Jennifer Scheel has the pivotal role of managing the daily operations of Derm Aesthetics of Northern Kentucky. But as a Licensed Master Esthetician, her duties go far beyond the administrative side of things. Jennifer is also often right in the mix of patient treatments, thanks to her more than 15 years of industry experience specializing in advanced laser and skin treatments.

Jennifer grew up on a tobacco farm in Winchester, Kentucky. When she wasn’t tending to her chores on the farm, young Jennifer was kindling an interest in aesthetics due to the impact she noticed it had on people.

“I was always very drawn to aesthetics,” she said. “I noticed at a young age that when people felt good about themselves, they were nicer and more confident. It was that aspect of it that I was drawn to. When you look good, you feel good and treat others better.”

Jennifer attended Southern Virginia University where she earned her degree in education. Though she originally planned to be an elementary school teacher, she soon realized life had other things in store for her.

After moving to Salt Lake City due to her husband’s job, Jennifer aspired to continue her education there. But the cost of out-of-state tuition proved to be an obstacle. Instead, she ended up purchasing a cosmetic and skincare studio, which helped set the course for her future in aesthetics.

“At that point, I knew it was exactly what I wanted to do,” Jennifer said. “I went and got my master esthetician license and laser certification from there.”

When her husband later transferred to New York City for work, she sold that business and went to work for a prominent cosmetic surgeon in New York and frequently practiced in other parts of the world, as well. When he was practicing internationally, a well-known surgeon from Beverly Hills, California would fill in at the New York office, exposing Jennifer to even more industry facets from other affluent locations.

Jennifer even played an integral part in launching two successful skincare lines. Saks Fifth Avenue first approached the practice she worked at about creating a high-end, medical-grade skincare line called Skin Therapy, and later, fashion designer Nicole Miller partnered with the practice to launch another brand to coincide with her new clothing line called Artelier. Jennifer was the right person to partner with for these endeavors due to her extensive skincare knowledge.

“I’d like to see more people be able to have these treatments,” she said. “It’s not something that’s for the uber wealthy or the pretentious. You can be a farmer and get Botox. You can be blue collar and want to do something about your sunspots.”

“I was aware of what ingredients worked. That’s also part of my esthetician background – knowing what ingredients deliver the best results,” Jennifer said. “I just worked with it every day and dealt with a vast variety of patients and skin issues.”

After about 14 years in New York, the time came for Jennifer’s son to start high school, which initiated a welcomed return to her home state of Kentucky. She quickly crossed paths with Dr. Susan Bushelman, who just knew she was the right person to manage her practice.

“My job is to run the aesthetic side of the business in an administrative role,” Jennifer said. “I do have that clinical background, and we just sort of hit the ground running. I know the other end of the spectrum. I know the surgery side of it. I think, as far as selling and communicating to patients, I’m better at that. There’s a lot more that we could be doing as far as bringing in more advanced treatments to keep us on the forefront.”

Jennifer hopes to tear down the stigma often associated with aesthetic treatments catering only to certain walks of life.

“I’d like to see more people be able to have these treatments,” she said. “It’s not something that’s for the uber wealthy or the pretentious. You can be a farmer and get Botox. You can be blue collar and want to do something about your sunspots.”

That’s why Jennifer plans to nurture the same degree of quality patient experiences at Derm Aesthetics that she was privy to in New York.

“I’d love to see a practice in Northern Kentucky up to that same level and quality and advancement in technology as it was in New York,” she said. “I’ve been to the future. I’ve seen it and I know what’s there. I want to help bring it here.”

In her spare time, Jennifer enjoys spending time with her husband and two children. She also likes to shoot guns, visit her grandmother on the tobacco farm, and loves to shop.
