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: Sacred Money and Prosperity Pie in Multnomah Village!
What is the first thing you do in the morning: Tell the universe how grateful I am and then drink a big glass of water.
Favorite self-care ritual: A morning walk or jog with my husband, taking time every night to do a mix of stretches from my dancing days, and following up my stretching with a full body scrub in a steamy shower.
3 must-have Echo products: Vitamin B Cleansing Oil and Brand New Day by One Love Organics and Laurel's Restore Nightly Facial Balm.
How did you get started in the beauty industry? I learned the value of taking care of myself during my dancing days. After I retired from dancing I wanted to give back by helping others learn about skincare and self care rituals and help make people feel beautiful.
What are your goals for the next 5 years? To do lots of microneedling and traveling!
Best Beauty Tip: Press your tongue up on the roof of your mouth 3 times a day - this will help tighten the muscles under your chin!
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!
