Dr. Jen


I am super passionate about skin and believe that healthy skin can only be achieved by elevating the WHOLE person.  So, my approach to Skin Wellness is all about incorporating mind, body AND soul, to achieve optimal results. I founded Dr. Jen Knows Skin to teach the masses easy and effective ways to nourish their skin, outside & in.

Cheers to HEALTHY SKIN!
