After studying fine arts and wildlife biology in California, Jess Mathison came to Seattle to cultivate her creativity. She enrolled in an apprentice program at Sapien after being a dedicated client so she could learn more about skincare science, and extend her knowledge and care to others.
Jess graduated her Master Esthetics apprentice program in 2022 with 2600 more hours than the state requirements, a Washington State Master Esthetics License, and lots of close mentorship, and hands-on experience in the real world. All of this while being paid a fair and living wage (instead of paying tuition!) so she can start her career on the right foot.
Jess is happily living with her lover and two canine children in their Everett home. When she isn’t at Sapien, you can catch her gardening, cooking, powerlifting, walking her beasts in the suburbs or practicing witchcraft.
