With auditions that took place in the beginning of January 2019 in Los Angeles, L’ANZA added five Advanced Healing Artists to join existing member Mark Dolan on the Artistic Design Team.
L’ANZA’s newest members of the Artistic Design Team include Sarah Mac, Catlin Weston, Christina Carter, Raven Feurer and Tashya Garoutte. Their new position at L’ANZA allows each artist the opportunity to participate in corporate photoshoots, lead national training sessions, and spread #lanzalove at trade shows.
