Deisy Suarez-Giles is a Dominican-born author, philanthropist, speaker, and expert in self-care, and spa management has over 15 years of experience in the health and wellness industry in both Los Angeles and New York. Her passion for philanthropy and entrepreneurship is evident by her commitment to her business in Downtown LA, DESUAR Spa. And branching out into new horizons, she has recently launched her new book, “Marriage Material: How I Found My Husband,” detailing the story of her relationship and marriage to her husband, Keith Giles.
Deisy decided to write and release her new book to share their story to her loved ones, who were not able to witness their marriage, as well as to people who can learn a thing or two about their journey. “Although my wedding didn’t occur during the pandemic, I had to get married without the people who I loved around me, and being unable to share my special moment with others. It reminded me of our current situation. Perhaps my story could give some hope and perspective to others facing similar circumstances,” she explains.
The journey of Deisy Suarez-Giles starts way back when she was a child. She discovered her affinity for beauty as she made scrubs and mud masks in her kitchen sink. At ten years old, she was already doing skin/body, make-up & hair treatments on friends and family. Deisy loved doing these treatments, as she was inspired to make other people feel good about themselves inside and out through the power of aesthetics. Knowing that a career in beauty is her calling, Deisy dedicated herself to learning more about the industry.
Having accumulated enough experience and traction working in beauty, Deisy found success in her work and eventually, was able to build her own business, the Desuar Spa in Downtown LA. Deisy and her husband Keith Giles, now spend most of their time running their spa business, while taking care of their two sons, maintaining a happy household, and also keeping the fire alive in their marriage.
When the entire world shut down Deisy dedicated most of her time to writing. Deisy didn’t want her time to go to waste, and writing a book was something she always envisioned doing. The pandemic quarantine provided her with the necessary time and opportunity to immerse herself into writing her first book. In her reflections, Deisy has developed a deep understanding of what a relationship should be, and she and her husband work hard on it every day. “A marriage is simply the communion of two souls that unite on the physical, mental, and spiritual planes. It’s about the commitment to love and protect one another, to build a home and life together, that is guided by the divine principles of morality and virtue,” Deisy states. She hopes that her story can bring hope and valuable insight to her readers. To know more about Deisy Suarez-Giles and her new book, you can check out her website, or follow her on Instagram.
