Meet the Staff
Jessica received her manicuring license in 2002, and has been a fully licensed cosmetologist since 2003 (hair, skin and nails), but her truest love has always been for nails, and her experience in the industry dates back much farther than her professional license. Besides the little manicuring shop she’d practically set up in her family’s home at age 10, she began formal nail care training at the age of 13, training to compete in advanced nail care competitions, and won a national championship by age 16. (SkillsUSA-VICA 2002) Her passion for teaching nail care began early in her career when she starting coaching other nail care students for competitions her senior year of high school, and became a licensed instructor of cosmetology the following year. Through her passion for nail care, and desire to expand her unique hand and foot care concepts, Painted Red Nails was born in Osterville in 2005, and expanded to Mashpee in 2011. Jessica has studied under German podiatrist Katherine Vongavel and is a Certified Master Pedicurist through the North American School of Pedicuring, and a Dr. Hauschka Certified Esthetician. Jessica feels truly blessed to practice what she loves every day and to share even further in that joy through teaching others. All of Painted Red Nail’s staff is carefully trained in Jessica’s signature services and advanced skin care techniques for the hand and foot, which are continually evolving. “I literally lie awake in bed at night dreaming up my next theme service, or solving a skin care problem for a client. I know I am nuts, but I really love my job,” says Jessica. Jessica is the Capes resident organic product maven and she’s famous for everything “hands and feet”!
