Jenny Wyatt, Esthetician (full time)
I have been an esthetician since 1993 and still loving it. My family and I moved to Gananoque 8 years ago and that has been the best decision. We love the community and I love my clients. I spend my days making individuals feel better. Outside of esthetics, I spend my time with my family and have a small hobby farm. My business is a whole body experience where I meet the needs of all of our senses. What makes me unique is that my services are a passion and each experience is geared to my client’s needs I am very proud of the success that I have had in this industry and still very surprised that I have developed such a supportive clientele base in this area. I knew no one when I first moved into the community and feel so grateful for getting to know such amazing people in such a small period of time :)
