Co-FounderA West Coast native with a passion for skiing, Julie decided to move from Chicago to Boulder with her two children. She chose Colorado because of her strong college ties and the quality of life she could provide as a fresh start for her family.
Julie spent 25 years in the hospitality industry, and 15 of those years with Starwood Hotels and Resorts, Inc. in various guest service and sales and marketing executive-level positions. Always a committed spa and natural-skincare junkie, she knew she could bring outstanding customer service to a different industry—and one that she loves!
In her free time, Julie enjoys, not in any particular order, skiing, cycling, travel, food, friends, family, and of course… spa visits of any kind!
Co-FounderJennifer has always had a passion for natural and organic skin care products, and started getting facials in her early 20s after moving to Colorado. Realizing that the climate in Boulder can be harsh, she decided that taking care of her skin needed to be top of mind. Jennifer has 20+ years of experience as an esthetician and business owner. She prides herself on quality services, and dedication to her clients through her commitment to natural products and treatments. Jlounge has fulfilled her longtime goal of expanding and growing her business into a full-service spa, and now skin care line, JLessencials.
Jennifer has raised her 2 boys, Jackson and Caden, in Boulder. In her free time, she enjoys travel, hiking with her dog Skyler, biking, yoga, and spending quality time with friends and family.
JLessencials believes in giving back. So, having been personally affected by the devastation caused by cancer, we’ve committed 1% of our annual sales to Cancer League of Colorado. Which means that with every JLessencials purchase you make, you’ll be advancing cancer research.
Cancer League of Colorado was founded in by five women whose families were affected by cancer. Their heartache sparked a mission to raise money for research and patient care. Today, this all-volunteer charity is at the forefront of finding the causes and treatments of many types of cancer.
