We had the good fortune of connecting with Jessica Schaefer and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Jessica, what do you attribute your success to?
Continuous investment in personal development & business development including ongoing education, trainings and professional memberships. Having other colleagues in the industry to reach out to and mentors to help guide me through this journey!
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I’ve been training quite extensively the last year and a half on working with the skin from the inside out. My business has taken a shift to work more in line with the body as a whole and how and why we need to consider mind, body, emotions and spirit when cultivating and maintaining healthy skin. Ultimately, the power is in our own hands to create the skin and life we desire and this can be accomplished by exploring oneself, how the whole entire being functions in relation to the skin , and that mindset and our perception of reality can shift our whole life. In my treatments I create a space of serenity to calm the whole body. It is almost a meditation. I focus not only on nourishing the skin, but calming the central nervous system through restorative touch and advanced massage focused on moving energy, Lymph fluid and balancing.
Any great local spots you’d like to shoutout?
San Diego is my home and there are so many great places. The beaches Coronado, Sunset Cliffs & Encinitas meditation gardens! The Zoo is always fun. I love the little old mining town of Julian and the mountains. I would have them try every local taco shop. We have some of the best Mexican food!
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
Of course my Mom! She is always the most supportive and encouraging of my endeavors offering wise words and perspectives I may not see. My professional groups Wholistic Ally, The Beauty Biz Club and The Spa Profit Lab and all the wonderful Estheticians I call my “esthi besties” that I have met and connected with over my 9 years in the business!
