of 5 selected. During this training I worked on patients receiving their treatments as well as their family members who came for support. It was during this training that really made me want to use my skills to help people in a therapeutic sense instead of in a spa sense. After completing my internship and graduating with practical massage techniques I enrolled into clinical and sports specialty. In this program I focused on common injury treatment, rehabilitation techniques for sport injuries. It was during this training that I really focused on getting my practice towards a more medicinal stance. Now I have sense moved back home to White Salmon. I have been practicing going on 7 years and love every minute of it. There is nothing I enjoy more than being able to help people. Well maybe playing with my son or camping in Alaska. Being from here I’ve realized that there is no other place that I would rather live or raise my son. Between the Camping, Hunting, Fishing, Community and overwhelming beauty of this place. I feel fortunate and proud to be able to call the Gorge my home.

Wendy Randall CowanNail Tech
I just moved home to White Salmon WA. after being gone since 1989! I have done nails in Portland, OR and also Kauai ,HI. I love making my clients natural nails look amazing, but my focus is also on sanitation of all my tools. New buffer and files are used each time. One use pedicure liners which are thrown away after each use. my fear is many people love that they can find a salon and only pay 25.00 for a nail service and walk out with their nails looking wonderful, but what they forget is that they are paying for beautiful nails but they are not always paying for the sanitation and procedures needed to prevent you from getting any kind of nail fungus. With me you will never have to worry about walking out with a nail fungus, only beautiful nails! I bet you are one of those people who cater to everyone else forgetting you are important too! come RELAX and let me cater to you, don't you deserve it?!!
