Introduced to steam facials and clay masks by her father, Jessie spent many childhood evenings pampering herself while guzzling Nesquik and watching Nickelodeon. Her exhaustive attention to skin proved to be fortuitous as she battled overactive sebaceous glands and offensive pore sizes through her teens and early twenties. After graduating from Northwestern University, nicole traded the Midwest for the east coast. Her penchant for beauty continued, as evidenced by the enabling sales team at Sephora and American Express. When she’s not testing products or writing, Jessie is nose-deep in the work of a twentieth century literary legend or wide-eyed watching a Bravo reality show unfold.
