Caring for others has always been part of Kelly’s DNA. She began her career in the wellness industry as a licensed massage therapist in 1997.

She attended the Texas Laser and Aesthetics Academy in 2019, specializing in Laser Hair Removal. She became part of Viva’s medical spa team in 2018.

Testimonials from Kelly's Clients

“I always request Kelly Story when I go to Viva Day Spa on Lamar. Her cheerfulness and knowledge for the different services always impress me. I leave feeling good and my skin is so soft I feel like it’s glowing. I’ve had about 6 different services and have not ever been disappointed. I highly recommend Kelly Story.” — Linda D. | Yelp (March 2023)

“I LOVE this place!!! Kelly Story is my go to for everything. she’s as knowledgeable as she is friendly and funny! From facials to laser hair removal and so much in between, I know I’m in good hands. I recommend her to all of my friends.” — Jennifer S. | Yelp (February 2023)

“I’ve been seeing Kelly for about 5 years now and my skin has never looked better. I’ve done everything from hydrafacials to lactic peels to IPL. She’s able to relax me to the point of feeling like I’m floating out of the spa on a cloud when she’s done. Her touch is incredible, thoughtful, and intuitive. She’s always keeping me up to date on the latest products and recommends only the best. I’d see her once a week if I could!” — Samuel C. | Yelp (February 2023)

“Viva is my spa staple. I usually go to the location on 35th for massages and standard facials but I started coming to the Lamar location for the IPL facial treatments. My favorite service provider is Kelly S and she is a gem – a true professional with a calming presence. When I first met her, she immediately made me feel comfortable and talked me through the process. She was very in tune and closely monitored how I was tolerating the service. I’m also now hooked on Skinceuticals products thanks to Kelly. I’ve always felt at ease at Viva due to the cleanliness and safety precautions. I don’t usually encounter more than one other patron.

Stacie H | Yelp Review (February 2021)

“I had a laser treatment from Kelly, who is also amazing. My last laser treatment was about 8 years ago. It was very painful. I was almost dreading my treatment. Kelly was very thorough and the treatment was actually bearable. Highly recommend!”

Valerie Garcia | Google Review (February 2021)
