Meet Laura

“Owner” is a general term. Anyone can own a thing, but to drive something, to grow your own small community, to nourish an entity that gives back – that is more than ownership. It is embodiment.


The driving force behind Kitzie Spa – Signature Skin + Care is Laura Kitzmann. Yes, her name is on the door, but beyond that, she owns the positive impact that looking and feeling good deposits in our physical, mental and emotional health banks.


Laura’s professional footprint is distinct. In the state of Missouri, she is a leader in oncological skin therapy, acclaimed as Missouri’s first oncology certified esthetician. Completing this specialized training provided Laura with the ability to offer safe, effective and relaxing customized facials, massage therapy, as well as makeup application and skin care education to clients at any stage of cancer treatment.

The Kitzie Story

Laura is an oncology certified Kansas City acne specialist whose proof of excellence lies in her commitment to education. A veteran graduate of Independence College of Cosmetology, Laura is also a CIDESCO diplomate. CIDESCO qualification is the world’s most prestigious professional recognition in the field of esthetics and wellness therapy. Additionally, armed with certifications in microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and dermaplaning, her professional strengths include LED light therapy prescription, ingredient mastery, makeup artistry and wax hair removal. Laura is constantly evolving in the world of esthetics, offering highly individualized skin therapy to every studio guest she welcomes.

Laura’s passion is not new, yet her zeal for esthetics has only grown since her days of playing makeup with her sister as a girl. That creative enthusiasm has grown into what each Kitzie Spa guest receives when they meet Laura: expectations that are always exceeded, accompanied by guaranteed rejuvenation. The experience Laura creates is rooted in the understanding that each person that steps into her room has unique needs. While every client is distinct, the goal is always the same: create from scratch, a science-based skincare treatment program that delivers results, then enrobe them in relaxation. Kitzie Therapies are all-inclusive, so you’ll  never be surprised by mid-treatment add-ons or “starting from” fees.

Because giving back has become an important part of her career, Laura has committed to having a positive impact on the lives of cancer patients with compassion and healing. As a volunteer with the American Cancer Society’s Look Good, Feel Better® program, she facilitates a workshop that teaches cancer patients skin care and beauty techniques to help them combat appearance-related side effects of cancer treatment.

After hours, Laura loves spending time with her husband Chris, wishing time would slow down just a tiny bit as she watches her son Leo and daughter Sydney grow up way too fast. Her favorite ways to stay on top of a healthy lifestyle are kickboxing, chasing her two beautiful children and preparing healthy gourmet meals for her family.
