Jennifer has enjoyed being an Esthetician for the past 7 years. She is a true believer in the phrase, “It’s never too late to follow your dreams & passions.” At 42, Jennifer entered Rudae’s School of Beauty Culture which was fully funded by The Oneida Tribe of Wisconsin as is her heritage. This was a tremendous opportunity for her to spread her wings and follow her passion to help others feel & look better through the gift of touch. She also loves using the fundamentals of good skin care products and regimen. “It’s more than just rubbing someone’s muscles to help them de-stress. It’s finding that connection with clients through hearing their heart and story. When I find that connection between their life story and mine, it becomes personable. I hope they feel that I genuinely care and try to make the most of each session. Now, not everybody likes to talk during their session and I respect that. My intention is to make them feel like they are the only person in the world that matters at that moment. I’m so grateful for the clients that I now call friends. ”Being an Esthetician allows so much opportunity to practice an array of services from Facials, massages, and waxing, to Eyelash Extensions, Lash Lifts, Derma planning, and so much more. “Meeting I-Chun has been a huge blessing which will allow me to spread my wings and dream bigger. I’m so thankful to have an opportunity to work with such a big hearted, talented, and caring person. What does the future hold for me and our spa? I can hardly wait.” Jennifer’s hobbies include making and selling crafts & jewelry, walking/hiking with friends and family, dancing, working out, purging clutter, and tending to her flowers. She especially enjoys trips to Tennessee and riding the Harley with the man of her dreams– 31 years and counting. She is blessed with a beautiful 20yr old daughter who is an incredible artist & human being. She is also very proud of her 24yr old son who is a Marine and a new father. He is married to his beautiful wife, which in turn, blessed her with a beautiful granddaughter that she absolutely loves and adores.
My passion for massage therapy and bodywork began at a young age, as I was raised in a family that understood the powerful healing benefits of massage. After several years working in the business world, I realized I wanted to use my passion for helping others in a different way, so I began classes at The Academy of Massage Therapy in Richmond, Indiana, graduating in 2008. I owned and operated a thriving massage therapy practice in Columbia City for nearly 10 years, before returning to another one of my passions, working in the nonprofit sector. I completed my Bachelor’s of Science degree in Nonprofit Leadership in 2018, graduating from Huntington University.
My new position as the Office Manager for Shanti Therapeutic Center marries my love of massage therapy and my many years of professional experience in business. I look forward to meeting each of you and helping you determine how we can best meet your wellness goals.
