Meet the Staff

Tracey VanDenPlas - CEO and Master Stylist:
I started in the salon industry when I was 15 years old and now 29 years later, I love this profession just as much as when I began my career! I have extensive experience in haircutting, hair coloring, formal up-styling, and makeup. I have my Certificate of Achievement from The Redken Exchange Cut and Know Why course. Total makeovers are my absolute favorite. I love to hear when my client says “I need a new look!”   I have had the pleasure of owning my own salon for over 18 years through which my husband of 22 years, and three amazing children have been very supportive! Being an owner, I have been challenged in my profession but have also celebrated success and much satisfaction. Sharing my experiences through mentoring and educating individuals is one of my greatest joys.



Sara Gerges - Salon Coordinator:
I have been working in the salon industry for 14 years and I absolutely love it!  My role at Belle Mariposa Salon is not only to help manage and market the salon, but also to make sure every client is both well taken care of and pleased.  It is my priority to ensure that the client's experience exceeds 100% satisfaction during every visit. I also manage the bridal party bookings and guide the bride and her girls through each step of preparing for the big day!  In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family and paper crafts.




Melissa Gormley - Master Stylist:
I have lived in this area for 14 years and I have a wonderful and supportive family. I have been a stylist for 9 ½ years at Belle Mariposa.   I enjoy and excel at cutting, color and highlighting services for my clients.  The greatest benefit of my profession is being able to have my clients leave with a smile and feel beautiful after their experience in my chair.  I am always updating my education with classes and furthering my knowledge of the latest trends and products. I have my Certificate of Achievement from The Redken Exchange Cut and Know Why course. I specialize and take great pride in doing bridal formal finishings. I have a niche for re-creating styles from photographs to give the bride exactly what she had imagined for her hair!  It is crucial that a bride feels confident in their stylist for their big day and I enjoy guiding a bride through the process. I believe that my relationships with my co-workers are important as we are a family and team here at Belle Mariposa Salon and Spa.


Dawn Fischer - Master Stylist:
I have been a stylist for 32 years and with Belle Mariposa for 4 years.  I enjoy doing haircutting, hair coloring, manicures, pedicures and facial waxing.  I love being able to do a little bit of everything because after all, variety is the spice of life! I specialize in precision haircutting and men’s haircutting.  I am excellent at cutting and styling all hair types but especially fine hair types. I have my Certificate of Achievement from The Redken Exchange Cut and Know Why course. I take the time to listen to my clients’ needs so that I can provide them with the best experience possible.  I am the married mother of a son and daughter!  I take great pride in watching my daughter follow my footsteps in this industry.



Pam Fischer - Master Stylist:
I have grown up in the Lansdale area and I have worked in this industry for 32 years. I attended North Montco Vocational School and moved on to Lansdale School of Cosmetology, where I graduated with my teaching license. For the last four years of my career, I have had the pleasure of being part of a great team at Belle Mariposa Salon and Day Spa.  Haircutting and coloring are my favorite ways to transform a client’s look.  I also enjoy highlighting, perms, manicures, pedicure and facial waxing.  By regularly attending educational classes and workshops, I am able to provide my clients with the looks that are trending today; as well as the products they need to recreate the look they want at home.  What brings joy to my heart is when a client becomes a regular because they love their new look.  Many of my clients have followed and supported me throughout my career as a hair stylist.


Debbie Fritz - Master Stylist:
I have been a hairstylist for over 20 years.  I really enjoy creating haircuts and hairstyles that complement the shape of the client’s face as well as their lifestyle.  It brings me much pleasure to assist the client when choosing a new style or color from the wide variety of options that our salon has to offer.  Manicures, pedicure and waxing are among the other services that I am highly qualified to perform.  I believe that as a professional it is important to attend educational classes to learn the current trends and techniques as well as how to incorporate the newest products.  I also serve the deaf community within my profession as I am proficient in Sign Language.



Dominique Fischer - Esthetician and Associate Stylist:
My dedication to this industry, and sole reason behind choosing this as my career path is dedicated to my mother who I have the pleasure of working with at the salon.  I have been part of the family at Belle Mariposa Salon and Day Spa for 4 years.  Currently, I have been focusing on providing the highest level of services for my clients including facials, pedicures, and manicures. I enjoy doing OPI gel polish as well as nail art.  I am also trained in body waxing including Brazilian waxes.  I specialize in makeup for everyday or special occasions like proms and bridal parties! In addition to your makeup application, lash extensions are a great finishing touch! As a stylist, I enjoy working with color and highlighting techniques, and I am also certified in doing Cezanne Keratin Smoothing Treatments. I am always eager to learn and participate in classes to further my expertise.


Tina Braccia - Associate Stylist
I have loved hair since before I can remember.  Being able to sit next to my pop pop as I watched him cut my families hair is what really triggered my desire for a career as a hairstylist.  Cutting my older sisters hair with craft scissors helped too!  I started at Belle Mariposa in the summer of 2013 while also attending Lansdale Cosmetology part time at night. I started as a shampoo assistant and began learning the ropes.   A year and a half later, I passed State Boards and earned my license, which lead me to my apprenticeship with Tracey VanDenPlas.  Tracey was able to continue my education and prepare me for my new career. Finally in March of 2016, I became a full time stylist - my dream was finally becoming a reality! Today, I am enjoying creating fun looks for my clients in a beautiful salon. I wouldn't trade my career, coworkers, or clients for the world!

Maral Davis - Nail Technician

I have been working in this industry since I was 17 years old. After owning my own nail salon and then taking some time off to raise my two children, my passion for nails has been renewed and I am happy to join Belle Mariposa! I love meeting new people, providing them with a relaxing experience and seeing how pleased they are with the look of their nails when they leave the salon.  I specialize in natural nail services including manicures and pedicures as well gel manicures and pedicures.
