Marissa Mero


I'm Marissa! I began my esthetics journey in December 2017 here in GF at Josef's. After realizing entrepreneurship is for me, I started Bloom Beauty Bar in August 2018. I absolutely loved it! I wanted to teach young estheticians my way of customer service and service techniques, along with offering them job opportunities. So with that in mind, I opened Bloom Beauty Bar Grand Forks in June 2021. We opened our second location downtown Devils Lake in March of 2023! It has been completely life changing- I love my job.

I grew up in the Devils Lake area. I now share a home with my husband Hunter and our FOUR collies: Rand, Kobe, Waffles, and Sugar. Let's just say I'm happy my vacuum works! We are also expecting our first baby in September 2023! My favorite part about my job is watching clients leave our business as a new and confident version of themself. I am so excited for what the future holds for Bloom Beauty Bar!

Chloe Woinarowicz


Hello! I’m Chloe. I grew up here in Grand Forks. I decided I wanted to be in the beauty/skincare industry my sophomore year of high school. Originally I wanted to become a cosmetic injector but quickly changed my mind when I found out about the esthetics program at Josefs School of Hair, Skin and Body here in town.

I graduated the program in January 2021 and was Marissa's first hire that April. I became a manager in January 2022, and am now the locations manager and educator for both GF and DL locations. I can’t wait to meet so many new amazing people and help them build their confidence. I hope to see you in either Bloom store soon!



Shawna Keitzman


Hi, I’m Shawna! I was born and raised here in Grand Forks. I attended Josef’s in Grand Forks in 2020 when I realized my passion for hair, skin, and body. While in cosmetology school, I took a lash class taught by Marissa! I picked it up quickly and was eager to keep learning. Marissa kept an eye on my work throughout the rest of my time in school. After graduating in May 2021, I passed my boards and received my license. That July, I started working at Bloom Beauty Bar. My top 3 favorite services are lash extensions, henna brows, and body waxing.


My clients have been so supportive, and have become near and dear to my heart! Thank you all for accepting me with open arms. In my free time you can find me hanging out with my boyfriend Liam, my friends and family, or cuddled up at home with my two kittens, Binx + Reign.




Hi, I'm Mataya! I am from Goodridge, MN. I met Marissa through Mary Kay in 2020, and soon afterwards realized that I wanted to become an esthetician. I attended The Salon Professionals Academy in Fargo and graduated in February 2022. I am so excited to be working with the Bloom team here in Grand Forks! I would say my favorite services are brow waxes, makeup, and lash extensions. On the weekends, you can find me hanging out with family, friends, assisting with wedding makeup, or at the Silo Boutique downtown Grand Forks!




Hi, I'm Ally! I was born and raised in Park Rapids, MN with my two older sisters. After graduating high school in 2017, I moved to Fargo, ND where I attended The Salon Professional Academy to pursue a career in esthetics! Since then, I have worked in a couple different places and am now at Bloom Beauty Bar. I love being able to challenge myself and learn more every day.

When I'm not at work, I am with my adorable two year old son, Jalen. He is smart, funny, ADORABLE, and always on the move. I am so lucky to be his mom.

Hello, I’m Bree! I am originally from California but I have grown up in Grand Forks the majority of my life! I’ve always had a passion for skin care but decided to try a different career path after graduating high school. Soon into my college years I decided that skin care was the true path for me!

I joined the skin esthetics course at Grand Forks Josefs, and Marissa and I got in touch soon after. In December 2022, I graduated from my program and am now a newly licensed esthetician! I am so grateful start my journey at Bloom Beauty Bar Devils Lake! I cannot wait to meet all of you and am excited to see our new journey in skin care together!

Hi, I’m Maya! I grew up in the Devils Lake area and stuck around for a couple years after high school to play collegiate basketball and acquire a business management degree.
