Favorite Portland restaurant: I don't stray too far from the shop! I love Gallo Nero next door for the best Italian and the staff is like family, Prasad for lunch and the best snacks at World Foods and the new Tanner Creek Tavern is a big hit too!!
Favorite bands: In this job, we listen to a lot of music—I'm still trying to perfect the perfect massage/facial playlist. Please send me suggestions if you have any favorites.
Favorite self-care ritual: I strive for balance by taking a yoga class, getting a massage, acupuncture or mani/pedi, grabbing a glass of wine with girlfriends, hiking in forest park, or listening to podcasts—and as a Virgo, planning and organizing keep me happy.
3 must-have Echo products? Dr. Alkaitis Purifying Cleanser, May Lindstrom Jasmine Garden, and Alima Pure Satin Matte Foundation in Neutral 2.
Best beauty tip: You may be tired—who isn't?—but take the time for yourself every night to cleanse your skin before bed and get at least 8 hours of sleep. Make a 5-minute ritual of washing your face, toning, and moisturizing. Our bodies repair and rejuvenate at night, and it is important to go to bed with clean skin that's been given the nourishment it needs to look radiant.
Kimmer is an artist, ballet and jazz dancer, and entrepreneur—her professional jazz performances were once viewed weekly on television! The demands required of her as a professional dancer quickly made evident the harmony needed for having a healthy body on the inside as well as having beauty on the outside. Kimmer began sharing her expertise in health and wellness as a personal trainer receiving her license in both massage and aesthetics. Kimmer went on the road with singer/songwriter James Taylor for 3 years, she practiced and perfected her massage and aesthetics skills on the road. After the traveling life, she provided in-home services for Jim Carrey, Renée Zellweger, Bono, and anyone who needed her services. Today, she continues to offer what she has learned to women and men who value and model the glow of health and vitality to everyone they meet.
Favorite Portland Restaurant: I love Bar Mingo on NW 21st. My husband plays keyboards with a jazz trio there the first two Sundays of the month.
Favorite kind of music: In my high school years, I enjoyed going to rock and roll concerts in the 70’s from Led Zeppelin to Genesis/Peter Gabriel and hundreds of other groups. My uncle owned a ticket agency, so every weekend I got free tickets! That's a time I will never forget—and thats why I have a slight hearing loss, but I’m so grateful.
Favorite self-care ritual: I wake up in the morning drink two tall glasses of water, my husband and I either go to the gym or do a run/walk 3 miles around the park. We then go home and make a healthy breakfast—we’ve been doing this for over 20 years!
3 must-have Echo products: May Lindstrom’s Blue Cocoon, Lily LoLo Pink Passion lipstick, and W3ll People's new blue mascaras.
Favorite Portland Restaurant: There is so much amazing food in Portland, but if I had to choose, I’d say Jacqueline. Though, I have to give a shout out to Yakuza for THE best burger!
Favorite kind of music: Honestly, anything I dance do!
Favorite self-care ritual: Warm lemon water and a green smoothie in the morning, and a good, sweaty workout.
3 must-have Echo products: Arcona’s Gentle Solution, One Love Organic’s Vitamin B Oil Cleanser, and Josh Rosebrook’s Hydrating Accelerator.
Best beauty tip: I truly believe that keeping your skin well hydrated is the answer to almost any skin issue. And always, always sunscreen!
