Jennifer started working in cosmetics during her senior year in college and has been passionate about the field ever since. She attended Wells College from ’91 to ’92 and then the University of Minnesota from ’92 to ’95, majoring in Psychology. In 2001, she attended the National Aesthetics Institute and found that her background in psychology helped her connect with clients.
“I believe my many years of experience and straight-forward approach allow my clients to trust the guidance I give them.”
For the past 21 years, Jennifer has gained vast experience in the areas of Medical Grade Skin Care and facial treatments. Her expertise also includes various levels of Chemical Peels, SkinPen™ Microneedling, customized facial treatments, VISIA Complexion Analysis, Dermaplaning, and Diamond Glow™ (formerly Dermalinfusion).
“Both of my parents were teachers, so educating people comes very naturally to me. My goal is to have my clients clearly understand the products and treatments they use so they can take control of their skin’s needs and progress.”
Jennifer has been with Charlotte Plastic Surgery since 1998 and has many long-term clients who have spent decades trusting her with their skin. She enjoys getting to know her clients and building friendships with them as well as an effective skin care regimen. Jennifer’s education and background in psychology combined with her knowledge and passion in the field of skin care help her build trust with her patients.
“I discovered a passion for helping people achieve beautiful skin and my career just grew from there. It’s a rewarding and fulfilling career; I simply love connecting with people and giving them the tools to feel amazing about their skin.”
Jennifer loves being at home with her husband Seth and their 3 dogs. In her leisure time, she enjoys hiking, walking her dogs, being outdoors, going to concerts, reading, watching movies, and implementing a healthy diet & active lifestyle. She also enjoys contributing her time to the charitable organization Stop Hunger Now.

“I have super sensitive skin, so I can be really weary about what products and procedures I’m comfortable using. However, Jen is incredible at customizing my skincare plan to maximize my results with each treatment to improve the overall look and feel of my complexion.”
– J. Charles
“I have never had Dermaplaning done before but have always wanted to try it so before a wedding I was in, I decided to come to Charlotte Plastic Surgery! I explained my concerns to Jen and she was able to immediately recommend the best treatment for me! I had an amazing session of Dermaplaning along with a mask that made my skin look bright, youthful, and glowing! I felt so confident for all the photos I was in! Thanks so much Jen!”
