First Friday Feature Artist: Jen Keller of ZenJens
Who are you, where are you from, and what do you do? I'm Jen Keller a left handed Aquarius that was born and raised here in Portland, OR. I am a woman of many facets, but best known for my Esthetic (skincare) services and handcrafted skin care products.
What I do truly has 3 parts to it:
The first is specializing in Full Body Waxing - I wax here, there and everywhere that one could imagine. Doing that for over 10 years, I’m known as the "waxing ninja.” Before you even know it, your hair is gone and you barley know what happened, boom.
The Second is that I give custom Facials that start from the tips of your toes to the top of your head. Most people leave in a blissed out state, with their body, mind and skin in a glowing daze wondering how the time could have gone by so quickly. Lastly, I make small batches of all natural artisan skin care products!
Why do you do what you do?
I love to create, Im uber picky about details (especially when giving services) and I love helping people feel and look their best.
When I started in this industry, it was to get to the core root of my own skincare issues. After much learning of how the skin functions like it does, it brought me great joy to share my knowledge helping others become a
better version of themselves. The more I learned about the skin, the more I desired to use products that worked in conjunction with it. I found it was hard to find good products out there, so I started making my own all natural
products focusing on plants, flowers and fruits. I ended up going back to school for natural product manufacturing and here I am, doing what I do!
What themes do you pursue?
Being mindful, loving and honest. Working hard, having fun, being real and raising others up.
If you had a superpower, what would it be?
I would be the truth serum - radiating positive vibrations to the world and making everyone be kind and honest with eachother.
