A licensed aesthetician of 20 years, Jenni has always been the go-to girl for skincare advice. Her well rounded background provides a unique perspective to the industry, and takes you from behind the treatment room door to behind the brand. A very particular (borderline OCD) routine has allowed her to streamline her skincare collection to the products that have proven results.
Jenni’s experience spans the industry from resorts salons and spas to medical spas, and from hands-on treatments to running business operations. She has worked extensively with worldwide skincare brands to increase brand awareness, and is now focused on effective content creation to educate both consumers and professional skincare providers.
Jenni gets excited about research behind each brand she works with, and can only truly stand behind a product or treatment if she has seen proven results. She prides herself if working with amazing products, inspiring people, and remarkable places. When she isn’t busy playing with products or maintaining her manicure, she is busy chasing around her energetic 5 year old, Jack, or having cocktails with her husband on the beach.
“As an esthetician I am so enjoying your website and Facebook page. Learning more about all the wonderful companies in our industry. Your passion and knowledge for our industry is felt in all you do.”
