Jessica Marie

All I have ever wanted to do was help people so it was no surprise that I chose a medical profession. For nearly two decades, I worked in the medical field as a certified nursing assistant. I took care of the elderly in a dementia care facility and as a medical assistant and IV therapist. I worked in the imaging department at Boulder Community Hospital, this is where I discovered my love for anatomy. I worked as a phlebotomist delivering IV nutrients to the chronically ill and cancer patients as a medical assistant at a busy Oncology practice. I was the top aesthetic injector and trained physician to inject platelet rich plasma and dermal fillers. I also spent just over a decade managing a Urological Oncology Clinic, Holistic Practice and Medical Spa. It was a wonderfully rewarding job and I had an incredible opportunity to work with some of the most talented practitioners in the country. After a few years, I decided to follow my heart and find a different way to help people.

I have always been passionate about my education and continued studying and training under some of the best trainers in the world. It was while I was at Choices In Health that I received my Medical Terminology Certificate and IV Nutritional Therapy Certificate. While at Great Alchemy Med Spa, I earned my certification in Botox and Dermal Fillers through Empire Medical and Allergan. I also earned my Platelet Rich Plasma Certification from Dr. Charles Runels, the inventor of the Vampire procedures and then I had the privilege to work alongside Dr. Emilia Ripoll, one of the country’s elite trainers in Platelet Rich Plasma procedures and one of the most brilliant physicians I have ever had the privilege to work with.

Yet, I wanted to continue to study, and find more ways to help people. I wanted to help women feel beautiful and regain their confidence so I studied at School of Botanical and Medical Aesthetics to obtain my Esthetician License and shortly after I became certified in permanent cosmetics and then received additional training in 3D areola pigmentation. I am a member of the Associated Skin Care Professionals, the largest and most recognized network of skin care professionals. Shortly after that, I embarked on my greatest journey yet. I started my medical spa, J Marie Skin Studio. It has been the best decisions I have ever made. While it is important to address the cosmetic issues like fine lines and wrinkles, it is equally as important to address the overall health of the skin. I use a blend of medical and botanical aesthetics to help people feel beautiful again and get the skin back to health. I have been able to hone my skills by performing facials, chemical peels, micro-needling, permanent makeup artistry, body treatments, platelet rich plasma, dermaplaning, Hydrafacial, microdermabrasion, botox, dermal fillers, along with other skin care treatments. Additionally, I also wanted to give my clients a sense of security knowing that I can act appropriately in the event of an adverse reaction, so I completed the EMT program at Front Range Community College.

I work with each individual to come up with a unique healthy skin care regimen that they can easily maintain at home and keep their skin glowing and beautiful. I attribute my success to my perseverance, dedication to continue my education, and my passion to help women and men find their confidence in their own skin.

Currently, I am working towards becoming an educator in my industry. I mentor new estheticians and teach, train and develop their skill set. The J Marie Skin Studio team is composed of like-minded individuals who value community. It is my goal to continue to help different organizations and charities in my community.

When I am not at the studio or at an event, I am with my feet in the sand. I love to travel. I have visited Costa Rica, Jamaica, Several places in Mexico and throughout the United States. I enjoy parasailing, jet skiing,white water rafting and boating. I have a fierce love for my family, friends and my community.

Ray Brandon

Ray Brandon has spent over two decades working in the medical field. From a medic in the Army to an EMT there’s not much he hasn’t seen. He quickly realized his passion lay in IV Nutrition Therapy. He trained with Dr. Frank Shallenberger and Dr. Robert Rowen but has spent nearly ten years learning from and working under Dr. Emilia Ripoll, one of the country’s top physicians, doing IV Nutrition therapy, oxidative and anti-aging medicine.
He is passionate about IV Nutrition because people aren’t getting all of the nutrients they need through their food and because of all of the environmental toxins and inflammation in our guts, our bodies do not break down and properly absorb all of the supplements that we are injesting. Ray takes the time to explain your needs and what nutritional IV is best for you.
After working in the ER, Urgent Care, and various health centers all over Denver, Ray decided to join J Marie Skin Studio and offer his first-rate skill set for their new IV Nutrition Therapy program. Jmaire Skin Studio is excited to have Ray join their team and offer their clients more elite services for their health, wellness, and beauty needs.
When not working, he can be found coaching his son’s football team, working on his videography, or traveling around the world.
