Tropical Bliss Spa owner Emeka N. Willis was born and raised in the US Virgin Islands in St. Thomas. As a little girl, she was always intrigued by the beauty industry, but her big breakthrough came from a woman named Michelle Ford, who hired her at Mac Cosmetics, and she’s been working in the industry ever since. 17 years.

Willis already has a location in Atlanta, Georgia which is very successful, and she decided to expand to the tropics. “Expanding my business to VI has been the hardest thing I have ever faced since becoming an entrepreneur and business owner. This project has been difficult and stressful due to choosing a contractor, funding my project, running out of savings, losing my eye on a designer handbag (lol) and daily travel at Home Depot.

Willis chose USVI because she was born here and felt like it was needed and needed. “I come from this soil, so why not plant my seeds here?” said Willis. Its spa aims to provide superior customer service while providing a relaxing and stress-free atmosphere for its customers.

She encountered several obstacles during the preparation of this project. “Obstacles that made me cry and pray for two years in a row,” Willis said, reflecting on the past. She started this project when the pandemic hit, and it’s been a roller coaster ride ever since, but the spa is now complete and is already booked and busy for the month.
