Meet Marnie Schuman & Barb Fuerst
Marnie Shuman was born and raised in Smithers. As a young adult, she moved to Kamloops to study hair styling and esthetics and worked there for several years. But eventually, she began to miss her Smithers home and her mom, Barb Fuerst. After ten years decided it was time to come home and reconnect with her family and friends. She also had developed many of her own business ideas and realized that Smithers would be the perfect place to implement them by starting her own business.
She opened Valley Oasis Hair Studio & Day Spa in 2008. Within a few months her mom, Barb, joined her as a business partner. Today Barb runs the administrative side of the business while Marnie spends her days making people look beautiful and feel relaxed and rejuvenated. Marnie is proud of the business that she and Barb have established and have worked hard to make it grow. The recent addition of the oxygen bar, hydrotherapy massage bed and tanning capsule was the realization of one of their business goals and dreams. Both attribute that growth directly to the support of their faithful customers and they are deeply grateful for their support. Marnie and Barb plan to continue that growth by adding more new services and machines throughout the coming years.
Both Marnie and Barb are devoted to their families and enjoy spending time with them when they aren’t working. Marnie also loves to hang out with her canine family members… she has three of them, and visitors to the shop are often greeted by one of them.
