Jaime's story
Posted on

Hi, I'm a founding member of RECESS and the Chief Creative Officer. I studied painting in college (after starting off pre-med) and then earned a Master of Fine Arts in painting. I've always been torn between science and art, being interested in the invention side of things. I have experience working with a fashion photographer, designers at several e-commerce sites, and most recently opened a creative agency for high-profile startups to help build their brands online. 

I was raised in Florida by a fisherman dermatologist so I learned early on to watch out for harmful ingredients and how to protect my skin from the sun. Dinner table conversations revolved around discussing dermatology and medical journal articles. I grew up going to dermatology conventions and keeping up with my skin knowledge and what the biggest allergens of the year were. Not to mention I was graced with the presence of very sensitive skin and a skin allergy, all of which has only made me more passionate about providing safe, accessible products through RECESS. 

When I'm not working I can be found at museums, trying out different pilates and gyrotonics studios, or flying home to Florida to go fishing with my family.
