She is certified in a wide array of skin rejuvenation therapies including chemical peels, advanced facial massage, LED photofacials, and manual lymphatic drainage. In addition to her esthetics training, Jayme holds a bachelor of arts from the University of Washington with a double major in Communications and Social Sciences. A native Seattleite, Jayme relocated to Austin in 2017 with the dream of starting an esthetics practice in her favorite city.

Jayme developed an interest in skin care from an early age. A pediatric cancer survivor, she developed lymphedema in her limbs as a result of radiation treatments. This condition causes chronic swelling and pain in the limbs and is often progressive. She was able to gain control of her lymphedema through adopting a daily skin care routine and lifestyle changes including yoga, mindfulness, and a plant-based diet. She has learned firsthand that the best approach to healthy and vibrant skin addresses the mind, body, and spirit in addition to treating the skin's surface.

 When Jayme is not in the treatment room, you can find her exploring new restaurants with friends, in a yoga or spin class, or strolling around south Austin with her husband and two Australian Shepherds.
