Jennifer Schwens

RPN, Medical Esthetic Practitioner

Jennifer has always had a special interest in health, beauty and skin care. She graduated from Conestoga College in 2008 as a Registered Practical Nurse and went on to obtain her certificate as a Medical Esthetic Practitioner with honours from Centennial College.

At the same time, her interest in holistic health was nurtured in the home, where homeopathy was used successfully to treat minor and major ailments. Thus, she has grown intensely fond and knowledgeable about the holistic field.

Having worked in the spa industry, Jennifer witnessed positive but also very negative effects of skin treatments and cosmetic procedures.
