Jennifer Mitchell, Office Manager
Jennifer transferred from Minneapolis, Minnesota where she has been in the aesthetics industry for 10 years.
After earning a degree in the arts, she decided her appreciation of artistry and esthetics was her passion. She went back to school to get an esthetician’s license in Minneapolis. Her like turned to love so she continued her education as an advanced practice esthetician and went on to be a doctor's assistant and surgical technician. She loves the world of aesthetics, it's always changing and something new to learn everyday!
She's happy to be back in the state of California with her family and the sunshine. When she's not working, you can find her at the beach with her bulldog or attempting to navigate around SLO and the hiking trails.
