Portland Oregon Esthetician

Janelle L

Waxer

Janelle was born and raised in Portland and she comes from a family of vegan cheesemakers. Food is her love language and she loves to cook and bake. If she could only eat two things for the rest of her life, she should choose Massaman curry and dessert (counts as one thing right?). She loves all things science and enjoys learning new things. In fact, she is currently learning to snowboard. You will most likely see Janelle drinking coffee all day and you will find her water bottle close by because she won’t go anywhere without it. She loves animals but is terrified of bugs. If you show Janelle a sappy animal video, she is guaranteed to cry so it may be best if you watch Grey’s Anatomy or any TV drama with her instead.
