AMERICAN SPA

American Spa Magazine, contacted me in May 2008, to write an article about the products I was co creating and to submit a few recipes the readers could concoct "at home" .... I believe one with Avocado and one with Oatmeal.

About my background

How did I get started?

My experience in skincare dates back to 1992, in Olympia, WA-my hometown, when I worked as a cosmetics consultant and makeup artist for a major beauty retailer. After that, I had the opportunity to work with a cosmetics chemist and co-create products for a natural beauty product line that sold in over 3,000 stores nationwide such as Nordstrom, Whole Foods, Wild Oats, Anthropologie. My goals gradually shifted from strictly wholesaling products to opening a Day Spa & Boutique — a concept that came to fruition in Dallas, TX

with my sweet Day Spa Avocado Tree,

eventually called Apothecurious, Fresh Spa & Boutique…

Approached by many larger box stores to buy-out our concept, we eventually sold the business in 2008.

Since then, I've had further experience as a Body Care Manufacturer and Spa & Boutique Owner before eventually becoming a NIC board Licensed Esthetician. Operating first in Dallas and later in Seattle, my spas were repeatedly written up by the press* in glowing reviews and even voted “Best Facial in Town.” (See 'Fresh Face Seattle)

It was an amazing experience.

During this time, I discovered my love for mentoring and apprenticing budding Estheticians.

Through this process and as the culmination of my years in this business, I've grown to understand the importance of possessing a strong knowledge of ingredients, including their imperative freshness and effectiveness on our skin.

Now I bring my years of experience and love for the business to one guest (and apprentice) at a time and students in a classroom setting, and finally by sharing my knowledge and education with you, one face at a time. Jesseca M Smith Esthetics ELITE Resource Guide out fall 2019.

Still loving what I do. 

"I look forward to having you as my guest."

This was one of my sweet office spaces outside Austin, TX. I had for a while just before a devastating flood changed my professional course and had to move cities. The town suffered tremendous loss but came together "Wimberley Strong". I love that little city.
