Ella Kent honoured with ISPA award
By Megan Whitby 28 Feb 2020
Kent acted as chair of the ISPA Board for two years and held a seat on the board of directors for six.
ISPA has announced it will present Ella Kent with the 2020 ISPA Dedicated Contributor Award at the 2020 ISPA Conference and Expo.

The award is given to an active ISPA member who’s significantly contributed to the growth and promotion of the organisation, while demonstrating leadership and commitment to the organisation.

Kent acted as chair of the ISPA Board for two years and held a seat on the board of directors for six. She continues to serve on various task forces, including ISPA’s nominations committee.

“Ella’s leadership and dedication to ISPA has provided a lasting impact, not only on our association but also on our industry,” said ISPA president Lynne McNees.

“Ella’s commitment to serving our industry exemplifies the meaning behind the award, making her the perfect recipient at our 30th-anniversary celebration.”

Kent began her career as a PT at The Broadmoor Hotel, a five-star resort in Colorado where she progressed to spa director in 2002.

She moved to join the team at Wynn Las Vegas, overseeing spa operations at both The Wynn and The Encore.

In 2014, Kent became director of spa for The Spa at Sea Island, a Forbes Five-Star coastal resort in Georgia, becoming director of rooms in 2018.

“This wise, warm and diverse tribe has helped me grow, flourish and find purpose,” said Kent. “What a privilege to serve and continue to serve in the years to come.”

The 2020 ISPA Conference & Expo will take place on 14 – 16 October 2020 at Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center, Fort Washington, Maryland, US.
