Friends for over 15 years, Shareese and Jessica have always shared the entrepreneurial spirit.
After 6 years of being a financial counselor and married with 3 children, Jessica still felt as if something was missing in her life. With an increasing love for all natural Skin care and the desire to become more knowledgeable and educate others, Jessica decided to take a leap of faith and quit her job to start a new career in the beauty industry where she became a Licensed Esthetician.
Jessica was the Lead Esthetician at a Medical Center in MI where she was able to offer a variety of Medical Esthetic Services. She then managed Massage Green franchise spa, overseeing 20 employees and soon became Co-Director of Esthetics helping construct a new esthetics department in their Michigan market for over 6 spa locations. Jessica hired and trained all of the estheticians on products, protocols and implemented new procedures and facial techniques.
Jessica managed one of Metro Detroit’s top Casino Spas with gross annual sales over 1 million dollars. She has traveled the country attending educational seminars, trade shows, skincare classes and has traveled to Rome and Florence to teach Business management seminars to spa managers at some of the top hotels in Italy. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her family, assisting with her children’s extra curricular activities, serving on the PTA board at her daughters’ school and being a Troop Leader for the Girl Scouts of America. Her passion is in skin care and spa management and she continues to immerse herself in the latest treatments, technology and education so that she may continue to educate her employees, clients and take her facial bar services to the next level.
Shareese is a Business professional and beauty expert; with over 6 years of finance experience, and half a lifetime of experience in all things health & beauty. For her, great skin care is just plain fun, and it’s a blessing to be able to share my passion with the world.
She wants women to understand that taking care of your skin, even when you’re wearing make up, is an essential part of achieving naturally healthy looking skin.
