Haley Kask


Social Media Coordinator

Haley shines in her role here as Social Media Coordinator. She was born in Minnesota (Go Vikings!) and raised here in Georgia. She is often spotted and recognized for her cool hair, awesome dance moves, and love for everything Disney and Broadway-esk. (She could listen to and watch Hamilton multiple times without shame or pause.) Makeup consumes half of her heart as one of her favorite ways to pass time.

If Haley is not trying out new makeup looks or watching musicals, she likes to spend time with family, friends and her 3 furbabies (2 pups and 1 cat). Her favorite thing so far about being a part of the Beaty Team is getting to know and meet so many great people! She plans to make a huge splash in the marketing world in her  role for and on behalf of the Beaty Brand.

Shanelle Reeves


Business Development Manager

Shanelle was born in Thomasville Ga but lived in many places due to being an army brat. She is the oldest and definite but unspoken favorite of 3 siblings. She likes to hang with family, hike, play basketball or do anything active in her free time. Nike and Captain America are her love languages but she can often be persuaded with chocolate. Her favorite random facts about herself are that she can play the drums, she has very small ears, and she loves “dad jokes”. She is absolutely ecstatic to be welcomed into the Beaty Team, and looks forward to meeting all of our patients!
