Today we’d like to introduce you to Jessica Abreu.
So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I began my journey as a teacher. I have always loved teaching others, whether it was children or adults. I taught middle school science for 10 years and loved it. When I got pregnant with my second child, I slowly decided that the classroom was not where I desired to be anymore and started focusing on helping people with their health and wellness. I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease 13 years ago and found nutrition, supplementation, and education extremely important. I was super thin, unhealthy, malnourished because my body was attacking itself and needed infusions and shots to help me reach optimal wellness and sometimes just to feel ok!
Through my own journey to be healthy, I discovered this passion for helping others find it too. It was a natural progression to go from teaching science to students to educating adults on their health. Guiding people on their journey to feel good and be healthy while being able to be home with my daughter made me happy and fulfilled my desire to help others. I loved when women started feeling better how it made them light up and it was not long before I was taking classes and trainings to pursue makeup and skincare.
I enhance woman’s natural beauty and teach them how to do it as well. My passion is helping them to see their true beauty and feel beautiful from the inside out. I enjoy teaching women the importance of proper skincare, makeup application, and cleansing of tools. I especially love when I start with wellness coaching, then become her makeup artist for her wedding and continue to see her through maternity etc. I am not just there to put on some makeup and make her look gorgeous, for she already is. I have been there on the journey helping her stay healthy and feel beautiful so that she radiates!
Now, on my third child, I am the healthiest I have ever been and the happiest. Life is good and I am excited about the future and to see what it brings.
Has it been a smooth road?
The road is never straight and it hardly ever smooth. You must be persistent! I struggled most with the change of career. I was known to everyone as a school teacher and changing that image to be wellness consultant and makeup artist was tough. It can still be difficult, but I will not give up in the pursuit of living my dream and passion.
My advice is to be true to yourself and keep moving forward. It will take time, motivation, possibly a few tears, but the end is worth it! Believe in yourself and you will be unstoppable. (I know that sounds like a poster you should have hung in your room, but it is the truth!)
We’d love to hear more about Wellness and Beauty Business.
I am a health, wellness and beauty consultant. What sets me apart is my focus on feeling great and looking your best from the inside out.
I am able to help women feel great and look beautiful. I specialize in enhancing natural beauty and letting women see how gorgeous they are before makeup is applied. I teach them how to improve their skin, clean their tools, and use makeup properly. I do makeup for events, but also hold one-on-one sessions and small classes to teach the basics.
You cannot look your best if you are not feeling your best! I am able to help women and men with finding their way to reach their optimal health and wellness goals. Sometimes, they want to lose weight and sometimes it is helping with supplementation since they are not eating right! I enjoy finding out what they are doing and helping them to change the ways they view food, exercise, and wellness. Being well and healthy does not mean skinny, and for many people, this is a hard idea to squash! Coaching and mentoring is done in person and/or online.
Do you feel like there was something about the experiences you had growing up that played an outsized role in setting you up for success later in life?
I was brought up to believe that hard work and determination lead you to great things. I have always carried these values with me and am so thankful to my parents for instilling these in me.
